Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party!

Good morning!  It is the start of a new month and that means it is also time for the Crafty Secret's Challenge and linky party! This month's theme is to create an altered project or home decor piece.  
While cleaning my craft room, I found these cutie pie bottles.

I thought they would be super cute as a teacher gift filled with candy.
They were easy to make and really didn't take a whole heck of a lot of time!

So here is the scoop on how they were created. 
I printed papers from the Crafty Secret's Sewing Paper collection.  I cut them into one inch strips.
I printed flowers from the Sewing Images and Ephemera collection. They were printed at one inch.
I wanted to "frost" the bottoms of the bottles with glitter.  I "painted" on the glitter using glossy accents and sprinkling it with Tim Holtz Distress glitter.  

I then wrapped the paper around the bottle, added a bit of glue, and secured in place.

I cut my flower, inked the edges, tied some lace, and die cut a few leaves using a Spellbinder die.
They were adhered to the bottle. 
Here is one last look at the finished product. :)

These are so darling with the big button flowers and the glittered lower edge. I really like how that turned out and must remember it. I have some bottles I've been saving. It's like painting with glitter. You're so clever, especially when it comes to glitter!
