What a fun way to recycle your water bottles and use them for packaging! Can you guess how we got all the goodies inside? Can you guess how to get them out??
Well, here go! It's as simple as this...using an Exact-o knife, make a slit in the middle of the bottle.
Next, slide a pair of scissors in the slit and cut around the entire bottle - cutting the bottle in half.
Then, fill your bottle with your goodies. We used Easter grass and eggs.
Next, seal the bottle back with clear packing tape. Be sure to keep the bottle edges together straight.
Now it is time to decorate. We cut 2 strips of patterned paper and scalloped one of them. We glued them together. These two strips are creating the belly band around the bottle.
Next, we stamped, cut out, and sponged a chocolate bunny. We added a ribbon bow.
And, like we said, its as simple as that. Notice, we did add a little extra Easter grass under our bunny.
Now, go and pull out all those empty water bottles and get to creating some fun projects. Recycle, recycle, recycle!! These make great projects for birthday party favors or how about a scouts' craft project!
