I found this bottle in the clearance aisle at my local craft store.
Roll out a long strand of Paperclay® and attach to bottle.
Clean residue from bottle again and set aside.
To make the roses, I have a series of photos for you to see the step-by-step process.
When you finish attaching the petals, you will find that a bit of the clay extruded out from the bottom as you were pinching, so cut off the excess, pinch and form into a neater, small flower bottom.
While these are air drying, make tiny little leaves. These are so easy to make. Simply press small bits of Paperclay® onto your craft sheet (or a piece of wax paper) and trim into marquee shapes. Add veins with a toothpick or clay tool, if you have one.
Color the roses and leaves with the mists. Let dry. I wanted to add a bit of shabbiness to the roses, so I dabbed a tiny bit of watered down vanilla acrylic paint around the petals. I also added a touch of brown distress ink to the strands to give them a more mottled, natural look.
rose water to your bottle, and you are done! What do you think? Wouldn't this make a wonderful gift for someone special?
