Enter the vitamin bottle!
Yes, that is a vitamin bottle in a cape, super heroes (almost) always wear capes!
Step 1: Supplies!
Sharpie ~ not pictured, you know what it looks like
Knife, steak knife or utility knife, I ended up using both
For decorating, I used sticky shelf paper, tracing paper, transparent tape, go wild . . .or not
Step 2: Mark & Cut
These bottles are made of thick plastic, be careful!
Remember to stop bleeding apply steady pressure, blah, ba blah ba blah
We mostly needed a slight downward facing angle, I added the straight up and down cut because I could
Step 3: How It Works
Can be used portrait or landscape, downward facing or tilted back
The book/tablet tended to lean to one side, so I used the cap from the vitamin bottle to level the 'screen'
Step 4: Result!
*As noted before, I'm doing this project long distance, so I acted as my sister's 'stand in', in the photo.
I scooted way down in my chair to mimic a lying down posture and had dining table top substitute for her adjustable height, overbed table.
Step 5: Decorate! and Done!
I traced the vitamin label, then transferred this to the shelf paper
After sticking the paper to the bottle, I cut the paper blocking the tablet holding slots off with a utility knife
I used the transparent tape to make sure the edges were stuck down
Ta Dah! Now to find a mailing envelope!
