Frappuccino Bottles

Not only are frappuccinos yummy to drink but they're fun to decorate and fill too!!! These are a special order and they are for 6 girls and 5 boys with personalized bookmarks. I kept the decoration rather simple as they will be shipped but it was so much fun to put them together!

To get the bottles ready, I put them in hot, soapy water for a while and then peel the labels off. I use an SOS pad to remove extra adhesive residue and then rinse them and run them through the dishwasher to get really clean. A 1-1/2" circle punch works perfectly for the top and the strip to go around the bottle is 9" by 2". This gives you enough paper to overlap when adhering the strip to the bottle and to itself. I use Miracle Tape which is similar to red-line tape (but much cheaper - 55 yards for $5.75) to adhere the paper to the bottle and to itself. You can put all kinds of items in them - m&ms (as pictured here) or wrapped candies, bubble bath, bath salts, office supplies, etc. The sky is the limit as long as it fits in the bottle.

These were good sellers for me at the last craft fair and I'm working on some for the Christmas Craft Fair in Abilene, KS, on December 6th. If you're in the area, stop by.

Happy Stamping!
