Use Clear Two Liter Bottles as Gift Wrap

If you have clear 2 litre plastic soda pop bottles, you can use them to hold a gift. Just cut an "H" on the side of the bottle, peel open the plastic, insert gift, be it a wrapped gift with ribbon, a teddy bear or doll, or a fresh baked treat. Once you are satisfied with the look of the bottle with gift inside, close up the "H", and seal with some clear packing tape. Use this area as the back of your bottle display. Items can even be mailed with the correct postage attached.


I had a great time at the post office mailing a few of these gift bottles. Sure makes for a fun gift and it is even better when the receiver tries to figure out how you got the gift inside.

Could you be more descriptive on cutting the "H" out? I'm a bit confused, especially as to why it would be an "H" and how far you need to cut it etc... Any instructional pictures would help!!! Thanks!

im guessing the H would be to make flaps that open up you could push the gift through but would go back into place after
