V'Day Vase in a Snap(ple)!

Nothing says Valentine's Day more than
a beautiful vase with flowers
Hey kids, let's show a little extra LOVE this holiday season by
recycleing and repurposeing too.

For this project you will need a recycled glass Snapple Bottle, a big jar of ModPodge, pretty v-day colored tissue paper cut into little squares, heartfelt words, and a whole lot of LOVE!!!
First, using a small brush, put a little Mod Podge on the glass surface. Then put a tissue square on that spot and pat it down with your finger or brush. Then put a little Mod Podge on top of the tissue to get all the edges down.
Then repeat that over and over again, overlapping the squares, until the whole bottle is covered. 
Now it's time for the heartfelt words – I LOVE YOU... CUTIE PIE... YOU'RE THE BEST – you get the idea! I printed out a sheet of words using 12 point font, cutting and tearing  them beforehand so they're ready to apply. Put them on with a little Mod Podge, on top of your pretty tissue squares. Finish off with a final coat of Mod Podge, sealing the whole thing!

Add some beautiful flowers... and of course, seal it with a Kiss!  

So simple, so pretty, so Enviro-Friendly, too...
