We are Recycling at Card for Men

Recycle project
Starting 2012 out right, our Challenge #1 at Cards for Men is “RECYCLING”. 
These were Frappuccino bottles that you can buy at the store. They look like this after you drink the Frappuccino and most people put them in the garbage. I save mine because you can put so many things in them and give them as gifts.

I really can’t tell you how I cover the carton because I just measure it and cut out what I need and glue the card stock. The Paper I used is from DCWV The at home stack. Cut 1.50 inch strips about 10 inches long to go around the bottles, I used Martha Steward linked trim to go on top of the strips and weaved gold or blue ribbon in and out of each linked trim. The circles punch out 2 for each bottle are Stamp’in up 1.75 inch, and the scalloped punch out 2 for each bottle is 1.50 inch. Used .25 inch ribbon to go a round the bottle caps. I add the Fleur De Lis, I had them in my stash. They both where charms but I filed off the loop on the ones I add to the scalloped circle. I thought they would work nice because our last name is St Martin.

This is what I did to the tops. These work so nice for gifts because you can add different kinds of candy, bath salts, sewing things, put felt in the bottom and use them to hold all kinds of things. Just depends on how you decorate the bottles. If you give them a try let me know I would love to see what you do.
