Paper and Charm Embellished Bottles

Sheet music and paper from the Rue Romantique Project Book, vintage bottles and charms,  combine under Polly Hendrickson’s hands to make beautiful, decorative bottles for your vanity.

In this project ICE Resin acts as glue as well as protecting and making your paper luminous.

Tip: Use Staz-On Ink to distress the edges of the paper to give your bottles additional dimension.

Tip: Smaller bottles are great additions to necklaces!
