2 Liter Bottle Baby Shower Gift :)

I made a 20oz bottle into a little gift card holder a couple of months ago and had been wanting to do a 2 liter bottle and finally got the chance for my Aunt's baby shower this past weekend.  Unfortunately I have been SO busy that I really only had about 45 minutes to get this together so it is "plain" but it did turn out cute.

Here it is:

I used some pink and purple paper which I wrapped around it (I took the label off and cut a hole like I did with the 20oz and how it was explained in the message board where my girlfriend first found this idea).  I then added some ribbon that says OH BABY and ITS A GIRL around the top and bottom (I hot glued the ribbon).  I then added some stickers that I had on hand and I made a gift card holder (using Cricut CraftRoom and the Art Philosophy cartridge) which I stamped with the cutest sentiment from My Creative Time's Many Greetings set, then I put a Target gift card in and stuck on the side of the bottle as well :)  I put some socks, wash clothes, and small baby toiletry in the bottle.  I added a ribbon bow to the lid and a baby rattle that looks like a diamond ring.  Too cute, right!  That is my new baby girl go to gift, that rattle is just too cute (I also got a purse one but it did not fit so I just gave it to her, LOL.  I cannot wait to make one of these when I more time to plan it out and cut out some cute decorations for the bottle, but I am glad I had those stickers on hard and it feels good to use "old" stuff just sitting in my stash!  TFL.

Have a craft day!
