Christmas Cocktail Brolly



The theme at this weeks's wednesday stamper is Umbrella. This immediatly made me think of those little umbrella's you get in cocktails. As we are coming up to christmas I thought it would be nice to do a festive version, which then also led me to think about using them for the place settings at the christmas table. (last year I made wine glass charms)

so these were easy peasy. cut a circle of card, cut a wedge out. colour with distress inks, stamp holly, name, add some red glitter glue and some moonglow spritz, then edge with gold acrylic paint. when it is dry (or nearly dry in my case, ahem!) glue edges together and glue a cocktail stick in place. unfortunately I couldn't find any cocktail sticks. I'm sure we have some, we can't have used them up, we don't have cheese and pineapple on sticks THAT often, lol. I reckon the children might have taken them to make something (where DO they get that from). So Anyway I used a lollipop stick instead (from those double lollies)
