Altered Valentines present

Well it get more difficult to buy for my hubby on every occasion. But as I am just so loving in altering things I thought about this last night. He loves Whiskey, (although he is suppose to be cutting it out, one little tipple won't hurt). So I have altered a small bottle for him.

I popped in some of those gorgeous Lindt truffles, also his favourites. The celophane bag I bought off Ebay and I have stamped on it using cotton white stazon and I used a swirl stamp from the Priceless SU set.

You can just make it out in the photo. The lable is made using some of the £1.49 stamps to create a border, the love is a rub on and the potion is peeloffs. I left it all to the last minute so had to use what was in my stash. What you can't see is the scalloped boder I created using my corner punch.

This is the tag , which is stamped using my Circle of Friendship stamps from SU. The scallop I cut on my cricut from mini monograms. Then it tied around the top with ribbon, again from SU. I just hope he likes it as its something totally different. I suppose this idea can be used for many occasions.
