How to make Plastic Bottle Camellia Sasanqua Flower SDCO says: We did this... and learned that acrilic paint is important. The kids non-toxic, washable, eatable, everything-able paint does not want to stick to plastic!
I made this book page art print from a very old (falling apart) hardbound Treasure Island. The hardcover will become a iPad case, and the illustrations were saved for later, but I found some line art pirates' ships and printed them directly onto the page with the phrase. We put them into an old frame and it came out pretty good. These could definitely be gifts.
Plastic Bottle Apples SDCO Says: We tried this... but painted since we had no red paper... it looked ok, but you really need acrulic paint to stick to plastic, and the plastic is strong! We had to use a drill to make a hole for the stems.
