At the time I didn't really pay much attention to my purchase. I loosely discussed etching it with cute little gingerbread motifs, but never got round to it (I will be more organised next year!). When I was pulling out my glass jars for jam making last week, I suddenly remembered I had it. Unfortunately it was too late to try out something elaborate with glass etching as I currently have a gazillion other Christmas present crafts that I am rushing to complete. I planned to just give it a thorough scrub and fill it with an edible gift.
A few weeks ago, I planned to make some vinyl snowflake nail decals to accompany some pretty Gosh nail varnish and a file, a sweet mini nail set for some of my girly friends. The snowflakes cut beautifully, and I excitedly set my cameo to cut out 12 sets. Stupidly I didn't check the snowflake size against my own nails, trying them, I realized they were ever so slightly too big! A huge waste of expensive vinyl and time. I do hate to throw anything away (secret hoarder tendencies) and so they were chucked back in the drawer with the idea that they would come in handy for something.
Well, I had the brain wave of combining the two and I am very happy with the results!
