For my project today, I took a cleaned out two liter pop bottle, removed the label, and cut a a little door in the area that I decided will be the back of the bottle. I cut the little door where the label was stuck to the bottle and I couldn't get all of the label off in that spot.

I then took some pretty pink napkins and crumpled a few of them up and stuffed them in the bottom of the bottle just to raise up the items a bit that I was putting in the bottle. I then put my items in the bottle through the little door. I added some Crystal Light water flavor packets and bags of candy to the inside of the bottle.

I then put some scotch tape over one part of the door just to hold it closed. I used all Bazzill paper in different colors. I used my Cricut with the Birthday Bash Cartridge to cut out the birthday cake and candle. 

I also used stickles on the birthday cake, candle and confetti and the stamp is from My Pink Stamper's new Birthday Doodles stamp set. I also added a bow to the top around the cap. I made this gift for a very special lady in my life and I hope she will like it. I hope you all like my project also. Here's a close up:

Now head on over to our special guest designer Jamie and see what wonderful creation she has to share with you today.

  10. Your bottle is so fun. I remember seeing this idea on the Cricut message board and put it on my to do list. But, of course that list is lost somewhere in the endless messy craft room. Thank you for reminding me of this fun packaging. I think I will be using the 20 oz bottles and making small thank you teacher gifts for the last day of school.

  11. This is such a unique packaging idea, Sandy! TFS!
