Monday Make Itz

BUCK A BOTTLE

I will be going to a craft retreat.
One of the activities is a fundraiser for scholarships.
It is called  'BUCK  A BOTTLE'!
I'm not sure how the activity works, so I will need to report afterwards.
However, we have been asked to decorate a clean and dry water bottle.
TIP: Stuff a paper towel into the bottle to pick up the water droplets.
I used a knitting needle to move the towel around. 
The idea is to cover the bottle so what is inside is a surprise.
Next, put item/items into the bottle worth at least One Dollar.
It is amazing what will fit through the opening of a water bottle!

I covered 3 bottles with patterned duck tape.
My items included: 24 pack of crayons, 8 gel pens, 12 colored pencils.
I chose these items since another activity is adult coloring, (and I love coloring supplies!)
I was tempted to put a One Dollar Bill into the bottle, then the participant could purchase another bottle! However, I went with the coloring supplies. Maybe I will do that next year.

This would be a fun activity for a holiday party gift exchange. 


Decorated and filled Buck a Bottle!
