Title: Mosaic Names for Twins 1 Year
Post by: HSG on August 02, 2011 10:46:22 AM
Made these for my sisters twin grand babies 1 year birthday.

They are glass on glass (GOG) mosaic names. Used stained glass on plain clear 1/4 thick glass, squiggles from dollar store, two hands (on Cannon) and one glass flower (Kendal).
They are 12x5 each.

Finished:

Those are so pretty!  I love the squiggles every single time you use them, and this is a terrific application!  And the babies are too cute for words.

What wonderful heirloom pieces you have created for them! Love the translucent pieces you used to spell out the names!

They have the most perfect baby heads ever...just want to squeeze them! my word...

Awww! Thank you all!

The glass for the letters are those squiggles you get at the dollar stores.

Yes, the babies are quite adorable! They are walking now, and causing their mom and dad lots of trouble. ;)

These are great! I've seen those bags of glass pieces in the store and I never would have thought to use them this way! Brilliant!

Too cute! I love the handprint and flower details, didn't notice those the first time I saw this.

Thank you, Mare! :)

Kendal is a real girly baby and needed a flower. So I had to give Cannon something, and he loves affection so in came the hands. :)

So pretty! I'm not familiar with Squiggles, though. Maybe my dollar store doesn't have them or maybe I've just overlooked them.

Thanks!  :) You find them in the same place as the flat backed marbles. Usually in a mesh type bag.

I've never heard of squigglies, either, but love the idea of using them to make letters! And such cute babies they're going to!
