Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot I chose to make Crystal Goblet Lamp Shades. I first made the pattern in the shape and length that I want the shade to be. I used velumn to for the shade it self. To hold the ends of the shade together I used Tear-ific tape. It really holds well. Using the heart Cuttlebug Folder I dry embossed the heart in the middle of the shade. I made the cross hatch with using the pergamano technique. The K is cut out of Core'dinations gemstone with the Jasmine cartridge. I sanded the K to give it a softer look. The cute little butterflies are cut out of the Core'dinations pearls paper.
I used the MS Pop Up Butterfly punch. They are the "cast off" pieces which left me a wonderful border for latter use. (LOL) I found this wonderful lace with pearls weaved through it at Joann's in the material section. Using the Tear-ific tape I laid it all a long the bottom of the shade then placed the lace over tape. I then cut the little pearls out of the lace and used them in the middle of my butterflies. If you use real candles you will want to spray a retardant on the paper so it won't catch on fire. I found it here. If you use battery operated candles it will be fine. To finish it off I added a pretty little bow around the base of the Goblet. Hope this inspires you to try one. If you would like to get the pattern for my shade. Please send me a message. I'll be out of town untill Tuesday June 22, but I'll get it right to you when I get back!
