To the Great Beyond….

 

I just love how crafters inspire each other. I got the idea for this project from Trina Struckman from one of the papercraft groups I’m in on Facebook. She made a gorgeous version of the Weihnachtsglocke (Christmas Bell) from Sunshine Hobby Works. When I saw her post, I didn’t see the bells – I saw something completely different.

Do you remember the 1994 movie Stargate? I think it inspired a TV-series among other stuff? Anyways….it’s about this ancient ring-shaped device that creates a wormhole enabling travel to a similar device elsewhere in the universe. Now THAT was what I saw 😀

I made this from Granite AC Cardstock, grey Pearl cardstock and some glitter paper in Black. I used glow-in-the-dark vinyl for the signs and gold vinyl for the arrows.

Inside I added two rows of LED strips for light.

It was so much fun to make and all I really did was leaving out the bells.

It looks cool in the dark too 🙂

I think it will be a hit next weekend when my son has kids from his class over for a Birthday party since he requested a space/Halloween theme 😀

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of my wacky idea 😀
