Goldfish Holder - 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time

Good morning!  Today is another 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time.  REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!!!!  We have all made a 3-D project using ANY recycled item in our home!  I chose to use an empty Coffee Creamer bottle to make a little goldfish holder.  I few months ago I saw a few posts on Pinterest using the small bottles.  I used one of the large bottles  nicely cleaned out and the label peeled off.  We have so many of these empty containers in our recycle bin because my daughter likes her cup of creamer with a little coffee in the mornings, hehehe.

I also made some matching goody bags for my son's Laser Tag 9th Birthday Party.

Supplies I Used:
Teeny Tag Greetings, stamp and die set  -  My Creative Time
Large Coffee Creamer Bottle, cleaned and dry -  filled with goldfish crackers
Snorkel: School's Out, More Fish in the Sea  -  Cosmo Cricket
Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge for Tag cut at 3.75"
Life's A Beach Cricut Cartridge for Shark cut at 2.75"
True Black, Orange Zest and Lemon Tart Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Enamel Accents for Sharks Teeth
Sheer Ribbon and Zebra bag -  Michaels
EK Sucess Border Punch
Googly Eyes

I hope you enjoyed my post for today!  Please go over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of my DT sisters have created for your enjoyment!  Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous day!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

These are just sooo cute! That little shark is perfect for the treats! And I love the bottle that you used, we aren't coffee drinkers, but I think I might need to buy some creamer, just to have this bottle! :)
