That special "recycled" gift

This is such a nifty way to wrap a gift using recycled material!

Would you ever guess that this is actually from a Coke bottle?
I have used a 1 litre Coke bottle (but a 2 litre works just as well) and cut it approximately 11 cm from the base.

I then decoupaged the bottle with a serviette and left to completely dry.

The top section is then cut into 5 equal parts as shown.

I first of all bent these outwards and then inwards to ensure the "fold" was fixed.

The top corners were rounded.

and then all you need to do is close each one and these form the lid!

Now it can be decorated as you wish!

A small gift can be placed inside for that special person.

Simple and easy and best of all, using recyclable material.
Till next Time
