A HOUSEwarming Gift...
Do you know what today is? None other than the day of the season five premiere of House, MD! Hooray!!! I am so excited... This is my absolute favorite show! We really don't watch much TV. Just House and The Office. :) It seemed only fitting that today's project would be dedicated to House. I wanted to alter an item to hold some treats, and I'd never seen anyone alter a prescription bottle. Why do prescription bottles fit the theme? Well, YES, it's a hospital drama show! But if you watch, you know that House is always popping Vicodin. It is best to use bottles that have never held medicines, obviously, and some pharmacies will oblige if you ask them for a couple of empty bottles. If you want to try this project with some empty bottles that you have lying around the house, PLEASE be sure to wash them VERY well! And do not use them if residue from medicine they contained could POSSIBLY be dangerous. I am probably labeling myself Captain Obvious by saying all that, but still...
I used the Spooky patterned papers by Pebbles, Inc. Of course. I LOVE these papers! Haven't gotten yours yet? Order them HERE! I embellished simply, using cardstock stickers from the Spooky Stickers sheet and Spooky Words sticker sheet from the same line.
Did you notice that SUPER COOL ribbon around the bottle?? Limelight Papercrafts now carries Tulle Ribbon (by Bazzill) in four colors! The colors I used are Raven and Butterfly, and we also carry Tink Pink (what a fun name!) and Parakeet. I will be entering in some more new ribbon this afternoon (brown stripe, brown gingham, brown sheer polka dot, red stripe, black stripe...) so keep your eyes peeled!!
What's in this bottle? REESE'S PIECES! Fits the color theme, right?
If you make one of these, leave me a link! I'd love to see what you come up with. These would also be great get well gifts, wouldn't they?? ;)
