I began with an empty salad dressing bottle,
pages from an old book,
and ModPodge (MP).
I covered the bottle with MP using a paintbrush, placed book pages over the wet MP,
and covered the pages with more MP.
I continued to place pages on the bottle,
twisting, turning and overlapping them until I was satisfied.
Then I covered the whole thing once more with MP and let it dry.
A black ribbon from an old pair of drawstring-waisted shorts made a cute bow.Then I made some flowers with more pages using this tutorial, attached them to some skewers hanging around in my kitchen drawer,
and placed them in the vase for a finished bouquet that you never have to water.
Hmmmmm, Christmas gifts?
Maybe I'll show you what I did with the cover of the book next time!
