Love Treats: Upcycled Starbucks Drink 4 Pack

I can't believe I completely forgot to share this cute project I made two years ago, last February! I planned on waiting until next month but can't wait any longer. I seriously love Starbucks bottled Frappuccino drinks; I'll admit to buying them by the case. But since I had a plan, for this I bought a four pack to alter...after drinking their deliciousness all up first☺ To transform the empty bottles and container, start by rinsing and cleaning out the bottles. Peel off the labels. Then paint the inside and outside of the box. I used several layers because I didn't prep them with gesso, which is kind of like artist primer.
Then have fun decorating, embellishing, and collaging the sides of the container with stamps and paper pieced pictures. Seal everything with a layer of mod podge.
We gave this fun gift to, two little friends of ours, I put their picture with ER on one side. I like to personalize things whenever possible.
Don't forget to cuten up the caps; add some mod podge to seal it up. Tie on some ribbons and fill 'em up with treats. Now you have a super sweet and extra special Valentine.

So cute! I always love all the details you put into a project. I think this would be nice to do with the drinks still inside too. Maybe for a teacher gift. I have never tried one of the bottled Frapaccinos...I am afraid I might become hooked!

I absolutely LOVE this idea! You are way too creative. I just might try this. I usually get things for the grandparents and godparents from the girls for Valentine's Day, this would be perfect!
