Design sheet


The plastic used to make milk bottles (or milk jugs) is quite strong and durable, it is also easy to cut and work with.

Follow the design on the attached picture to make a garden trowel or a small dustpan/shovel.
Use the remainder of the bottle to cut small rectangular labels with pointy ends for your plants.
