Quilting and bottles and paper!

These are house blocks I made for a swap on one of my Yahoo groups. We have 18 swappers!

 This is an altered bottle I made for a challenge on my CDA group. I mod podged tissue on a Crown Royal bottle. A layer of red and a layer of purple. I then glues some old thick lace to it. I embellished with chain and charms and topped it with an old copper piece I had.
top of boxThis is a paper mache box I covered with Graphic 45's  A Secret Garden line. The flowers were a punchout sheet of same papers. I added wooden feet and mod podged it.


 A small altoid tin I covered with the same above papers.
inside of tinI added two minis I had to inside and also used mileflore beads with bead caps for feet.

This is a little scene I made using the above papers. I use two of the one with the girl for a stand out effect.

front of boxThis is a box I made from the Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary paper line. I embellished with black beads and black dazzle line stickers. The flowers are cut twice and raised with foam sticky squares.


front side of bookletThis is the little accordian book I made to go inside the box. There is room for pictures, journaling, etc. Also A Ladies Diary line.


Small bottles I made for the second part of the CDA challenge. These bottles range from 1" to 2". I used beads, dazzle sickers, glitters and charms.
