Printing with a Bottle

We tried printing flowers on tea towels with 0,5l bottles because I saw an article I can’t find any more circulate on Facebook with a number of cool things to do with a bottle. The idea seemed so simple: you make the petals with the bottom of the bottle and print the centre with the […]
