Well, actually ‘recycle’ to treasure! Because we would never THROW away a glass bottle. It goes to the recycle station, along with about 70% of the rest of our ‘trash’.
These bottles contained some fruit flavored carbonated beverages from France, so I decided to save them.
Waited until last week to make them because I usually make labels for stuff like this on my computer, and print them up. Alas, my printer did not get re-installed after the recent CRASH, and I have been unsuccessful in doing so myself. So I had to make the labels ‘the old fashioned way’ (as you can probably tell by the smudge!)
I rifled through my multitude of rubber stamps and found the fancy ‘love’ stamp. Used 2 different sizes of alphabet stamps for the rest of the label. Stained the edges with ‘my’ grubby stain recipe (available to purchase in my etsy shop) First a layer of old sheet music, then the label I stamped. The cotton trim along the bottom came already printed (AND is also for sale in my etsy shop!)
Around the necks, I glued a strip of paper, wrapped a lot of string, then tied on a little reproduction skeleton key.
Simple as that!
