DIY Easy Stained Glass Window Gingerbread Cookies Tutorial from La Vie en Rose here. Auna used hard candies for the “stained glass”. I have also used this technique for my gingerbread houses’ windows and it works beautifully.
truebluemeandyou: As I said on my FB page - these are easy and “how did she/he do it” cookies.

Cd/DVD shards are sharp, I don’t know if I would want to wear them.
I’d probably use copper foil tape on the pieces (used to tape around and solder stained glass). It would also give them a finished look :) This is one example of it here (chosen for photo), but any crafts’ store should have this tape for stained glass use and other uses.
faysbook reblogged your photo: truebluemeandyou: DIY Mirrored Collar Using CDs….
Oh my goshhhhhh.
I know. This I want to try conservatively first to see if it looks as good as it does in the photo. Maybe even cut up a few pieces, make a hole in the pieces, attach jump rings and make a charm-like bracelet.
EDIT: Thanks to the comment by wittywallflower, I was rethinking the bracelet idea and came up with this on another reply: I’d probably use copper foil tape on the pieces (used to tape around and solder stained glass).

I was amazed by the results achieved with alcohol ink on tiles and then even more happy to see the results on glass. DIY Alcohol Ink Faux Stained Glass tutorial from the screaming sardine here. You may remember that I earlier posted about alcohol ink tiles here. The link to the tile tutorial from artsyville here. This is how the stained glass look was achieved:
I cleaned the glass off first with rubbing alcohol. Then I added a drop or two of alcohol ink at a time and then sprooshed it with the canned air.
