Gorjuss plonk!!

Warning...this post may be long as I'm sooooo excited about this project!

and here it is.......an altered bottle of wine!!! I have made it for my Brother's girlfriend as she cuts my son's hair but won't take any money so usually get her some wine so she can't refuse! The reason I'm so excited about it though is becuase I made my own paper using Magnolia's new year swirl stamp and a flower stamp with Qchalks and silver embossing. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out. Here is a close up of it........

One of the other reasons is the pearly pink "netting" behind the flower.......you'll never guess what this is made from.......I cut up one of those net bags you get with your washing tablets and covered it in pearlescent pink glue! LOL I think it looks great and I think it will be appearing in different colours on more of my projects!

I also made a bottle "cuff" and gift tag which is attached to the top with a flower.


Hope you like it!!! Trouble is I'm loving it so much I'm loath to give it away now! Sorry if I've bored you! x

This is a wonderful idea. So much work has gone into it, no wonder she loved it. I love the tip about the washing tablet bag too. Debs x
