The milk bath goes well with the bottle theme and I just copied over the wrapper theme I was using on the milk cartons. When I run out of frappuccino bottles I'll go back to the cardstock milk cartons but for now it's the bottles. I used black nail polish on the top of the bottle to cover the brown of the lid. You could use acrylic paints but it might not say. You really need to use something more permanent. If you don't have black nail polish just cut your circles larger. I took the easy way out and used the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Stampin' Up! punches. For the dots, instead of using the eraser end of a pencil I used the Itty Bitty Backgrounds set by Stampin' Up! I also used the Label Classic and Very Punny sets by Stampin' Up! I embossed the frame and then cut it out. Stamp your cow on before you cut the frame, in the event you don't get the cow where you want it you didn't spend all that time cutting only to toss it. I ran the black card stock through the paper crimper and just taped everything in place. I used the gingham ribbon around the cap, tied a bow and glued it on. Filled the bottle with milk bath and I now have a great gift for someone special.

This is so cute! My cadette/senior Girl Scout troop is having a spa type sleepover and they are looking for recipes for "make it yourself" type spa items - I think I'm gonna steal this idea and make them bottles if I can find enough time and some good recipes!
