Christmas Gift Idea - Recycled Starbucks Frappuccino Bottle

Hello Crafters,
For my first posted project on my blog I would like to share the Christmas presents I made for my nieces/nephews/godchildren this year.   They are all older now and so they get the "boring" cash, but I can't just give them their "boring" cash in a envelope.  I have to come up with a fun and creative way to give it to them and every year they wonder what auntie it going to do.   
This year I decided to hide the money by candy in a recycled Starbucks Frappuccino bottle.  I used the cute reindeer from KaDoodle Bug Designs Deck the Halls file to decorate the bottle.  

Filled the bottle 2/3 of the way with M&M's or Milk Duds and then took a roll of money placed in a plastic treat bag in the center so the candy surrounded the money and couldn't see it.  

I stamped some of the tags with one of the fun sayings from the Jaded Blossom's Reindeer Poop Stamp set and tied it to the bottles with the Milk Duds. For the bottles with the red M&M's I typed a poem I found on Pinterest and did a print and cut tag.
Thanks for stopping by.
