What a neat idea! I could use a bunch of these for my classroom, and I have a bottle or two just about empty. Thanks for sharing the link with the pictures of how it's done. I think I need to go and have a glass of milk so I can empty the milk jug... Smiley

Thanks Smiley I've used the oil bottle because it's thicker plastic and has a larger handle than milk bottles.
I used a hobby knife instead of scissors.

Post the links when you've made them from milk bottles? Smiley
