Picture of Monster container with bottles
Hello!, I go to explain how to build a monster container while we recycle plastic bottles =]
We need:
-Two plastic bottles of the same size
-A Zipper (the size depends on the thickness of the bottle) preferably red or similar
-Contact glue
-Scissors
-Cutter
-Sticker paper (for eyes)
-A pencil and a marker

And we are ready to start!

Step 1: Prepare bottles

First clean the inside of the bottle with water. Then, make a mark with the cutter around the bottle, at the height that you want to cut. If you need, use the marker to mark the cutting area. Then cut the bottle for a few cm above the mark (so you can do it with more freedom). Now you can cut along the mark easily.
Repeat this with the other bottle.

Step 2: Paste the pieces

Take contact glue on the edge of the fabric of the zipper (must be on the edge so that the zipper can be moved later). Take glue on the edge of the bottle too. Wait about 10 minutes.
Now join the pieces. Paste the zipper with one bottle (carefully) and then with the other bottle (it will cost a bit more).
For the eyes, draw two ellipses in the sticker paper (the size you want) and cut them out. Draw a black circle as a pupil with a mark and paste it into the bottle.
Leave a few hours without touching the monster. So contact glue dry completely.

thank you for the great idea! :)

You can also attach ears and make it look like a dog or cat and put pet food in it!

I wouldn't want to put dead mice in there.... (snake)

c27_mari (author)  matterhorn15 years ago
The truth is that my grandmother gave to me, she had a full bag of zippers
Anyway, if you don't find in your house you can buy (it isn't expensive)

Clever design!
shooby shooby5 years ago
how 'bout a "tongue" flap, circular in shape, to separate it into two compartments?
c27_mari (author)  shooby5 years ago
I don't know what you mean! Make one and take a picture! (if you want =])
shooby c27_mari5 years ago
Let me explain. You have, along the zipper-line, a circular shape of a certain diameter. Imagine a circle of that diameter, inserted in between the two plastic bottle parts, and attached where the two plastic bottle parts pivot.
c27_mari (author)  shooby5 years ago
OK! I understand, and it's a very good idea. If I make another (which I will, I already have orders!) I will try.
cute!
