Pop Bottle as a Gift Bottle

Baby Gift Bottle
I saw an idea to use a pop bottle as a container 
for a gift, so I gave it a try for a baby gift I need to give.

Pretty little package for a pretty new baby!

Remove the label from the bottle and use it
as a template for the new label allowing extra to overlap

Size:  5 1/2" x 15 3/4"
I pieced this together since I used 12" x 12" card stock
Scor-tape was used to adhere the card stock pieces together
and to adhere the decorations since it will need 
to bend around the round shape. 

 Use Goo Gone to remove left over pieces of label/glue
Make a slit in bottle allowing enough room to use 
utility scissors to cut an U shape to create a door
to load gift items inside.  

Be sure to make door smaller than label.
Use the back side of utility knife to
lightly score on right side of door so it will 
stay open when loading.

Run card stock through your shredder to match colors needed.
Bunch the pieces up with hands to get the scrunched look.

Load gift items in bottle and use small piece of tape to
close the door.  Adhere the decorated label to the bottle
by using Scor-tape.

My gift happens to be baby outfits, but small gift items really 
look better inside such as office supplies, baby rattles, etc.

Have fun creating unique gift containers that will
show those receiving it how much you care!


  1. I love this idea. A baby bottle cap and nipple would be cute on the top, too. Blessings.

  2. You are so right! I thought about that after I made it! Lol I will try that next time! I have a few more to make...lot's of friends having babies!
