Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will need:
- Plastic water or milk jug
- Rubber band
- Paint (with color of your choice)
- paint brushes
Step 2: Remove Bottle's Sticker, Cap and Empty Out the Jug
You can transfer the liquids from the jug into a reusable water bottle or reusable filter pot
Step 3: Trace a Line Where the Spout and Handle Align and Cute It Off With Scissors
This will be excess parts that will not longer be needed
Step 4: Trace Marks Where the Two Flaps Will Be and Cut Along the Solid Lines
The dotted lines are where the flaps will crease and fold over. It's also good to round the edges of the flaps so they are not sharp
Step 5: Trace Lines on Both Sides of the Tall Backing and Cut Along the Solid Lines
This is to cut off excess plastic that does support or cover the flaps
Step 6: Shape the Tall Backing Around the Flaps in the Shape of an Arch/shell and Cut Along Dotted Lines
This is so the top will close easier and be held down with a rubber band
Step 7: Place Paint or Any Design You Wish to Cover the Top of the Case
This is to add your own style or flair to the container
Step 8: Place Rubber Band Around the Top and Bottom of Case
This is your final product! :)
