Valentine in a Bottle

I’ve heard of using empty beverage containers as fun ways to mail something and thought this would be a fun way to send a Valentine to someone very special in my life. I think this would be so much fun to receive in my mailbox and am sure she'll be thrilled.

The colors, hearts and LOTS of pieces inspired my bottle filled with love.

Creative Inspirations #47 ~ Anyone for Leftovers? (Use scraps - all the 'fillings' in my bottle were punched from scraps.)
365 Cards Day 311 ~ Find a Substitute (Substitute a word with an image; my secret message has a heart for the word love.)

My Creation
Here's the rolled up secret message tucked in the bottle.
And a close up of the pile of punched love to cushion the note.
