DIY Snack Box

  • Two identical sized plastic bottles (12 oz soda or 16 oz water)
  • Zipper about 7 inches long
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors or exacto knife


  • Step 1. Measure a couple of inches up from the bottom of the bottles to find where the circumference is about 6 ¼ – 6 ¾ inches. Cut both bottles at this point. TIP: You can make one larger and one smaller or make both the same size.
