Jelly Bean Bubbles?

I am SO into recycling things at least once. Here I have a bottle that was from my favorite coffee flavoring. Vanilla. Yup, plain old vanilla!!! But it's my favorite in coffee!!!

Anyway, I liked the bottle plus the label was very easy to remove. Gotta LOVE that!!! I ran it in the dishwasher. Somehow I believe that it cleans it much better. I don't want to know if I'm wrong about that!!! LOL

I filled it with a package of pink, white and red jelly beans. It didn't quite fill it up all the way but that's ok. The gal I'm giving it to will love it anyway!!

I kept the decorating simple. I took a scrap piece of the Stampin' Up! "Candy Lane" decorative paper and glued it on with the Stampin' Up! Anywhere Glue Stick. I LOVE that glue stick. It sticks to glass SO well. I put a rubber band around the paper until the glue set.

While that was drying I stamped the large heart out using the Stampin' Up! set "Love You Much." I used Riding Hood Red ink and I cut it out. Then I colored in the one flower using the Pretty in Pink marker. I used the glue stick and glued it in place too. Using a rubber band to hold it until it dried.

While that was drying I used the 3 hearts stamp and stamped them using Riding Hood Red ink and Regal Rose card stock. I glued them in place and used the rubber band to hold them until the glue dried.

The little red heart on top of the largest heart was set in place using a Dimensional. I thought it looked great with the jelly beans!!! My friend is going to LOVE it!!!

It was a fun gift to make and was not very expensive!! At times we need to be thrifty. Recycling really helps with that!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hi Wanda, love your jelly bean bottle. Vanilla is my fave also. I put in for followers and no photos came up, they must have a problem on the blogger end looks like you have everything else right.

Have a great day.

This is awesome! I can't tell you how many times I have looked at bottles (lovingly, heehee) wanting to stamp them. This looks SO sweet. I just HAVE to try it now! Great that it was vanilla. The spice bottles I wanted to stamp up smelled like garlic, LOL. ;O)

What a cute and neat idea!! I wished I would have seen this last week because I threw away my empty vanilla bottle. I love to put it into coke for vanilla cokes!
