It's Friday, and inspiration week over at Polkadoodles for our Challenge - Recycle It.
I so had to use these empty bottles! They used to hold little paper flowers.
After removing all the labels, I then put the bottles in the dishwasher to sterilise them! And what better way to reuse them, than to fill them with lovely treats. These will be great stocking fillers for my girls. Shhhh, don't tell them :-)
I used Design sheets from the fabulous Work and Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs CD collection. These design sheets are great, as they have all the elements altogether, so things can be put together quickly and easily.
Rudolph as been decoupaged to add some depth. I did add some sparkle to his nose and bell :-)
I firstly wrapped each bottle with papers from the CD, then added elements from the Design Sheets.
I used my Sakura Gelly roll pen, to add some sparkle to the sleigh and Rudolphs nose. Difficult to see in the photo though.
I made some little 1.5" rosettes, out of papers from the CD, and added these to the bottle tops, along with some Christmas ribbon around the edges.
Of course I had to add some sparkly ribbon around the necks of the bottles too!
I filled them up with wonderful Christmas crunchy eggs, and some mini fruit candies.
I am so glad I was able to use up these bottles and I'm sure the girls will enjoy their Candy :-)
You have until Friday 14th Nov, noon GMT, to get in your entries. Doesn't have to be Christmas, just recycle something. Could be ribbon off a package, sweet wrappers or something you have had laying around for a while just waiting for the right crafty project.
This is the collection I used.
