This do-it-yourself project is a fun way to send a friend or loved one a keepsake filled with notes, pictures, music, and more!
I created this DIY message in a bottle to send with my boyfriend on his trip out-of state. He travels quite often, so I wanted to give him something to remind him of me when we were apart. I included lots of pictures of us that he didn’t already have, a sweet message, fun quotes, bible scriptures, and music that we both enjoyed. I gave him his message in a bottle the day before he left, so he could take it with him on the plane and enjoy it while traveling! He loved it! This DIY project is also fun for friends and family who are traveling, or are far away. Mailing it would make for a fun surprise! -Megan Smith
