Altered Project Flower Kit Step by Step Tutorial by Shell

Design Team member Shell Carman is sharing a step by step tutorial today!

Here's Shell...

Here is a step by step tutorial on how I used the August Flower Kit to alter X2 glass candle jars

You will need
The August Flower Kit
X2 glass candle jars (I just got mine from the $2 shop)
X 4 lengths of Organza Ribbon approx 20"& 25"
Patterned Paper
X4 Vintage trinkets
X 4 lengths of jewellery chain approx 3.5" & 3"
X8 jewellery findings

Start by creating the dangly trinket chain

Attach a jewellery finding to each end of chain then attach a vintage trinket to one end

Take the long length of ribbon & tie it around the top of the candle jar making a bow
Posted Image

Take the shorter length of ribbon & tie it to your bow making a knot. Do not make a second bow just yet
Take a dangly trinket chain & thread one onto each side of the ribbon
Posted Image

Now make your second bow so that the ribbon secures the dangly trinket chains in place

Cut a piece of Patterned Paper 12"X4". Punch the edges.
Wrap this piece around the centre of the candle jar & stick

Turn the glass jar around so that the bow is to one side.Take one of the large blue flowers from the Meredith Dove pack. Stick this in the centre. Take 2 zva creative roses & stick these diagonally either side of the blue flower

Fussy Cut some images & stick on either side of large blue flower. Make sure that one image is larger than the other. Stick the larger size on the opposite side of the bow & the smaller image on the opposite side

Take 1 Sherwood Rose & stick this above the blue flower so it sits next to the zva creative flower
Stick 2 Avon roses (the larger size) next to the sherwood rose
Posted Image

Take 3 Avon roses (the smaller size) . Stick one next to larger Avon Rose. Stick one under large blue flower next to zva flower. Stick one underneath highest sitting zva flower

& that's all there is! This is quick & easy & looks really pretty!
