This used to be a....glass jar

After some extremely creative and brilliant inspiration from Nikita and Snehal...this is Juhi with an altered glass jar.
I am not going to share a detailed tutorial cause I don't think it needs one, there's no rocket science about the whole thing, I took this glass jar,

removed the logo and simply covered it with washi tape.
Then I went ahead and die-cut some flowers from old paperbacks and packaging,
sprayed them generously with smooch spritz, walnut stain ink and May Mist.
Paper pierced the flowers and added a button for the flower center with some copper wire which I've had since I was a kid! The wire also acts as the stem for the flower. This is what the finished flower looks like.
After playing around with the arrangement of flowers in the vase I finally settled with this...
Hope you like it, and don't forget to link up your altered project here......can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
