Lighted Glass Block - Family Theme

I had a request for a lighted glass block and they were not very specific about what they wanted and just told me "oh do what ever you think will be good". I just love it when people give me such great ideas *okie looks out with deadpan look on her face* when they want something made.

I wanted to avoid personalizing it because I'm getting really tired of doing all the initials, split letters and names so I opted for a nice quote on the block. By the way, the block is not green but the background was green and it is giving it a green effect. 

I used vinyl to cut out the background design and did the process of putting the whole layer of vinyl on the block and then weeded out from around the design. The reason I went this route is because it is easier for me to get the design centered. 

This picture shows the background design a little better. I really like doing the blocks where most of it is frosted and there is a delicate design of plain glass, it just looks fancy to me. If you click on the picture it will make it bigger and you can see the detail better. 

I used a string of 35 miniature lights for the inside and then to add just a little pizzazz I tied some black and silver glittery wired ribbon around the block and then just made a bow at the top.

If you would like to purchase this file you may do so and once purchased it is yours to do with what you wish, as long as you are not re-selling or sharing the file with others. The file has 3 layers, a layer with a square and the base design in it, another layer that is just the base design and then the top layer of the quote. If you going to use this for making a glass block you will need to measure your area and adjust the design accordingly. There is 4 squares that are registration marks to help you get the quote centered and once the quote is applied you remove the squares.

Price: 2.00
