1. Use a black Sharpie marker to sketch a cupcake design onto the 6" clear glass base. If needed, sketch design on a piece of paper prior to tracing design onto glass.
2. Use a Wheel Mosaic Cutter to nip Medium Blue and Turquoise Blue Opalescent Strips into 3" pieces. Nip the corners off one end of each strip to create a point.
3. Use pinpoints of Elmer's Clear Gel Glue to adhere each strip to create the striped cupcake base.
4. Use your fingers to break a glass Stringer into several smaller pieces. Attach pieces with pinpoints of glue along the icing outline of the cupcake.
5. Use a spoon to fill in the remaining area of the icing with medium Sunflower Opalescent Frit.
6. Add Red Opalescent Bits to the cupcake as cherries. Add stems, if desired, with small Stringer pieces.
7. Add sprinkles to the cupcake icing with an assortment of Stringer pieces and nipped scrap glass pieces.
8. Lightly spritz project with hairspray to secure frit and other glass components in place.
9. Accent the project border with small Stringer pieces, attached with pinpoints of glue. Allow project to dry completely.
