Now on to my project!!
I purchased this glass block at Michaels about a month ago and I have had a total block (no pun intended) on what Halloween image to put on it. Finally, I was looking through my gypsy for something else and came across this image on Holiday Cakes.
I put the layers of the haunted house on my mat sized at 7 inches. I put the witch (sized at 1 inch) and the bat (sized at .65 inch) from Happy Hauntings on my mat. I put the bat and witch on the same half of the mat as the black layer of the house.
I put black and yellow vinyl on my mat. I set my cricut at 3-3-3, Pressure 3, Speed 3 and Blade Depth 3. This gives a nice kiss cut. It will cut through the vinyl only, not the paper backing.
I take my dental tool and pull (weed) away the extra pieces. It is helpful to roll up the extra vinyl as you peel it off so it doesn't stick to your project pieces.
Then you weed out the inner cuts (door, windows, etc.). I take clear contact paper cut to size and de-stick it a bit by sticking it on my pants. Then I smooth it over my image. I want to stick my black vinyl on top of the yellow layer first.
I use my scraper tool to burnish the vinyl on my contact paper.
I start at one corner and peel it up. Then I place it over the yellow piece.
Here are the two layers on the glass.
I added ribbon around the edge of the block.
I put the bat and witch on the block. I put white tulle and a set of 35 white lights (found at Hobby Lobby) inside the block.
Here is my block all lit up. The stand also came from Hobby Lobby.
