Glass Geography/Cartography & Candleholder

I was making a project I swore I wouldn't make again and when I was pawing through the tumbled craft glass, state shapes started jumping out at me all over the place.  Sure the square glass pieces were easy for states like Kansas, Colorado, the Dakotas, etc. 

I thought the top left looked like the USA, even though I had to add a little chip to make Florida.  The blue piece looked like New York and I had to add another chip for Long Island.  Next is Idaho.  The dark green sort of looks like Mississippi or Alabama, or a hybrid of the 2.  The second row are California and Nevada....or a real skinny British Columbia & Alberta.  Next is Maine that was missing it's far eastern part so I added a chip there too.  Vermont & New Hampshire fit as perfectly as the actual state borders.  The dark brown piece is a tiny Ohio.

This is what I said I'd never make again.
