July Really Reasonable Ribbon Hop!

Win a Die here!

If you get lost on the way, head back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings blog to get back on track! 

  When you're through checking out my project, head toward the fabulous Jeanne's blog and you're almost at the end of the hop!   Now, be sure to leave some love at all the stops along the way. Your comments are most appreciated not to mention the chance to win club ribbons of your own!

 Now, let's get to it!  You know when you are in the store shopping for groceries and there is an isle that has been marked "70% off all ????? gifts" ?  That's the isle where even though the holiday has passed, not all of their merchandise was purchased and instead of storing it they mark it down to get rid of it?  Well, that's what happened with today's project.

I thought to myself,. . .  self . . . you could totally make that cute little Valentines necklace bottle into something for just about any occasion with the right ribbons and paper products!  lol!  So I bought it for about $1.49 and off it went into the now large box of "TO BE ALTERED" stuff.  

After removing the label and tag, I replace them with some of this months bright and vibrant club ribbons!  Add the country heart tag (this little bit of ink is fabby!)  I moved the crystal heart up a bit to add the Wedding Dress die cut to the lower right of the bottle and added some frill at the top.  The little note card as created with the same design and the edges were rounded!  That's it!  

I hope you too are inspired to do a bit of sale shopping?  You never know when you can make it the perfect gift!
