Today’s the first Monday of the month time for the Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop.
The Theme this month is Handmade Gift Ideas. (don’t forget to hop)
My project today is a fun, quick & easy project that you can make in minutes.
This would make a great last minute gift.
I started with a narrow glass bottle that has a fairly long straight section.
Wrap the bottle with Washi Tape. Choose two patterns or more.
Having a straight section is important to getting the washi tape on evenly.
You can smooth out any wrinkles in the tape with your thumb nail or a bone folder.
I added a little more detail around the neck of the bottle with some ribbon and a button.
I picked up the ribbon this Spring at The Paper Source in Indianapolis. (I’ll be hoarding this)
I glued the button onto a Memo Pin* from Tim Holtz and stuck into the ribbon.
Grab a flower from the garden and your ready to go. It really is that easy.
Just a note in case you’re wondering:
The tape on the vase, just like the flower won’t last for ever. It’s just pretty.
