Altered bottle

When I saw that polkadoodle had a challenge for anything but a card I new this bottle would come in handy. This bottle originally held low fat salad dressing and had been kicking about the kitchen for some time.
I filled it with a packet of liquorice allsorts( not quite as I ate four) and edged the cap with spotted ribbon. I cut three shapes from my nestie dies on my wizard cutter and glued them together. I added a piece of spotted ribbon across the front before sticking the whole thing in the indent on the front of the bottle. I printed and cut out a stitched flower from the Sugar birdies CD. I punched two small holes in the middle and added a slither of black card knotted through the holes. I then added a piece of spotted ribbon around the neck of the bottle. I printed a circle greeting taken from the Candy doodles CD and punched two holes in the centre. I pushed through a slither of black card and knotted it in the centre. This circle I glued to the ribbon to finish off. I really enjoyed making this and it turned out better than I thought it would. To see all the samples for the challenge pop over to this site.

Great idea Shirley. I always pop mine in the recycling, but I will look at my bottles in a different light from now on. Thanks for joining in at Polkadoodles.

Hehehehe! I love things like this! I'm afraid that if it was me that was making it, I'd have run out of sweets before I'd finished! Thanks for entering the Polkadoodle Challenge - hope you can join us again next week!

I love how you have tied the colours together and used the black...really matches the liquorice.
