Altered Bottle

It was my dear friend's birthday on the 4th day of June and I made her a special gift! It didn't take me long to think because I know what she loves so I decorated an empty glass bottle with duplicate postage stamps from my collection that I normally swap with my penfriends. I adorned the bottle with some ribbons, lace and flowers. Finally I applied coating over the postage stamps.

I was inspied to make an altered project from Let's Scrap DT Denise who offered an Altered Project Challenge during [Inter]National Scrapbooking Month previously. Her challenge was to use postage stamps for the altered project. Unfortunately I was too busy myself with my own challenges back then to take part. In the end, I spent some moment and designed this gift for Asnah's birthday.

...and here's the back view...

I felt so happy the day I gave Asnah my art project. To see her smile and happiness simply thrills me. I'm so glad she likes my handmade creation.
I am already thinking what to give her next, lol. We both love crafts a lot and can talk about it for hours and often inspire each other. Such a great friend!

Thanks again for visiting me today. Until then, have a great weekend!
