Upcycling


This is my second post today. Please scroll down for this morning's card.

I bought some new storage for my craft room yesterday. I have a variety of boxes and when I spotted these as a BOGOF offer in W H Smith I had to buy them as I wanted to reorganise some of my embellishments.

I spent a happy hour reorganising and ended up with several empty Prima bottles and jars which had previously held flowers. I decided to upcycle them and the picture at the top is the result. I have a few more left to do but I am hoping they will sell at craft fairs. I used burlap, string, ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and flowers. I am really pleased with the way they turned out.

The upcycled jars look so pretty, bet they will be snapped up at a fair.
And I'm sure your flowers are beautifully re-housed in those lovely storage boxes... I feel a trip to WH Smith coming on!
