Altered Bottle

I made a little gift for a friend, and now that she's received it I can share it. First, I made a card. I loved the bird image, and saw the bold polka dot paper sitting on my scrap table. They were meant to be together.


I added a scrap of fabric and trim and typed a sentiment on my old typewriter.

I sent her a box full of goodies, including this altered bottle. I added a soldered top and band around the middle. Then I embellished with old sheet music, text, old lace, jewelry pieces, rusty key, and a jingle bell.



On the reverse side, I added an old crochet piece, tiny millinery flower, and cameo image.


I really liked how it turned out. The muted colors and simplicity of design seam to fit this old glass bottle perfectly.

Oooh, gorgeous card and gorgeous altered bottle, Erica! Love love that polka dotted paper and love the bird image on the card. The typewriter sentiment and bit of fabric are fabulous. And I just adore all the vintage goodies you used on the bottle. Your friend is very lucky, indeed. :)
