Tilda Under Glass

I’ve made a little project using an old bell I found at a thrift store …
P1060015
 
I think they now call it “Re-purposing” when you take something you might throw away & turn it into something useful. I stamped mini “Tilda as Christmas Angel” & cut her out with a doohickey tag die I got from Diana at Magnolia-licious … Isn’t she just adorable !!! Since the glass bell didn’t have a bottom I found a jar lid that fit perfectly, filled the lid with Flower Soft & put the bell on top of the lid.
 P1060014  P1060013
I slid some pretty gold trimmed ribbon through the sentiment & glued it to the lid.
P1060009 P1060012
Wrapped the same ribbon around the top & tied a bow with bells hanging from it.
I’d like to thank my husband for having the patience to take me to Hobby Lobby & spend so much time there looking & helping me find little bells in gold, silver & red … I was looking for TINY little copper colored bells which we never found but he called me 3 times on my cell phone to say “Janie, come over I found a Bonanza” … They had bells in a dozen different places. Not many men would take the time to do these small things that make a women happy. He’s a keeper. The thrift store he didn’t enjoy so much. He thought it was JUNK I thought it was full of TREASURES !!!
Tilda was colored with Copics
