Welcome to SPCC's first ever blog hop!
If you just happened upon my blog today,
the blog hop starts at SPCC, so go there to begin.
You should have arrived here from Robbyn's blog.
Our Blog Hop theme is "Going Green" and since St. Patrick's Day is this week, we thought we would throw a cool color combo in the mix: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White!
I just love this color combo, because it screams Spring!!
I decided to use a Starbuck's Mocha Frappuccino bottle for my recycled item. For the bottle cap, I edged it with ribbon and punched a circle out of Tempting Turquoise and a smaller one out of Green Galore, then ran both through my Big Shot, used chalk ink on the edges, and added several flowers together with a brad.
For the body of the bottle, I cut out two strips of cardstock, one slightly smaller than the other.
I then took a flower border punch to the Green Galore strip and punched both sides.
After adding the green strip to the Tempting Turquoise strip,
I inked the edges, added ribbon and then another flower!
This is a great storage bottle for my ribbon! I color coordinated my ribbon with my bottle!
Yes, I have lots of ribbon in my stash! LOL I just may start making more of the Ribbon Storage bottles for some other colors too!
