We have a winner

but first I am going to tell you what I did and how I did it. After cleaning out the soda bottle and letting it dry I used an exacto knife to cut the label fairly close to the seam. I peeled it back a bit and used the exacto knife again to cut a hole into the side of the bottle. I stuffed tissue paper and the gift (I'll reveal that in a minute) inside, used sticky strip to stick the label back and then used a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock to make the wrap (which wasn't actually long enough which is why it was pieced). His reaction= he was stumped and he said, "but I can't tear up your stamping" which I thought was funny. I told him it was okay so he tore off the wrapper and still couldn't figure it out. Until I peeled back the Dt. Mtn. Dew label and showed him the slit. He tried for about 10 minutes before giving up. The present... a Home Depot gift card. He works in construction and has to buy his own tools plus, he and my sister just bought a house and that's all he wanted.

So, the random winner who wins the magazine, the snowflakes, a 2 pack of Autumn Leaves stamps, and a $1 stamp from Michaels with a bird and the phrase "A little bird told me.." I have had it for a while and never used it so in my attempt to get organized I figure I'll pass it on. Anyway, the winner is.....

Since your stamping indicates a tool of some sort, I'm guessing that you 'morphed' a large double-handled plyers or wrench of some sort into the bottle. I can't image that he didn't tear the paper off to see how you managed to get it in there because a slit or cut in the bottle would give it away. Sounded like a fun activity! Now, I'm very anxious to hear what it was and how you did it!

Lori- tell me if you want 4 white snowflakes or 2 silver and 2 white.

And, we had one guesser who was pretty close to how I did and she did say she thought it was a gift card so without further ado- give it up for....
