Up-cycled Shampoo bottle with Kusudama flowers

I up-cycled this bottle of Schwarzkopf Volume Boost Shampoo. Sliced off the top with a cutter, added some washi tape, sequined lace and golden ribbon bow. 
The kusudama flowers are from an old magazine.  I sprayed some walnut stain ink and golden shimmer mist on flowers once completed. The flowers though extremely easy to make involved a LOT of paper folding! 
Here's the vase brightening up my otherwise boring office desk...

The wooden buttons for the flower centers are from some old curtains.
