How to make a Candy or Toy Wrap Using an Empty California Baby Container!

To get started you need: any empty California Baby bottle (2oz Shampoo & Bodywash, Bubble Bath, or Non-Talc Powder), tissue paper, scissors, string and toys or candy to place inside.

First make sure the container is clean, dry and sanitized. Place empty bottle in the top center of the tissue paper.

Neatly roll together until it
forms one long tube.


Using scissors, trim each
side to desired length.

Take the string and tie a
bow at each end.


Cut horizontal lines at each
end to decorate.






How to sanitize a California Baby bottle

A note from Jessica, founder and developer of California Baby: Modern living generates trash. At California Baby, we feel it is our obligation to work to reduce how much of our packaging makes its way into the land fill. So, in addition to utilizing green chemistry product formulas, natural and organic ingredients we also:
  • use plastic that is highly recyclable and most readily accepted by recycling facilities across the country
  • utilize as much post consumer content into our bottles as possible to reduce the need for 'virgin' material
  • utilize 'tree-free' paper and water based inks for our labels that can be recycled with paper or our HDPE plastic bottles—no need to remove, simply toss the bottle whole into the recycle bin
  • use smart bottle design for easier reuse including creative uses such as crafting projects that you can do right at home
