This glass wine bottle measures about 15 inches high.  There is a hole drilled in the back to insert  mini string of clear lights.  Grape cluster is formed by 1/2 inch glass beads glued on with Shoe Goo. 

Neck and top of bottle is decorated with paper flowers made with 'Tiny Tattered Floral' die by Tim Holtz.  The little bird topping off the cork is from the digital kit 'Today' by Karen at Snickerdoodle Designs.  You can get that HERE

These 'Whimsical Birds' are from a digital mini kit by Snickerdoodle Designs called 'Today'.  You can get the kit at her store HERE

I started by bringing  each bird into Photoshop to make three different sizes.  Each bird had to be flipped before printing so I could glue them together.  The legs are made of 14 gauge wire.  The background pages match the birds perfectly.  I printed some for covering the blocks and some for the flowers.

After the glue dried I coated them with 3D Crystal Lacquer to give them a shiny look.  Then covered the wood blocks and burnished the edges with Distress Ink.

The blocks measure 1' by 1 1/2'.  The flowers are made from 'Tiny Tattered Florals' die by Tim Holtz.

I only need one bookend for my desk.  The base is made of blocks of wood wrapped with paper.  It's job is to hold my books and calenders up against my printer.

I started by gathering a basic metal bookend and different sizes of wood blocks.  The papers are from a Tim Holtz  'Steampunk' paper pack.  Bookend  measures 7x9.


Here's a side view.  It measures 4 inches wide.  I used  Tim Holtz's 'Tattered Florals' die for the roses and his 'Tiny Tattered Florals' for the smaller flowers.  All the other findings and do-dads came out of my stash.
