I learned how to make these fun flowers using the Oh, Hello Set and Creped Filter Paper at Leadership. The directions for making the painted glass bottle vases were in an issue of the magazine that is sent to all Demonstrators every other month. We've recently been drinking some flavored waters that come in these cool bottles, so I decided to turn them into vases for the flowers as an extra treat for my Hostesses and the first two to turn their orders in for March.

To make the vases, you can use any clean glass bottle or vase. Just mix some Ink Refill of the color you want with some white acrylic paint. Pour the paint into the bottle or vase and keep rolling it around until the inside of the vase is covered. You can let the vase air dry or put it in a cold oven and then turn on the heat to 325 degrees and let it bake for 10 minutes. Leave the vase in the oven to allow it to cool so it doesn't break from a sudden temperature change. The amount of ink and paint that you use will depend on the size of the bottle or vase and how intense you want the color to be.
To make the flowers, just stamp the zig zag oval from the Oh, Hello Set around the edges of a Creped Filter Paper circle and in the center. Let the ovals overlap a bit. Stamp three circles. Stack the circles on top of each other and gather them together in the center with a little pinch of the paper. Wrap a floral wire around the pinched area. Crumple the paper to make the flowers.
