These Plastic Bottle boxes make a splendid gift for women yet would too be a nice DIY gift for anyone this time of year. They are ideal for autumn! And you can fill them with a small keepsake or puny gift, but I suggest these mini jars of apple butter! A very seasonal and delicious treat.
I would advice choose medium plastic 1 liter and 1.5 liter bottles. For truly large gifts you could utilize 2 liter bottles.
First I cut the bottoms off the bottles and made sure they were clean and dry.
From bottles we will only need the bottom part (but the rest do not throw away – still need it).
Then I spray painted the inside of the bottle bottoms with red and green colors. Ensure you are coated with the tape.
Begin spray the insides lightly. You will must to apply a few layers to achieve an even coat that does not have drips or pools of wet paint. You only necessity to wait a five minutes between paint coats.
Now we need to fix the zip lock.
First sew one end of the zipper to one of the bottle bottoms and then unzip it almost all the way and sew the other side to the rim of the second bottle bottom.
The container can be made in the form of an apple, or decorated in the form of an weird little monster or animal.
I used carton to cut-out a stalk and green cards stock for a paper leaf. The stem is hot-glued on and the leaf is tied onto the stem with fiber. The leaf would be a good place to write for example a “to” and “from.”
By the way, if you still have empty plastic bottles, then I advise you to make wonderful flower pots.
