Here's a pretty one for your favorite rock collector.
First came some lovely glass stones.
Though the stones came with a sign that said they were just waiting to be painted,
I knew they begged something else.
I found just the thing.
We selected a stone,
and then found just the bit of paper for that particular shape and size.
Holding the stone carefully and firmly to the paper, I cut on an inward angle around the stone.
After carefully placing the stone down on the table, maintaining the same angle,
we brushed the paper with a glue/water mixture.
We placed the paper against the bottom of the stone, and worked it thoroughly around the stone, up the edges a bit,
and pressed firmly throughout the bottom of the stone.
So, so, so pretty.
And they feel as lovely as they look!
They could be made into magnets, or a lovely nature game... but for now they'll just sit on our nature table, being touched and admired.
