What a pill!

Are these not the cutest pill bottles? I had them sitting on the counter now for like 3 weeks (may be more but who is countin except hubby!) so I thought I can't just throw them out. So I thought I would use them for a challenge- Stamp Something Challenge wants us to make a project using something new, well of course the bottles are not new but the Sprites on top and the paper is all new. So I covered the pill bottles with the DP which is a K&Co paper and I used red sticky tape to hold it or else it didn't want to hold well. I also used sticky tape to put the ribbon on, I had the ribbon hang over the edge of the rim so that it would fully cover the bottle lip. This is SU Rose Red grosgrain and it matched so well. I put a scallop on the top that was coordinating with the DP and then some sprites with pearls. The one bottle needed something so I added the pearls and it just was perfect. When I showed my husband what I did he got a smile on his face, looked them over and said they were pretty cool (but note, he will not put one on his desk to hold paperclips or anything! Go figure!). I am going to send the one to one of my staff- you're fabulous with something in it. What do you think?

The pill bottles may not be new but the idea is. I don't think I've ever seen an altered pill bottle before. Very pretty little holders.

Cute idea. I have several bottles to keep extra brads and eyelets that come in the little bags and once opened have nothing to put them in. Mine are all plain and amber, yours will look so nice on a shelf.
Thanks for the idea!

How clever! I've altered alot of stuff, but never thought of a pill bottle.

Now I'll be looking around for even more stuff to alter.

These are very beautiful!

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am

still tempted to say: really good!
