I love working with companies that care about the environment through creativity. IZZE is one of those awesome companies. While chatting a few months ago about a potential review, they challenged me to do an upcycled project using their bottles or bottle caps. You know, instead of the typical “so I tried out the product and loved it” kind of blah review. I’m a big fan of IZZE to begin with, so I actually have tried out their products and I really do love them. So, I was pretty excited when a package of IZZE sparkling juice and swag arrived on my doorstep (scroll down to the bottom for a chance to win some IZZE swag of your own). I downed a few bottles of their sparkling blackberry juice and got out my glue gun.
A little back story about how this project came about. My almost 2 year old spotted a bouquet of daisies in the grocery store recently and went nuts over them. He wanted to “mell, mell, mell” them. That would be “smell, smell, smell” them in toddler language. He took in a big giant whiff and gave me the biggest smile. I got a big giant smile on my face because, for once, I literally stopped to smell the
roses daisies and my son was teaching me how to. Now that we had a fresh bouquet of beautifully “melling” daisies, we needed a vase to put them in. These upcycled bottle vases would look fabulous as party centerpieces or make a set for your mama as a Mother’s Day gift.
