Christmas Bulbs!

Oh my, my, my!! I'm going to have a tree of these gorgeous bulbs.
 If I don't end up giving them away! I just love making Christmas decorations for my friends. I found these PLASTIC, gotta love plastic cause the kids and dog, at Michaels for .99! I need to go get more. I used the Mini Magnolia's. I just love these stamps, especially if you are doing something like this where you're making a lot, you don't spend a lot of time coloring.

 I made this for the new Challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge which is Anything Christmas. I hope you will join us.

Challenges
Wild Orchid Crafts - Christmas

*Directions*
I cut my image out on a Spellbinder oval then cut a second oval for my sentiment and put it back to back. I attached a small eyelet at the top and tied some twine so I can have control of the image once I put it in the bulb. Before putting the image in the bulb I took a Q-tip and  and put some Tacky Glue on on it and put the glue on the inside of the bottom of the bulb. then I sprinkled white Flowersoft and some Silver German Glass in the pottom and shook it around. Then I rolled my image and stuck it, holding onto the twine. Then I pressed the image along the side of the bulb in the opposite direction, flattening it. Leave the Twine hanging out and attach the lid, flowers and bow!




 



Supplies
Stamps - Mini #3071 Snowy hug, Kraftin' Kimmie, Magnolia Snowflakes
Paper - Copic Xpress
Ink - Memento and Copics
Accessories - Flowersoft
