Full disclosure: The woman at the university’s mail center, not an official U.S.P.S. worker, would not let me mail this. She made me put it in a box. The Giver’s Log was successful at mailing hers, she was also the inspiration for my bottle to my sister. So, if you try this, make sure you talk to your postal worker first… or just realize that it’s a cool present even if it is in a box.
My sister turns 24 today! Happy birthday, L! Since I’m away at school, I wanted to send her something cool, like I did for my dad’s birthday. But since I had already sent a cake, I wanted to send a party in a bottle.
Here’s what I used:
- 1 sturdy, clear bottle
- 1 Birthday Girl Sash
- 1 Inflatable Light saber
- Avengers Stickers
- Wrapping Paper
- Packing Tape
- Birthday Note
My sister is a huge Avengers and Star Wars fan. This party in a bottle can easily change theme by using other stickers, candy, princess hat, or feather boa… pretty much anything light that will role, or fit into the bottle.
First, drain and dry your dry your bottle. Make sure to take off any labels it may have. Then, cut a hatch into the side so you can fill it like a piñata.
