I am still experimenting with glass slide Christmas tree decorations. For these I used Inkssentials 2in X 2in Clear Memory Glass Slides.
I had a few left over from many moons ago but didn’t think I would be able to get any more, however, after a bit of a search and a wait, I finally got two more boxes from Country View Crafts, but I have still to find any of the smaller 1.5 x 1.5in slides, I have a feeling that trying to find them may be a fools errand.
I bought a selection of wide lace for about 89p a bundle and experimented with which would look best in the square slides, cutting it to size and sandwiching it between two slides with a sprinkling of iridescent micro glitter.
Then I attached a silver bail to the top of the square using E6000 glue for a strong, secure bond, leaving it to set for 24 hours plus. With careful twiddling with a needle it was possible to remove any excess glue.
…… but alas despite applying an awful lot of pressure, they just would not adhere to the glass, but not to be beaten, I simply cut a section of the rub on out and glued it onto the glass instead with Ranger Glossy Accents, as I knew it would dry clear.
I used E6000 again to glue on silver filigree wrap connectors (ordered from eBay/China) on the bottom of each slide.
I cut through the centre divider at the bottom of each connector so that I could add a bead allowing it to hang exactly in the middle.
I then added a few tiny blue and clear flat backed gems here and there on the galss. When the E6000 on the connectors had set I bent the edges round the edge of the slides for a neater look.
