This is such a cute and practical idea! Kids will love it, and since bottles are in ample supply, I could see doing this as a classroom art project, or to give to kids as gifts from their teacher, or as a brownie Girl Scout type project! So much fun to make and to share. Thank you for this clever and inspiring idea!
