a lot of the written stuff on bottles is actually stickers.  Then there is gummy residue... but the ones that are printed onto the bottles come off pretty well with a light sanding.

Also, it could be kind of cool and funky to leave the words on... who knows.  Good luck!

Jingle jingle!  Make a "money tree" like you see at some Chinese restaurants (except theirs are jade discs hanging from the tree).  It's essentially a little fake tree with coins hanging from the branches.  It's said to bring money into the home or business that it's placed in.  Just make sure not to put it by your door so all those good money vibes won't fly out the door!

I saw a night stand that had bottle caps glued to the sides.  The night stand was hideous before the bottle cap makeover, but it looked great afterward.  I think they even used bottle caps as drawer pulls.

Take some paper, cut it into bits small enough to fit into the tin, stamp or print people's initials, little peppermints, whatever onto a corner to make cute note cards, pop a tiny pencil in the tin, and give as small gifts.

I'm thinkin' that it would be a cool way to make a rag rug or pillow.  Cut 'em into strips, mark a pattern on some of that quarter inch canvas stuff, and latch-hook to your little heart's content!

Maybe a little strange and hokey, but why don't ya unravel all that tape.  You can make a wire frame for a wreath or something and stick it on there.  Add some 80's stuff and make an "homage" to the 80's...  Use the outsides for that neat little notebook thingie.  Or, use the innards to cover a pinata.  Use the insides as tinsel on a Christmas Tree (then make ornaments out of the outsides and covers).  Knit or crochet them into some artsy thing.  Weave them into some plasticy fabric and make a wallet.  Make a fringy door curtain thing.  Attach the outsides to the top as a neat border.  Make tassels for your bike.  braid them and use them as shoestrings.  Braid more and use as a belt.  Braid more and use as a doggie leash.  Make a big pile and jump in it... that sounds fun to me... but I'm only 6 years old at heart, lol
