Message in a Bottle-Happy Birthday Greetings

If you are looking for an unusual, yet fun way to send birthday or other greetings to someone special, why not send them a message in a bottle?  You can mail them.  Yes, I said you can mail them.  The post master may look at you a little funny, but they will accept plastic bottles addressed for mailing.  It will cost you $1.35 to mail a 16 oz or smaller plastic bottle.  And it is my experience that they arrive in good condition.  But I would suggest using a heavier weight plastic bottle so it is not crushed in transit.  This is a good way to recycle and re-use also!

I have been giving my Stamp Club members Happy Birthday wishes in a bottle all year long.  I created a special message featuring the great quote below by Dr. Seuss by using My Digital Studio.  After printing it out and adding my own personal sentiment, I roll it up and tie a pretty ribbon around it.  I fill a plastic bottle with confetti and put the message inside.  I then print a label for the front, and I'm done.  It is so easy, yet it is one of those projects that brings a smile.

Here is the message I created in My Digital Studio.  I love adding quotes, poems or song lyrics to my projects.    A quick internet search will give you a variety of sources. My favorites are quotes from Winnie the Pooh and Dr. Seuss!
