Wash and dry bottle
Find area on bottle that is a flat area - cut a "C" shape in the plastic bottle. Just make the opening large enough to put your goodies inside.
Package your bath salts into a smaller zip top bag.
Put cotton balls in the bottom of the bottle
Fill your bottle with your other goodies. The hard candy makes a great space filler
Use the clear tape to close the flap on your "C"
Cut a strip of paper with a height large enough to cover the "C" and long enough to wrap around the bottle.
Glue strip of paper around bottle. Embellish as you wish.
Tie a ribbon on the top and you are done!

What a wonderful way to keep the recycling idea and a gift that can be tossed around by the postal service and not hurt!
You could make Russian Tea for a gift, too. It's:
Mix 1 8oz. jar of Tang or generic, and 1 8oz. jar of instant tea in large bowl. While turning your head (to avoid ascorbic acid dust), add 1 large package of Lemonade Drink Mix. Add 1/2 t. nutmeg and 1 t. cinnamon. Blend well and keep in air tight containers. When you are ready to steep, add the sugar. If you add 8 cups of sugar and then try and divide it equally among gifts, you may not have enough in some and too much in others. Best to let the recipient add their own.
