Party Favour Boxes From Plastic Bottles – Step-by-Step Tutorial
Difficult to believe that these five party favour boxes were once plastic bottles that contained soft drinks. By recycling plastic bottles in this way, you not only do your bit for Mother Earth, but you also have quite unique favour boxes for your child’s birthday party. Older children can make these boxes too, but please supervise the cutting procedures. You can use the bottles as is and just decorate with ribbons and a bows, and add small items for further decoration. You can paint them, decoupage them, cover them with modge-podge or white glue that dries clear and add glitter or simply add a few stickers for decoration purposes. You can fill them with snacks or anything else that will suit the theme of your child’s birthday party. The party favour boxes are made in the same way as the small snackholders I showed you a few weeks ago but with the big (2 liter) soft drink plastic bottles. Gather enough bottles for the number of party guests you are going to invite. Related:  Plastic Bottle Crafts

Make Your Own Yarn Dispenser Using Everyday Materials Make A Basic Yarn Holder & Dispenser Using a Humble Zip-Lock Bag I was working on slippers and using 4 strands for the soles.

For a set of five stars and three snowflakes, set aside eight plastic bottles. They can be colored or clear. Slice off the bottom end of each bottle using a serrated knife. To make a star, cut out triangle-shaped shapes from the sides. For a hanging ornament, cut out two identical stars and hang them back to back.
