This second version is more like how I envision a pirate sword, very swash-buckling in my mind. I designed the handle with my Silhouette machine, the long skinny tubes called "Tube- Magic Wand" and some gold cardstock. Aaaarr!
I love my Silhouette, it is a fabulous machine and has software anyone can use.
Please feel free to leave comments, I love to hear what others think.
