Message In A Bottle is the easiest craft you can make for your Valentine and I love how you can personalize it with your personal message for your loved one.
How To Do it Yourself
Start by selecting the medium-sized bottle. It can either be glass or plastic like mine. I have recycled a soya sauce plastic bottle here for this project.
Step 2: Peel off the label from the bottle. Just soak the bottle in water for 5 minutes and scrub it off. The label will come off easily. I selected the champagne cork that fits this bottle perfectly. I didn’t use the plastic cap of this bottle.
Step 3: Now it is time to prepare the love scroll. This is going to be your space where you write your personalized message to your loved one. Take a normal paper from one of your notebooks. Make sure the paper fits into the bottle and is not oversized.
Step 4: Light a candle and slightly burn the edges of the paper. Now brew some coffee. Take a plate and pour the coffee and soak the paper you just burnt the edges. This is to make the paper to have some vintage look, if you’re not interested and running out of time, just skip this step.
Step 5: Take a cardstock, I used red color (It’s Valentine’s day!!) and stick the paper to the cardstock. And now, it’s ready to write your message. Roll it and seal it with ribbon or a piece of printed paper.
Step 6: Time to decorate the bottle. Fill the bottle with glass gems, insert your personalized message into the bottle and close it with the cork. Take the satin ribbon and make a bow around the neck of the bottle. Use a tag if you’d like to. If you don’t have glass gems, you can fill it with sand, or shells or colored crepe paper scraps. The options are endless, so let your imagination fly.
