– Empty Vanilla Extract Bottle – Old red & white wrapping paper – Thin cardboard packaging – Scraps of ribbon or twine – Scissors – Gift Tag Punch (optional)
Step 1: Prepare your Vanilla Extract Bottle
The first thing I did was remove the label and the little gold ring below the bottle cap – I just snapped it off with my scissors.
Step 2: Cut out Tiny Heart Shapes
To speed up the process I folded my paper over several times so that I was cutting out multiple layers of hearts at once.
Step 3: Put your Hearts in the Bottle
Just stuff your tiny hearts into the bottle and when you are happy with how full it is (I did about 3/4 of the way up the fattest part of the bottle), shut the lid!
Step 4: Add a Gift Tag
The last thing I did was create a gift tag/message tag using some thin cardboard packaging. Mine was a lavender colour but you could use white or red packaging if you have it or even brown cardboard if you like the crafty brown paper look.
