It is the start of a new year and so time to share a new small birthday gift that is perfect for teens. In my case teenage girls from our church youth group, or Young Women. My niece had received a soda bottle with the phrase “Soda Lighted” (instead of so delighted) as a going away present from her leaders and I thought it was adorable! I decided to purchase a variety of fun bright sodas from a local supplier. We have a cute toy/candy shop that has a large selection but Cost Plus World Market also has a great supply. And before any of you worry, the one on the right is Apple Beer, a delicious apple flavored soda.
- Card stock
- Hole Punch
- Ribbon or Pipe Cleaner
- Paper Straws
- Free Printable
I made a label that would fit any bottle. I designed them in bright fun colors to match the cheery soda bottles. Then I punched a hole on each side so I could weave ribbon or in my case silver and gold pipe cleaner.
I found a roll of leftover pipe cleaner from Christmas decor that I had picked up at Sam’s Club last year and cut about 8 inch strips. I fished them through each hole punched and twisted the ends and bent them into two bows. Then stuck a paper straw in between the bottle and the pipe cleaner.
