Here is Christmas 2012 bottled up permanently!
My idea for capturing a holiday works for any special occasion!
A few years ago I started capturing Christmas in vials because I wanted to keep the holiday alive longer than December. I always have little piles of leftovers and things that look like Christmas on my table. Instead of throwing them away, I add them to a little dish to use up in a project like this one.
In this vial I have a little snipping from a tiny Christmas tree, red glass beads, sequins and a tiny bit of red thread.
I added Envirotex Lite to my vial. I measure to see if the resin I pour in the vial leaves me enough room to still close it with my cork stopper. It takes a few minutes for the resin to settle to the bottom of the vial.
This is the one time I like bubbles in my resin and encourage them by whipping my resin longer. My vial will look like it is filled with water.
