Love Letter Bottles

By: Melony Bradley

Looking for a fun upcycled craft to make from old glass bottles? Create Love Letter Bottlesfrom Melony Bradley. This is a fun way to show someone you care! Get creative and write inspiring notes to loved ones.

Love Letter Bottles
 

Materials:

  • Small glass bottles
  • Sizzix's Tim Holtz Hardware Findings die
  • National Nonwovens brown felt
  • Cord
  • Aleene's Collage Pauge
  • Embellishments

Directions:

  1. I used those mini "airplane" sized wine bottles to make an embellished letter keeper that I can display. I attached a cord to the inside lid so that when the lid is removed, the letter comes out. Sort of a message in a bottle type thing.

  2. I used Sizzix's Tim Holtz Hardware Findings die to cut the key hole from National Nonwovens brown felt. Vintage dictionary pages provide a fitting background and embossed metal sheets from Walnut Hollow provide a small border. My favorite part of making these was searching through old book pages to come up with fitting phrases that describe the theme of each love letter. I used Aleene's Collage Pauge to apply these to painted Patera Findings.
     
  3. My second favorite part was embellishing the lids with paint, beads and pearls. The keys are a scrapbook embellishment find from K and Company. They ensure that my old love letters are safe, under lock and key.
