I whipped this block up quickly just before guests arrived for a cocktail party. I used the Silhouette file called retro girl and then chose Lobster font for my text. This was cut with my Cameo beautifully, without snags, which made weeding easy. I used H&H vinyl. Glue dots were used to secure the translucent vellum to the inside of the 8 inch block and they are barely noticeable. While I could place a small set of lights inside, I found it easier to just place the block in front is a small lamp I keep on my baker's rack. This looked great sitting next to pretty martini glasses and the glow reminded me of a bar sign. I noticed a few bubbles in the retro girls but a warm blow dryer, needle prick and Popsicle stick burnishing should take care of that.

We only have a few homes in our subdivision, sitting on 4+ acre lots. Too much distance for trick or treaters, and so for several years I have made up treat packages to deliver to the neighborhood families. I understand this is now a much anticipated tradition for the kids around here- Treats from "Miss Gina".
These turned out so cute that they just may be repeated next year !
