Covered Frapp Bottle Tutorial
I did everything by eyeball. I first decorated some white cardstock with a peppermint candy stamp and red ink. You can use patterned paper for a simpler decoration. I cut this into strip about 2 inches wide and ... about 9 inches long- but measure yours before you cut! It may be different!
I then cut my coordinating cardstock (green) about 2 1/2 inches by 9 inches.I glued the green cardstock onto my bottle first, then added the patterned paper.
Next I used the same stamp and a "Merry Christmas" stamp and my scalloped circle cutter to create the tag. Usually I attach my tag with ribbon but decided to try out the pipe cleaner squiggles I saw here. I threaded my tags onto the squiggles and thought it was cute.
Finally I filled the bottles with Starlight Mints and topped them with my free Pocket Wishes that I won online! I love those little tokens. They are really cute and a great way to say "Thank You!".
- I suggest that you use a wrapped candy to fill your bottle. I am a teacher and I am always a little leery of eating unwrapped foods, as are my coworkers
- Check out Lizard and Ladybug's etched glass frapp bottle for a little different take on the same idea!
- I used some scotch tape to secure the patterned paper over the solid cardstock
- Have fun and send me a link if you make one!
