(PICTURE HEAVY POST..please click on each to enlarge)

I altered a whiskey bottle ...yahh baby ! Jack Daniels it is ! :P ( Well, in case you are wondering.. "I am not an alcoholic..on a serious note,a little at times though :D " ,so this was collected  from a friend's to-be-thrown junks :P ) . I incorporated my favourite vintage style with a little cottage shabby chic touch in the ice-cream spoon.

Before altering :

After altering: 

I distressed the edges of the spoon with walnut stain ink pad to give it some effect.

I added a layer of mod podge over the draped pp around the bottle and embellished them .

 And voila.....turned the bottle into a message holder !!! Isn't it cute ?

I have recently become Prima-holic, purchased a whole lot of their flowers, paperpads ,so I ended up making a pretty box for the message holder. and It has got a smart pocket for tags too.

 It turned out beautifully.What a great effect..looks vintage and worn, just how I love it! What do you think about it?

   Supplies : 

  • Card stock - DIY shop collection paperpad and For the recorde 2
  • Stamp sets - kaisercraft (decorative tape pieces)
  • Versafine ink pad - black
  • Distress ink pad - Walnut stain
  • Distress stain - Vintage photo
  • pendants and charms - Local store and crafterscorner
  • Seam binding and twine - the ribbon reel

I hope you all have a wonderful crafty weekend.
