    My fiance and I are at odds regarding this....lol

    The shipping is going to be pretty pricey on glass bottles and I found a website that has plastic!  I said to him that I think it gets that cute idea across without breaking the bank since he is dead set on these invitations.

    I was wondering if anybody has done the plastic and had any feedback on them.  We have to send about 80.

    Thanks :)

      also there are two bottle sizes... 7" or 8" what size did you use if you made these?

      thanks again

        We are using glass, but we don't have to mail because we are using them as favors.  You might search this section because I have seen several threads that discussed MIB's.

          Thanks I will definitely search this!  We actually ordered a sample from sand art supplies that comes with both to compare!

            I got almost everything from sand art supplies.  The only think I am using that I did not get from them is parchment paper, ribbon, sand dollars, and little flip flops.

              I'm looking into the same thing.  I have to ship most of mine (about 40).  Does anyone have any feedback regarding the quality of the plastic vs. glass?

                I just received the sample set I ordered from sand art supplies. It came with one plastic and one glass bottle. The plastic bottle is a little bit smaller than the glass but looks fine. Of course my FI wants to go with the glass... I went to the post office and got pricing on mailing them. The glass was approx. $2.63 and the plastic was $1.95

                  Did you add everything to the bottle to get the price of postage?  I know weight can make a difference in price.

                    We added the sand, sea shells, and glass bottle.... the only additional stuff will be the invite inside bottle, pull tag, and passport book... so it was a pretty fair estimate :)

                      I ordered both glass & plastic to see, and I agree, both look excellent.  I actually like the plastic better!
