Hi All. I am finding it hard to get back into any sort of routine since we came back home and especially as there is so much wonderful tennis on the television and I just love watching sport. Hope you will enjoy your day and thank you for finding time to visit Jumbled Crafts.
I have had an altered project ready for a few weeks but never posted it so I thought I would enter it at Rhedd's Creative Spirit as the theme there is always to alter something.
This is what I made
I started out with three empty plastic, bath soak bottles
I made a mark on them all at the depth I wanted my finished box
Then these were stuck together
Covered in some lace-which is why I wanted them to be the size I made them as I have quite a bit of this lace. I then stamped some white ribbon to use as a top border. This may have looked better if I had threaded it through the holes.
The bits of the bottle that were left I cut up and embossed in folders then I used the Tattered Flowers die to cut flower shapes
These I painted with emulsion paint and dabbed on gold Glimmer Mist. The leaves are silk and cut from one of my flower arrangements. Poor things I will have to replace some of the flower arrangements soon as I keep pinching things from them
So here is my finished piece and it is a handy holder for some of my scissors. Just need one more empty bottle to make another set
Have a great day all
Love Chrissie x
