Happy Happy Wednesday Crafty Peeps! I hope your week has been crafty and productive so far. As for My Creative Time and Design Team Members, we have been having a Blast, playing with everything from the 24th edition release. I cannot wait until all of you start playing with the new stamps and dies too! Ok, for today's project we are to create a project other than a layout or card. I love... love... love 3-D Wednesdays because it gives me a chance to create home decor or gifts for my loved ones and friends. I try to use any recycled objects I have put away for a special creation. For today, I used a pyrex test tube ($.25) that I purchased at a huge flea market here in South Texas. Here are some shots of my project:
My Mom likes to collect different mini vases to put flowers next to My Dad's Urn. So, when I saw these Pyrex test tubes, I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them.
I added clear marbles in the tubes for dimension and to somewhat hide the flower stem.
I loved how I distressed the sentiment and tag. I wanted an aged look to it. The heart charm gives the tag an antique look also. A simple yet bright color bow was tied around the tube.
I used a styrofoam circle for the base. Covered it with faux wood grain pattern paper. Distressed the edges with brown fluid chalk. Used an Xacto knife to cut a circle for the tube to fit in the center. Adhered it with hot glue. Die cut some beautiful Butterflies with different scraps of pattern paper.
This beautiful Rose came from one of my rose bushes. It was another Inspiration for my project today. I love...love...love bringing my garden indoors. It reminds me of why I LOVE being outdoors during Spring.
