I'm always looking for fun ways to package gifts. I bought some fun t-shirts for the kids this year, and decided to wrap them in a empty Diet Coke bottle.
It was really easy to do, I just carefully cut a out a part of the bottle on the label with a razor blade. I stuffed some paper shred in the bottom and a handful of candy. The t-shirt was rolled up and wrapped in a piece of tissue paper. Then I stuffed the t-shirt into the bottle. Using clear packing tape, I adhered the piece of bottle that I cut off. Then, I made a belly band with some matching paper, some baker's twine and a few buttons. A bow was wrapped around the neck of the bottle. For the gift tag, I just covered a clothespin with some paper and attached the coffee gift card holder to the bow.
Simple, simple....I grew a holiday pimple!
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Recollections
Misc: Soda bottle, ScorTape, baker's twine, buttons, ribbon, clothespin, jingle bell
I've got to hurry to get ready for work, I have a 12 hour day ahead of me, ugh!
Thanks for stopping by,
