Valentine Cupids

I bought a box of six Fontanini Angels (two of each kind) a few months back, I immediately thought of turning them into little Valentine Cupids!
I added some iridescent glitter to the wings and let that dry...
Next, I added fine gold glitter to each piece of the cherubs sash and let that dry. I then made each one a quiver covered in red glitter and added two arrows with each tip covered in pink fine glitter to finish them off.
Lastly, I added a ribbon hanger to each one before wrapping them up.

The photos make these little cupids covered in glitter to appear a little garish--- but in person they are not SO brash. I have talked  a bunch of my friends into having a Valentines day swap... of sorts. Ok-ok-ok, its a party with presents, yes, that's how I presented it to them! *wink* There is a group of six of us that get together to craft and visit with each other a few times a month... so I thought it would be fun to craft for each other.
I have already informed them that we are going to be having a "Saint Patrick's day" party too... Why should kids have all the fun right?
big hugs,
Cheryl
