One of my dearest friends and her daughter have opened a new business in Brighton called Green Door Studio.
It is an adorable shop filled with repurposed furniture, handmade crafts and hard-to-find items like vintage windows and drawer pulls. The store also has two classrooms so people can hang out and work on their own projects or take classes from several different teachers, including me!
When the store opened, I wanted to take something as a bit of a congratulations gift. Knowing the store’s (and my friend’s) philosophy on recycling and being “green,” I made this little vase out of a jelly jar (one that actually came with jelly in it, not one of my canning jars).
I added stickers from Authentique and stamped the word Congratulations on the label and then stuck it to the jar. Next I added some Tissue Tape from Tim Holtz, a bit of twine and a button (Stampin’ Up) to the rim of the glass.
