Crafting on a budget - Altered vase

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy! Did you know that we have a challenge running over at the Stamping with the Dragon challenge blog ? pop on over and take a peek and enter for a chance to win a fab prize to spend in the store!
Its time for the Crafting on a Budget feature and this fortnight I would like to share with you a vase that I have altered and I hope that you like it.

And here is how I did it.
I selected the papers, flowers and embellishments and cut and tore them then put them to one side. Next I covered the vase with Modge Podge and added the torn and cut papers until the whole of the vase was covered and then popped a layer of Modge Podge and left it to dry .
Once dry I added the paper flowers again using Modge Podge and when they were dry I used a little guilding wax on the edges of the papers.
Next I added all around the vase a piece of jute and red lace, tied some jute in a bow, attached it using red double sided tape and popped a hessian rose bud at the centre. I also added a piece of lace to the top of the vase and some card candi to the centre of the flowers.
Altogether this has cost around £1.50 to make so it really has been Crafting on a Budget!
Here are the links to the papers that I have used
Lost and Found Treasures mini theme
Cinnamon Spice papers
Aged Journal - Angels kit
I hope that you have enjoyed my Crafting on a Budget feature this fortnight and I hope that you will join me in two weeks time for more Crafting on a Budget where I will be sharing with you " Flowers from around the home".
Thanks for stopping by
see you next time
Hugs and Love
