Thanks for posting this Christa! I've wanted to do it, but wasn't sure what the best method was. This is such a cheap and easy decoration that looks awesome!

OK ladies I just got home from michaels where i spent about an hour being completely overwhelmed! I picked up some light blue velum, some cream colored velum, a few white bags, spray adhesive & a Fiskars paper trimmer. I plan to give this project a try tomorrow (FI made early dinner plans I just found out about). After being initially overwhelmed in the store, I found it to be a very inspiring place. Yes, this was my first time in a craft store. I also bought a plain wreath, some pine cones & some gold ribbon & am half way to making cool wreath for our front door.

 

What's wrong with me? LOL><

Welcome to the dark side! HeHe!

 

My FI calls it a "crap store" rather than a CRAFT store but I have made some pretty cool things! I can't wait to see how these turn out! I was thinking it might be cute to use really small bags and put your monogram on them or something cute - that way you could use lots of them and they wouldn't take up the entire table!

 

Get to crafting and we will wait to see how you do!

I have to admit I don't quite get it. Where do you put the vellum and why areyou printing on it? Does the name show up in a shadow - I am very confused! (Sorry). I'm usually pretty good with this stuff but my mind has been blown!

OK, so I decided to make luminarias for Thanksgiving as my trial run. I've learned a few things:

 

1. My printer does not like vellum & is in need of a new color cartridge.

2. Getting stuff centered properly in word is a challenge

3. Spray adhsive really is sticky!

4. It's good to just mess around no matter how lame you think your first crafting attempt is.

5. Definitely invest in a paper cutter if you plan to do anything like this.

 

I glued some ribbon to one of the trials just for fun...
