Have been busy making altered Starbucks frappuccino bottles (thank you, Tanya!) for my off to college kid. I was planning on altering the cardboard container, but someone threw it away before I could save its life, so I've done two bottles now, and will send her two bottles later.
First up is a bottle of sunflower seeds. I used microbeads adhered in glossy accents for the flower center and found a smiling sun charm in my button stash. There is a tag on the back that says "Ranch Covered Seeds of Wisdom." Maybe they'll work if I label them that way. ;)
Next up is a bottle of pistachios. The heart is from Love Struck and the peanut is from Create A Critter. I love this lacy heart cut - and the little mulberry paper flower tucked into the top hat. He is one dashing nut.
And in case she gets tired of nuts, I covered this chocolate bar for her. I stamped the "You're So Special" onto white cardstock and inked it up a little. Then I used Love Struck again for the heart border the lips. The SWAK is from Jubilee.
Tucked all this stuff into a box along with a few other goodies and sent it off yesterday. She misses her weekly mail call since I have fallen off the craft wagon.
