Here is my take on the lighted glass gift packages...







They were SO easy to make, and I have some ideas on how to do them differently next year...

beautiful!!  Where did you buy your glass drill bit?  I was thinking of looking at Lowe's.  Just today, I bought some ribbon on clearance at JoAnn's.  I bought some of the glass at Lowe's.  How did you learn to tie your bows?  I bought some lights on clearance at hobby lobby.

Thanks all! It was really simple... I got the drill bit at Lowe's, it came in a kit with a few others for like 12ish dollars and I used the largest one... It's not a gift inside, it's a strand of lights to be used as a lamp/decoration.  They're very simple to do... try them! :-)
I had no idea how to do the bows... I just wrapped the ribbon around and used a lot of hot glue.  I put those three little ornament balls on the top to kind of disguise the faked ribbon making :-p

what a great bow for just "wrapping around."  I'd probably make a mess.  Has anyone used any sort of bow maker?  thanks.  catdaddytn

Hi,  My DH has been drilling and drilling.  He just can't get the hole in the glass.  I bought a drill piece at Lowe's that was supposed to handle the job, but no luck.  My DH went to buy another drill thing and it still doesn't work.  There's no way I can make alot of these. Any tips?  thanks.  catdaddytn
