This is one of those “so easy I hate to call it a “tutorial’ tutorials.” Baby B loves sharks and wants a shark theme for her next birthday. While that’s months away, I figured Shark Week would be a great time to brainstorm and test out some ideas, you know … six months in advance. So I give you: shark fin soda bottles!
- Blue soda (I used Jones Soda)
- Blue scrapbooking cardstock
1 – Free-hand cut one shark fin, making it about 3 inches long by 2 inches high. Leave a little extra at the base of the fin.
2 – Use your first fin as a template to cut out as many other fins as you need.
3 – Fold the little extra over, creating a straight crease.
4 – Peel the label off your bottle. Apply gluestick to the outside of the folded part of your fin, and press this to your bottle.
And that’s it! I really don’t think I’ve ever published a four-step tutorial before, but when you hit on an idea that is easy, cheap and cute, you go for it.
Happy Shark Week!
