Pretty Paper Bowls

Here's a great idea for a kid's party.  These bowls are easy and worry-free.  You don't have to worry about any one breaking anything and having to buy a whole load of paper bowls that you'll probably never use again.

Wineglass Candle Lamp

I'm in love with this idea from  I think this would be a great gift for many!

1. First gather your supplies:
8.5" x 11" Vellum (1 sheet per lamp)
Scoring Tool or Pencil
Strong Adhesive (Glossy Accents,E6000)
Wine Glass
Tealight (battery powered is safest)
Lampshade template

And here's the finished Wineglass Candle Lamp! If you click on the pics, they'll be larger for a better view. Be sure to share yours with us here in the comments or on Splitcoast Stampers. ;)

Have a great weekend y'all and be sure to stop back tomorrow for Stampbook Saturday.
