Cute Card Storage

I covered this lunch tin using the SCS tutorial and Stampin' Up!'s new Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper. It will be available, along with the cute matching Cherry stamp (which I used as a detail on the front of the tin) from the Tart and Tangy Stamp set, on March 1st. I love the fun and peppy colors!

One Floral "Vase" -Two views

I admit the rub-ons are a challenge for me, but this little old bottle will make a nice vase in my retro kitchen once I cover it with a sealer that will allow me to hand wash it. This was originally an eye treatment bottle, but if you can find an old glass Milk of Magnesia bottle, they are a deep blue color as well. My dad found the bottles for me in my grandparent's garage as he was finally cleaning it out. (A tornado destroyed their house itself in 1984.) I wonder what Grandma had planned for these? Probably something fairly similar because she was pretty crafty!
This bottle uses the Sale-A-Bration Rub-Ons that may be chosen as a free gift with a $50 purchase during SAB. The rub-on vine is wrapped all the way around the bottle-you might be able to see that in the picture on the left. Since I made it for myself, I didn't use any of the fun Friend sentiments on it.
