Lighted glass blocks


I have been working on Christmas gifts. I just wanted to show some I finished all but the bow. I used my cricut explore to cut cricut brand midnight vinyl. I had an issue with the explore cutting too deep, even though I had set it on custom and then cricut brand chalkboard vinyl. I switched over to cricut brand printable vinyl setting and that worked like a charm. It didn't mess up my image. I am very happy I waited to make sure it was cutting like I wanted before I went off to work on something else. The explore cut through the vinyl carrier on the first block:
The vinyl still turned out brilliantly. I got this image from a Facebook group. It didn't look like anything until you put it on the block. This next block's design is a Teresa Collins Dec 25th image from the subscription. I added a circle that I sliced in design studios for the eye. I just felt like it needed an eye. My aunt is really into cardinals for Christmas decorations. I hope she loves it. I had some sir bubbles I'll have to tackle later. But,I thought it turned out well. 
my last design I believe is a svg cut. I think it's my favorite so far. All designs were cut at 7x 7 but I think 6 would be a better size since some over lapped. 
Thank you for stopping by. Special thanks to Sarah who first showed these to me.
