Soda Bottle Christmas Wrap!

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!
