Recycled Easter Basket / Mailer

Empty 2 liter bottles make awesome mailers! They are super because you aren't adding extra weight before you add your surprises. I was in several Easter Pal swaps using bottles and this is one sample. The bottles also come in a variety of colors.

You can cut a door as I did or cut the entire bottom of the bottle to fill.
Add some shredded paper or tissue paper, add your surprises, securely glue the lid on ( I used liquid glass) . Great view for the person receiving and the postal employees!
I have added 4 x 4" chipboard sheets, glue stick, candle, incense, candy and MUCH more to this one! It's amazing how much they can hold!

Securely tape around the bottle to cover your door. Add an index sized card for your addresses and get it weighed to mail~ or tie a great bow and hand deliver! Sorry I can't show my address as I don't want the 3 ladies knowing which one is getting this bottle!

Those are fun to give/receive. I made them last year for my g.k. & they loved it.
