Clean frap bottle, use alcohol prep to remove date stamp from bottle. You do not have to remove stickers from bottle prior. It does peel off and does leave some adhesive. Rmove when you are ready to apply DSP and it will help it adhere it to the bottle. Using the sticky strip, apply strips on each end of the same side. This is the side that faces the bottle. (tip place lid on bottle and close tightly before glueing the paper to the bottle.) Remove the red peel from the tape and wrap around the bottle. I place it just at the small dots at the base of the bottle no lower than the dots. Rub around the bottle to help the paper top and bottom to mold to the jar. Then using the same method, apply your decorative strip around the DSP.
I used the cardstock stickers from the kit to decorate the top of the lid. I applied sticky strip around the edge of the cap and stuck my 6" of red ribbon around this. Starting and stopping where the seam from my DSP on the bottle is. This is why you tighten the cap before decorating the bottle.
Next wrap the 3 pieces of 15" grosgrain around the bottle neck and tie in a double knot.
Stamp your image on the one of the small white pieces you cut to layer on the mini chocolate chip card and glue the inside piece. This piece may not be needed if you use a lighter color cardstock instead of the chocolate chip I used on the sample. Punch a 1/8" hole in the top left of the inside of the card and set one eyelet. Attach the tag to the ribbon at the neck with the 5" linen thread.
Stamp an image on the 3 1 3/8" circles and glue to the two scallop circles. Punch hole and set eyelet in each scallop. Tie one end of the line thread to one scallop and loop the ribbon around the knot in the 3 grosgrains on the neck and then tie the other scallop on.
Fill bottle with whatever you can fit in it! Unshelled peanuts, shelled nuts, M & M's, candy corn, small candies. You could even put a recipe mix in it or for a craft man use screws, nails, or bolts, etc. There is no limit to gift ideas. If you just want to decorate a carton of the frappacino decorate the crate they come in also.
I am currently trying out a Yoo Hoo bottle since I am not a coffee drinker and the Yoo Hoo bottles are cheaper to purchase!
