Mailbag Monday: A Bottle Full of Fun

A search for clever snail mail ideas on Pinterest yields several pins showing clear plastic bottles filled with a variety of items. Here’s one that’s part of the Snail Mail Project on the Sweet Tea Paperie site.

As soon as I saw this pin, my imagination kicked into high gear, resulting in a long list of surprises I could stuff into a bottle. But who would be the recipient, and what would fill her bottle?

Soon after, I was scrolling though my Facebook feed and got my answer. A dear friend of mine often posts favorite portions of Scripture, showing the colorfully highlighted verses in her Bible.

I had a backup stash of brightly colored highlighters, so I grabbed several and poked them inside a sturdy Dasani water bottle. To make sure they didn’t rattle too much, I filled the space at the top with some Easter grass I had on hand.

I added mailing labels on one side. On the back, I included a note explaining what the highlighters were for.

I had such fun preparing this surprise in a bottle and will be sending more in the future.

If you were to send someone a fun-filled bottle, what might you put inside?
