Cocoa Test Tube Holder Tutorial - Lisa Somerville
A few years ago I had stumbled across Test Tubes at my local craft store and thought they'd be fun to use in various projects. It all started out with a simple Single Test Tube Holder that I created, then came the Double, Triple and Quad Holders (all templates are available on my blog sidebar). Over the years, I've altered my patterns for various images I wanted to incorporate with the holders.
The fab Van Houten's Cocoa image is from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder Plate, and I thought it would would perfectly with the Test Tubes. I did have to create a new pattern to accommodate the larger ATC sized image.
