I had purchased this bottle several months ago at Goodwill because I had liked the shape of it. It took me awhile to come up with an idea for it, but I knew that I would use it for some project.
When inspiration hit, I gathered my supplies, printed out my images from The Graphics Fairy, found the sheet music online, and reused some Epsom Salts that worked as faux snow during Christmas.
I had this great shaped tag that I kept from a wine gift basket and used that as my base and template.
I chose the sheet music and title from the song “Time In A Bottle”, that classic Jim Croce hit, and built my theme around that.
After cutting the sheet music portion to the shape of the tag, I distressed it a little around the edges. I also cut the song title from the top of the sheet music and did the same.
Using the clock images from The Graphics Fairy, I glued two of the same images back to back because I wasn’t sure how they were going to land once I stuck them in the bottle. Using a black colored pencil I drew the hands of the clocks on each side and popped them into the bottle where I had already poured the Epsom Salts.
The clock faces each indicate the time each of my kids were born and I think the Epsom Salts gives the look of “the sands of time”. A decorative accessory with meaning!
