So I started out with this bottle of Foam Bath for my Off-The-Page
project commissioned by Yvonne Yam from Do More with Less -
for her 3rd free online workshop "Let's Get Trendy! 3"
which you can read about HERE and sign up for HERE.
You still have until the end of June to play along for prizes & see
many, many awesome examples based on 5 key trends at the moment!
1. Choose a nice, smooth bottle to begin with.
2. Peel off the label & remove any leftover residue
using thinners/turpentine/benzine or the like.
3. Choose some pretty paper to cover part
of your bottle with & measure, mark & cut.
4. Adhere using thick double-sided tape for extra strength.
5. Carefully wrap your paper around your bottle using the grid
lines on your cutting mat to guide you, to ensure that you're
staying straight & matching up when you reach the other side.
6. Now measure up another piece of paper against your first piece, then cut it down about 2 inches (10cm) narrower than your first piece but the same length as before.
7. Now take your prettiest punch & punch
both sides of your narrower paper.
8. Ink up the edges if desired.
9. Adhere double-sided tape all the
way across the length & the width.
10. Use a strip of Prima adhesive bling lace
to wrap around the middle of your papers.
11. Stand back & admire how your project thus far!
12. Add more adhesive bling to the top & the bottom of the paper.
13. Choose a Prima vine from your stash
(yup you really need these on hand at all times!)
& ink it up to bring out the colour (if desired).
14. Grab a piece of muslin from your pre-dyed muslin stash (or grab a piece then spray it with mist - spraying also with water to dilute & mix the colour to a soft shade) - do this over a big plastic shopping bag that you have cut down the side & bottom & opened up to provide a non-porous area to work, which is also easy to clean. Use your hands to squeeze the muslin & rub it into the ink droplets until you are happy with the colour distribution then dry off with a heat gun, holding the cloth with tweezers to avoid burning yourself.
15. Adhere your muslin using lots of hot glue underneath & an old credit card to push it down to stick (because if you use your fingers you will burn them!). Once you are happy with the "drape" of your muslin adhere your Prima vine using hot glue too.
16. Hot -glue all your embellishments on. I used a glass pebble & some Prima trinkets as well as some printed bunting cut from some Prima packaging, then seal your entire creation using a spray varnish (mine is glittery!!) or modge podge or gel medium, although a spray is obviously easier.
17. There you have it!
Enjoy & admire your creation!!
Then give it away to a good friend or let it
take up residence alongside your tub :)
It should be splash free now!
I used ALL Prima products on my bottle, except for the muslin,
which I bought at the pharmacy, & the mist which comes from
Studio Calico - Mister. Huey's (Cameo) & the glass pebble that
comes from a home store here, Mr. Price!
I mixed various Prima collections here, using paper from the new
Divine collection & 'Say-it-in-Crystals' from last year's
collections. With Prima product you can be sure that almost
everything matches with everything else, making your crafting life
that little bit easier, & all their products are top quality too.
However, of course, you can follow along & make
something similar with whatever you have on hand!
Thanks for stopping by & have a lovely week!
