A medicine bottle makes a pretty good rubber stamp, but what else can you use?

For the photo above, I took the top 3 or 4 inches from a green soda bottle. I cut the neck of the bottle so that it looks like 4 leaves joined at the base. I pushed the leaves down, so the pointy parts of the leaves don't scratch peoples' hands.

The leaf "vein" lines are scratches I made with the tip of sharp scissors. If you want this effect and you're young enough to have coordination trouble with scissors and other sharp things, let an adult do it for you.

Can you make other pretty patterns with a drink bottle's plastic neck? Of course you can! Remember, Tessellations.org people will be happy if you show us what you do! Go try!
