I just made these super cute mini favor bottles for guests to collect sand at the beach to keep as a memory of the trip. I'm not sure how I'm going to package them yet but they're going to go in the OOT bags. I ordered the jars from china on eBay. I paid right around $5 for 20 of them. The starfish charms are also from eBay. I think it was about $5 for 90 so there are plenty left over for another project.
Here's a list of everything I used: Jars Starfish charms Wax cotton cord (from michaels, left over from my invites) 1/16 inch hole punch (also from michaels, left over from invites) Paper and printer Scissors Needle and thread Thimble Small bowl for collecting scraps (not necessary but I made my in bed so cleanup was a breeze) I started by printing the message on plain paper using the Avery 5160 label template in word.
Next, cut the strips of paper to size. This is a bit tricky. If you make them too big the cork will squish the message. Too small and they will turn sideways and be difficult to remove. I measured the paper against the length of the bottle right past the neck.
(Please excuse my un-manicured nails!)
Next, punch your message at the tail end:
