When Pete and I were at the grocery store over the weekend, he grabbed me a Starbucks Frappuccino. It wasn't the same, but it was close. I saved the bottle afterwards because I just knew there was a craft in it somewhere. And then it hit me: A Kisses From The Mrs. wedding craft.
It was really easy to put together and, if you're a Starbucks drinker, it gives you an excuse to pick them up when you're shopping. You're not buying coffee, you're buying crafting bottles. Sounds good to me anyway.
These would be perfect to give to your vendors as a thank you gift. Whoever does your hair, makeup, alters your dress, those sort of people usually get a thank you, but wouldn't it be nice to give them something extra? This Kisses From The Mrs. bottle is perfect since the thank you is really coming from just you and not you and your groom. You could even add these to your bridesmaids' gifts too (I just wouldn't make it a full gift for your bridesmaids).
Kisses From The Mrs. Wedding Craft
What You'll Need:
- Starbucks Frappuccino bottle, 13.7oz.
- Hershey's Kisses, 9oz. bag
- Cardstock (in your wedding color)
- Felt pen
- Strip of tulle (mine was 12-inches by 3-inches ... and flying away. I wanted to do this craft outside for a change of scenery and it was windier than I anticipated. As I tried to snap the photo, the wind blew the tulle. You can see it flying away in the top right corner of the photo. I had to chase it. Luckily, I have cat like reflexes and caught it before I had to run down four flights of stairs after it.)
What You'll Do:
Pull the labels off the bottle and wash it. Personally, I use a little olive oil and elbow grease to take off the sticky backing. Really. Put a bit of olive oil on a paper towel and scrub, hard, and the stickiness will come off. Be sure to wash and dry the bottle after.
Fill the bottle with the Hershey's Kisses. The 9oz. bag filled the 13.7oz. bottle perfectly, leaving one left over. Feel free to eat that one. Or don't. It's up to you.
Trace the Starbucks Frappuccino bottle cap, upside down, twice.
Cut out the circles. Tape one down to the top of the Starbucks Frappuccino cap (since you don't really want the logo showing).
On the second circle, write: Kisses from the Mrs.
Twist a section (in the middle) of the tulle to make it tight. Tape that to the circle you wrote on.
Tie it around the bottle's neck.
I really love how this came out. I would absolutely love to get this as a thank you gift, so I definitely support you giving these out.
If you want, you could actually write "Kisses From The Almost Mrs." on them and give them out as bridal shower favors. That would definitely be cute (and would give you a good excuse to drink a hefty amount of Starbucks).
