A Special Birthday Present

By July 7, 2009November 23rd, 2016Family

Our son, Casey, turned 12, at the end of June. When I saw the  Father’s Day gift bottles that Amy over at MomAdvice made for her Notebook Experiment, I knew he would love some like it.


My middle son, Nick and his girlfriend helped me with them. We started with a 6 pack of Orange Crush bottles.


Wrapped the box with birthday wrapping paper


I printed some clip art birthday designs like this one, and the kids glued them onto a piece of scrapbook paper and then glued them onto the bottle



We filled each bottle with some of Casey’s favorite candy and gum.


Then tied a coupon with a curling ribbon to each bottle. Some of them had a trip to the beach, video store, dinner out etc.



We put Air Heads in this bottle, we had to fold them a bit to make them fit. We also had to do the same for the gum. But, they turned out fine.


This is by far the best birthday present I have given in a long time.
