Magnolia-licious Summer Fun with Tilda Blog Hop!

Happy Blog Hop Day, Dearest Readers,

Today, the Magnolia-licious Design Team is having a Summer Fun Blog Hop! I must warn you. I have a TON of photos below! I wanted to show you every element of my project. I hope you don't mind!

You should have reached my site through Karen Gauthier's Blog. At the end of my post, I will tell you where the next stop is. OK? If you have strayed along the way, here is your starting point:

Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

You want to go to this page to find all the details and where to start. Diana is offering a prize of a wonderful surprise package to a lucky gal! To be eligible, you need to create a project and post it on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. You will have TWO WEEKS to enter your Summertime Project.

For my project, I decided to make some Summer Fun Decorated Water Bottles! I went through my stamps and selected images that represented things that kids like doing in the summer. I had to include a hiking Edwin, of course! I can't let the girls have all the attention, right?

Here are my photos. I hope you like what I've done!

These are the images I've used going from left to right - On the Road Tilda, Gone Fishing Tilda, Gucci Tilda, Tilda in Key Largo, Tilda with Cherry Ice, and Hiking Edwin. All images have been hand painted.

I began by using a MS border punch to create a decorative base for each bottle using three brightly colored summery papers. This was attached using Scor-Tape. That stuff is FANTASTIC! Next, I cut out the ovals and scalloped ovals using my Nestie dies. Around each bottle, at the shoulder, I added another band. This band had a separate strip to hold both the decorative straw and the painted image. Again, I used Scor-Tape to hold the image mat in place. Using another Nestie die, I cut a circle of matching paper for each cap. I added a pom pom to the cap, tied some baker's twine around the neck of each bottle, stamped a sentiment on a strip which was attached to the base strip and decorated with a Prima flower and tiny button. They are sooooooooooo cute!

Here are the bottles in pairs:

Would these be cute for a party?

Oh these would be so much fun for a summer picnic or heck even a fancy dinner party with FUN and GOOD FOOD (not cooked by me...lol) being the focus. What adorable images you chose, I think I like Edwin best, he is always left out so I am glad you invited him. Your project was well thought through Chris. As always PERFECT!
