Martini Glasses

I have owned a book by Anna Corba for over a year now. It is full of so many great ideas on how to use paper. Most of the ideas use pages from books, I love that. I take it out once in a while to look at, but I have never made anything from it, until last night. I bought two martini glasses at Pier One for $2 each. Believe it or not the glasses at The Dollar Store were too fancy! So a few pages from a book, Mod Podge, pretty trim and black paint and I have finished two martini glasses.

I filled mine with candy, but how cute would they be in the bathroom with soaps? I already gave the red pom pom trimmed glass away today, filled with some Kisses of course. I am now down to one glass. So this week I will be back at Pier One to but two more. I think they will look better as a group rather than just one.

Please take a few Kisses. I made sure I found the kind that are fat and calorie free! So please, take a handful!

I am going to try and make at least one thing a week from this book. I love everything in it. It is time to get off the couch, stop cleaning and be creative! I will also give up making supper, food shopping and put of cleaning the basement! I know these are big sacrifices, but I am willing to do this. A girl has got to do, what a girl has got to do!

Those are adorable! I think I'll make them and use them for New Year's decorations. I wonder if they would be cute with tea lights in them?? Very cute!
