French Perfume Label ~ project & printable

I've been thinking up ideas for Christmas
projects.  After sharing one of my ideas, Mom
said I could have a simple glass canister that
she never used anymore...

 First, I designed a label using 3 images from The Graphics Fairy...
I printed my labels onto cardstock & cut them out.
Look below for your free printable labels!

Next, I used slightly watered down white glue
to make an imperfect outline of the beautiful
scrolling border, and dusted with gold glitter.

Using the same glue (you could use
Mod podge, or whatever you like) I centered
and glued the label onto the clean canister. 

Haven't done this yet, but... I plan on spraying
clear acrylic sealer over the label, to protect it
from water damage, etc.

 Originally, the lid had a very country look ~ with a
large, rusty star and wooden spool on top.  Luckily, all I had
to do was take out the screw that held them in place, and
they were gone.  Instant transformation!

I think this makes a very pretty oversized vase.
At the moment, it looks great in my kitchen with
a candle inside... I also think it would make
a sweet gift filled with goodies at Christmas... 
love all the possibilities!

Please enjoy, free for personal use ~ thanks!
If you create something with these labels,
please let me know ~ I'd love to hear about it!

I'm linking up with Angie's Knick of Time Tuesday...
