Glass Block LOVE Vinyl

To be honest, I never really decorated for Valentines. I always wanted to, but I never found anything I wanted to display for the holiday, until now. I am really excited about my new glass block. My husband and his friends even said they really like it, and that means a lot considering the source. :) I have one glass block in my home and I am using our method of using velum paper and changing the paper for each holiday.

Supplies Needed:
-1 glass block (You can get them at your local home store. You can even buy ones with pre-made holes in them for your lights)
-Ribbon (I got mine at the dollar store)
-Velum (Optional)
-Lights to put in the block (optional)

How to Make:
1. Put a ribbon on the block
2. Put the vinyl on the glass block or the velum
3. If you are using the velum, you can put the vinyl right on the velum and then stick the velum to your glass block. My sister-in-law suggested to use the non permanent sticky dots for scrap booking on the glass block to stick the velum to the block. This way you can change your velum with every holiday.
4. Put the lights in your block.

How do you put the lights IN the block?

To put lights in the block, you will need to drill a hole in the back. You can also buy pre drilled blocks.
