Just 5 Minutes to Spare

If you’ve got 5 minutes
to spare, then I have a
sweet little project for you.

It’ll probably take you longer
to read this post than to
create the project!

You could use any kind of paper,
but I love this line
of scrapbook paper by Tim Holtz,
in his idea-ology collection called,
“Lost & Found”.
It was priced $14.99 for a 36 double-sided
pages, but of course I used my
40% off coupon to buy it.


He’s captured the beauty
of real antique treasures and
the colors are so vivid.

I bought it because
I had a specific project in mind
that I needed one of the pages for
{which you’ll learn about soon!},
but even though it was the wee hours of the morning,
I just had to tinker around with
some of this paper a little bit.

I had just drank the contents
of a cute little glass bottle
{sshhhh…it was a small bottle}
and was about to throw it away,
but as I thumbed through
the papers, I realized some of the
2 x 2 “snippets” images would be the perfect
size for the bottle I had just emptied.

This page shows antique photos
taken in a photo booth – really charming!

Okay – here’s the 5 minute instructions:
1) cut out your image –
{you could use real vintage papers, but
I recommend selecting paper that doesn’t
have an image on the back side or it may show through}
2) singe the edges just slightly for a tattered look
3) paint some Elmer’s on the back of the paper and
stick it on the bottle
4) use a damp rag to wipe off any glue on the bottle
5)  Fill with water & your favorite flowers


It’s a great excuse to go
buy some fresh-cut flowers too!

Have a blessed day!
