Altered bottle of wine with a treasure inside...

Hi everyone. Hope you are all having a great day!

Today I wish to share with you all a altered work I did for my mum. She was invited to a 60-years birthday party to one of her friends, and she wished to give her money. And since "just money" was the main gift, she wanted to create a handmade card for her friend to put the money inside. But she run out of time and ideas, so I decided to help her out, and we went for the idea of an altered empty bottle of wine.

I used a 50 cl empty glass bottle (clear glass, wine bottle), and made sure to find one we still had the original cork lid to.

This is how I made it;

1. I used a long needle and fastened a approximately 60 cm long cord to it before I pressed it trough the cork and dragged the cord half way trough the cork.

2. I used "Documentary" Prima clear stamp and embossing pad, and stamped directly on the glass bottle. Added Ranger Distress Embossing powder (Tea Dye and Vintage Photo) and embossed the design on to the glass bottle.

3. Then I used a piece of Prima glittered chipboard as a front bottle medallion. Added Claudine Hellmuth Gesso on the whole center of the chipboard, and placed some small clock gears and a white old clock face on top of it and left it to dry.

4. A beautiful Prima branch with pearls (Holidays Lights - glitter Spay - pearls) was perfect for this project. Original it had orange, creamy and brownish colors, but  since we were going to add in Norwegian 200 NOK-money in the clear bottle and they are blue-green in colors, I decided to let the same colors be a "red line" trough the whole design so the money fit into the design better. So because of this, I used Ranger Alcohol Inks and painted approximately 1/3rd part of the pearls in a matching color.

5. Then I shaped the Prima Glitter Spray branch in desired shape and used a hot glue gun to glue it on to the bottle.

6. Back to the Prima glittered chipboard piece with Gesso which now probably have dried. I now used Tattered Angels glimmer mists and Ranger Alcohol inks and painted over (with a thin and soft paint brush) the gesso and on the chipboard to let the white gesso "float" into the design and transform the whole design to a color which match the rest of the project.

7. Then i glued on the chipboard to the bottle using a glue gun.

8. Next step was to curl the money into some small rolls and fasten to the bottom part of the cord which shall be on the inside of the bottle. Make sure to leave some centimeters with extra cord also below the money to fasten a kind of an anchor in. I used a beautiful Prima metal birdcage from the collection Vintage Trinkets; - perfect in size and shape and weight for this.

9. Now create a personal tag to add on the top part of the cord, to add a personal message on. I used a Donna Downey paper tag which I distressed and added a Prima flowers on. "For you" on the front of the tag and with a personal message on the backside.

10. I also added a Prima Vintage Trinket to the tag for an extra little touch.

Here are some close-ups;

The top of the bottle, a tag with a personal message.

The front of the bottle, with small details as old little clock gears and clock face with tiny clock hands. You can also see the pearls with bluish alcohol inks on.

 Here you can see the cord with the money inside, and the little birdcage hanging as a anchor in the bottom.

Here the Prima Vintage Trinkets bird cage shows inside of the bottle, as a cute little anchor holding the cord with money on a straight line.

That's all. This one is actually easy to make, and so fun to give away to someone special. A perfect "green project" personal gift and card in one! Good luck making your own beautiful sample, and please post a link below and share with me when you have! Will love to see it! :O)

Thank you for dropping buy, appreciate your visit, and wish you all a wonderful weekend!
