“Welcome to the first Scrapbook Place Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Linda’s blog, you are on the right track ~ if you just happened on my blog, please head back to Lindsy’s blog, ,which is the first stop on our hop.”
Now to my special Birthday Hop Project. This special Birthday Treat Package was introduced to me by my special friend, Sandi Dufern, one of the craftiest crafters I know, and a good soul to boot. Not only did she show me the many different ways I could use a simple four-pack carton of Starbucks Frappe bottles, but brought in boxes of washed bottles to start me on my frenzied way. And the bonus is drinking these delish drinks before washing and stripping the labels off the empties--yum!
Once your bottles are dry, you can cover the carton with patterned papers of your choice. I reinforced the bottom with extra cardboard before covering so that the heavier treats that go into the bottles are supported.
Embellish to your heart's content, both the carton and each bottle. Make sure the embellishments on the bottles don't get in the way of pulling them out of the carton.
While I loved to embellish my Treat Package for my sister's birthday, the best part was filling each bottle with her fave treats (you know a whole bag of Hershey's Kisses won't fit into the bottle so...)
These bottles make wonderful gifts for a teacher, filled with paper clips, stickers, and treats; for a school nurse, with bandaids and alcohol wipes, etc; for your favorite handyman, filled with nails, screws, washers and such. The list is endless on how you can fill these bottles and to whom you can gift them!
Just don't drink too many frappes in one sitting!!
