Simple Simple Vase for the Office

I decided I am going to try to keep fresh flowers on my desk at work as often as I can this school year - so here is the pretty little vase I made last night. You know how I love Starbucks Frappuchino bottle!
I just spray painted a tall one white - added a black and white ribbon that matches the decor in my office - (I have this ribbon around my bulletin board) added a string of stick on beads and a gold letter G.
I will cut some of my roses before I leave for work this morning but for now I added a couple of stalks of bamboo to show it off.

These are the roses I have blooming right now in my flower beds. I cut these last week and they lasted all week.
