Skull & Crossbones Invitations in A Bottle
Love these invitations!
I'm glad that I read the other reviews before using these. The labels started peeling off overnight so I'm glad I didn't ship them the same day I labelled them. I just taped everything on with clear packaging tape. I also wrote on the label to open at the bottom of the bottle and I put one piece of tape to keep the bottom in place. Everyone LOVED these invites, they are so cute! It cost 1.71$ each to send them USPS.

These where so darn cute, easy to assemble and fun to hand out. Some almost didn't want to open them because it was so impressive. My son had a blast helping put together and giving to his friends.

Still Cute, but Could Use Improvements
Unfortunately, there are no instructions with these invitations so you have to decide how to open and assembly them, specifically whether the label should be placed on the outside or left on the inside and whether to remove the shrink wrap on the cork, and where to put the skull and cross bones sticker. The invitation itself was much smaller than expected (3.5" x 5"). The sand should be a light brown color and the eye patch should at least have a reasonable length elastic cord to allow it to be worn, even though it is made of paper. The silver twist tie around the invitation fell apart, so I just tied the scrolls up with twine. Overall, it is a cute invitation but could just use some minor improvements.

I got this for my little ones 2nd pirate birthday and they where PERFECT!!! Super cute, easy to open and all the adults loved them as well as the kids. The only problem i had was with the little packet of sand, I couldn't decide if I wanted to open it and pour it into the bottle or leave it in the packet. Over all I was very happy with this purchase and if I ever have another pirate themed party this is a must have!

Great invitations - definately different! Love them. However, postage is $1.95 each to send USPS. Just FYI.

Absolutely adorable! The perfect beginning to my son's pirate birthday party. He was eager to help with assembly and his friends (and their moms too!) thought the invites were very original. Perfect for a 5 year old! The inside invite was a little small to write on, but you could easily craft something on the computer to include instead.

looking forward to our party
invitations are so cute!!! I love that all the kids will have an eye patch! Only negative is that the eye patch string was not long enough...

I had so many compliments on these invitations! They were very easy to assemble, I used tape for the labels just incase based on other reviews. They are slightly expensive since the eye patch is paper and small - just for show, and the sand is such a small amount and a really dark color - i didnt use it; (plus i dont know how well the US postal service would appreciate an unknown substance if it spilled out.)

Could be better
I read the reviews and thought that although a little work to put together this would be a fun item for my son's Kindergarten class.
The bottles were cute and the address label did stay attached.
The ring was popular with the kids.
The eye patch was made of paper and tore before a single kid put it on. The elastic was way too small even for my youngest child let alone the kindergarten class.
We skipped the sand in the bottom of the bottle, but only because we delivering to a classroom and thought the teacher would be happier if she didn't have to pick up all of the sand.
I tried to use the invitations, but they were just too small for the address and other particulars. I found it easier to print my own, roll and tie with twine. Everything fit conveniently in the bottle. Would I buy again? Only if I wanted the plastic bottles.
