Little glass jars
Since ‘good crafting stuff’ has been harder to find at the dollar store, I’ve been looking at the craft stores a little more. Found these cute little glass bottles at Michael’s.
On these I used some wired tissue paper ribbon. Hard to work with. Liked the prints on them but NOT working with the wire. And the wire made it tear really easily if you tried to make a bow out if it. Lesson learned. Wired tissue ribbon LOOKS cool, but it’s JUST for looks!
For most of the rest of these, I hand stamped tea stained paper.
The old yellowed book pages I used as the background on these three bottles was VERY brittle. Even just applying glue to them caused them to tear. My remedy: Took them outside and sprayed them with a couple of quick coats of clear spray on varnish! Still had to handle it very carefully, but it made it strong enough to glue in place.
More of my favorite papers with a snippet of old dictionary page sandwiched between.
More of the writing scrapbook papers, and a paper repro clock face (from a booklet of such assorted things)
