    Happy NSD you all!!!! Are you ready to get some gluey hands???
    For my challenge, I ask you to create a little cozy-ness, in the form of a cute tealight/partylight, home decoration. I ask you to create at least one. (they are quick and simple) but a couple, or even 3 of them will look even better.

    Here's a list of what I used to make mine:
    2 glasses (to put a tealight in)
    some scraps of paper
    a border punch, or you can use a string of lace.
    Twine – jute rope – or any other cord of your liking
    Bling from the April Main Kit
    liquid glue (I used Beacon 3 in 1)
    A tiny bit of Gesso
    2 tealights.

    I did do a quick step by step on mine, so here it is:

    1_zps51d6c5d8.jpg
    I started out with 2 little glasses

    2_zps6c66cdc5.jpg
    Then I cut for each glass a paper strip at 2 x 7.1/4 inch

    3_zps65680bed.jpg
    I used a border punch at the top, and made snips at the bottom, to adjust it better to the glasses, without getting wrinkles in the paper.

    I flipped the paper strip over and added glue to the top part.

    I folded around the glass, and let it dry for a few minutes.

    I tued the glass upside down and fold back the spippets. Then I added glue to the glass (Beacon 3 in 1)

    7_zps3d3fc90d.jpg
    Fold the snippets back and gently pressed them into the glue.

    8_zps3ac905cc.jpg
    Then I added glue to the bottom part of the paper and took my twine to wrap it around

    Till it was half way the glass. I glued the end of the twine.

    10_zps6c4ba7a4.jpg
    I cut a strip of that awesome BLING we got in the April Main Kit

    11_zpsd1107f70.jpg
    And glued it to the glass, like in the picture.

    12_zpsb5c7fb61.jpg
    To finish it off, I added some Gesso, using a fan brush.

    I inserted my tealights and filled up a bottle with pearls, to go with my tea-lights and called it: Home Sweet Home!!!

    I hope that I inspired you to create some of these cute tealights/partylights.

                    So I decided to make 2…one for my mom and one for my MIL. I will make a gorgeous tag to go with each (Maggi's challenge y'all?) and wrap them in a cute little box.

                    They were just plain and sitting in my candle drawer…unused. I began by coloring with alcohol inks, dipped a piece of lace in mod podge and added it around, cut the swirls out of a super heavyweight Teresa Collins paper and then covered them in mod podge to make them a tad more sturdy. glued the cluseter together with E6000 (so it would be sure to stay).
