And the Award goes to...

Hi, My name is Jess and I am addicted to making tiny trophies.  I went to the store to buy a single package of these babies and went back to buy the rest the next day.  They are so fun to alter.  Since they are tiny(just two inches high) they work up quickly too.


I made this one for me.  I will be 37 this year.  I am determined to make it my best year yet.  

After I posted a picture  of my first trophy a friend said it should have been a 57 since that's how old she would be this year.  This will be mailed out to her.  

I am not a big gold crafter.  I tend to stay in the silver family.  I figured I should challenge myself and this was the result.  It is one of my favorites.  

It's time for Easter Bunnies!  He has a tiny pom pom tail.  He's adorable.  

So many of my crafts have birds on them.  This tiny guy is just right on here. 


Ah, everyone has a know it all in their life.  Give them a trophy.  

This gypsy is adorned with a piece of a vintage earring.  

This guy has already been sent off to its forever home.  I can see tons of creepy possibilities for Halloween with these trophies.  


Each trophy is a little different.  I was experimenting with different mixtures of alcohols inks, different levels of roughing up the surface(steel wool worked best), and different ways to fill them up.  
What have you been crafting?

    1. Thank you Joan. I still have a few months before I hit 37, so I can work out the kinks before then ;)

  6. These are absolutely fabulous! I loved seeing so many different creations here. You did a remarkable job of thinking of so many ideas. Very inspiring! I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite here, but I did love the "Know it All Fairy." Thanks for thinking outside the box and for creating such unique trophies. I thoroughly enjoyed your post and am so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
