sweets this is so beautiful!! i really love it! i have two questions:
you said you used sequins. i thought sequins were round and had a little tiny hole in them? they make sequins shaped like other things now? i'm sorry if this is a stupid question, maybe ui've just been living under a rock since the eighties, but i don't know what these are. are they flat or round on the back?
also, the second is more of a comment than question, please do let us know if stifflersmom tells you where she got the tins - i'd love to try this (when i'm not busy with shrinky dinks!!)
did you ever try the hokusai wave in beads?
*gasp* Why didn't anyone tell me that I'm a doofus by now? They aren't sequins, they are rhinestones! Eek! I'll edit the Subject line right now! So many shiny objects!! My mind thought one thing & my fingers typed another.
Anywho... they are rhinestones. The ones that I used weren't flat on the back. I bought a bunch of them a while ago & thought I should start using them...
Stifflersmom can't remember for sure where she got those specific tins (it was quuiiite a while ago), but she thinks it may have been Oriental Trading Company. So I looked and found these... tins
. They look EXACTLY the same, so I'm hoping they have the same thick lids.
If not, I'm sure I can use them as gift boxes and for other crafty endeavors.
YES! I did the wave! The first one I gave away to a friend, like, 30 minutes after it came out of the oven. I didn't like it that much, but she was going crazy over it, so I gave it to her (no pictures, I was sad about it). But I started another one using more transparent beads that I think I'll like a lot more.
