HAPPY THURSDAY! I don't really have a finished project today. I was just playing with some of my neglected craft supplies and made some things that I can use at a later date for a card or maybe some kind of keepsake project.

I used the Flourished dragonfly from LINDAY'S STAMP STUFF again because it is just so pretty. As I mentioned before, my top favorite reason I like digi stamps is because they can be made to order as far as size is concerned.

I saw this idea at a stamp show several years ago and I will post some how-to pics soon. I just got a new camera and haven't gotten a memory stick yet so I can only take two pictures at a time which isn't very good for a picture tutorial.

Briefly, I had some 1.5X1.5 inch memory glass and some 2X2inch acrylic squares in my stash. For the pink one on the left I just printed the image on patterned paper, sandwiched it between 2 of the memory glass squares and sealed it with 1/4" red tape. Finally, I dipped the edges in some pink microbeads. For the two on the right, I hauled out my sad and lonely alcohol inks. I used glossy cardstock and applied my alcohol inks along with some gold and copper from my leafing pens. I let it dry and then printed my dragonflies in corresponding sizes. I ran the leafing pens around the edges and then used red tape to attach the picture.

How cool are these cupcake wrappers that Lindsay has designed? How fun for a kids birthday party either decorated by you or by the kids themselves to keep their little bodies busy.

Check out the other design teams blogs for some inspiration and Lindsay's store to get your hands on some of those adorable wrappers.
