Another Easter project

I seem to be making more Easter projects this year than any other year... wonder why that is? Luckily I have no shortage of lovely people I can share them with.

This one is for the Design Dollies Elements Challenge - Adina-Dollie challenged us to use at least seven buttons on a project. This is what I made:

How to:
* Wash and dry a small recycled bottle - I have a heap of these cute iced coffee bottles in my stash, perfect for gift-giving.
* Punch a strip of patterned paper along both sides (I used Little Yellow Bicycle 'Love Notes', punched with Martha Stewart 'Floral Lace' punch).
* Cut the strip to length and adhere around the bottle near the base.
* Stamp out seven flowers on scraps of patterned paper. I used offcuts of: Bo Bunny Double Dot, Little Yellow Bicycle, Dream Street 'Bailee's Garden', K&Co 'Jubilee', Kaisercraft; two different flower stamps by Rhonna Farrer, from Autumn Leaves, Stazon black ink.
* Fussy-cut the flowers and add buttons to the centres.
* Arrange the flowers around the bottle, and adhere them to the paper strip.(Rubber bands are useful to hold them into place until the glue dries.)
* Add a ribbon, and alphabet stickers (Cosmo Cricket 'Tiny Type').
* Fill the bottle with goodies - these ones are little choc-mint eggs.

I did try to get some photographs from different angles, but it's tricky with round things!!
