Female Frapp Attacks!!!

Here is what kept me busy tonight!! I made up two female frapp gifts tonight and they were pretty much identical---but one was for a birthday gift Friday and one was for our hairdresser ~ just a little thank you for a Christmas gift but without the Christmas theme. Really no reason for that other than to say it was easier to make them almost the same rather than different!! *lol* I have a hair appointment Friday morning so I'll deliver it then.
As always, everything is SU! The ribbon is from the Winter mini ~ Flirty. The chocolate chip ribbon was fun to use in this project....I just hot glued it as I went around the bottle. The pink ribbon was fun to use too but it is not soo 'forgiving' when it came to finishing it off on the back of the bottle...the chocolate chip kinda all flowed together where the pink did not. The chocolate chip ribbon is more gathered where the pink is not....make sense? I wanted to add something more around the pink ribbon but when you insert the bottles back into the carton they get to be too 'bulky' so I was not able to add anymore without runnning into problems there. I also used the hot glue gun and attached grosgrain ribbons around the bottle caps too.
The paper is from the recollections designers series ~ that stuff is sooo pretty! I was able to cover both of the frapp boxes with just one sheet! Then of course pieces of the coordinating paper for the bottles and box sides with tons of that left over for the next projects *smiles*
The tops of the bottles were covered using the two circle punches and the 'riveting' stamp set. This is the only spot where the theme differed ---'enjoy your day' to 'thanks so much'.
The tag on the front of the box was done by gold embossing on the brushed gold card stock ~ I just love that look!! I then attached a piece of my *hoarded* hodge podge hardware and attached that to the wide organdy ribbon with a piece of gold cord.
Then the best part ~ I filled each bottle up with yummies!!! M&M's, Hersheys Kisses, Milk Duds and Jelly Beans
I hope they enjoy them ~ I enjoyed making them!
~TFL & Enjoy~

These are sold as 'Starbucks' frapp drinks and I purchased them at Wal-Mart. Then I drank them, ran them thru the dishwasher and created this with them ;o)
HTH's you --- I am sure they would be sold somewhere near you wouldnt they be? Happy Stampin'!!!! ~Teresa
