Birthday Bottle



I labeled this post as a Personal Challenge because this little project will be ongoing throughout the year. Not that you'll see any more of these, but the rest of our family and friends will be receiving these for their birthdays.
I'm continually amazed at what you find on YouTube. Apparently this was a big craze a few years ago. Sending empty soda bottles through the mail. Well, I say empty, but that's not exactly true. You cut a U opening in the side of the bottle after you have removed the label, stuff it with whatever you want that is mailable, you know they have rules. I am going to enclose a 3 X 3 card in my bottles along with some birthday stuff. I attached the label over the cut U opening and finished the whole thing off with some Duct Tape.
My BIL was the first recipient, his birthday is today, but I mailed it so he would get it yesterday, got a phone call and was he ever surprised and even though he's an old codger he got a big kick out of the little goodies stuffed inside.
Mailing and everything is under $5 for just a little something different and fun for people of all ages.
My card was created with all Stampin' Up products, except for the corner punch.

Happy Creating--
