A Very Simple Project Day...


My daughter and I are in a monthly cottage style/junk/antique sale next month, so I am starting to work on a few projects!  We have lots of little goodies for artwork, scrapbooking, and altered art that we specialize in, and decided to find a decorative way to sell them that would allow for a nice display in our area as well as in someone's studio.  I had a lot of little glass bottles from a garage sale, in storage and decided to use them.

After a good washing in the dishwasher, they were sparkling and ready to use.  I gathered together old cards and paper, keys, game pieces, spools, letters, etc, and set down to make some simple tags to tie on the filled jars with hemp cord.
 
  
  
  
  
  
  
 

I thought they had a nice, simple graphic look.  Next, I am going to try decoupaging and altering some of the bottles- if they turn out, I'll post on that later!
Until next time...
Linda
