If you have wandered through the soda aisle anytime recently, you may have been caught off-guard by Coca-Cola’s new Diet Coke IT’S MINE glass bottles.  They are beautifully designed bottles with bold colors and unique patterns.

In fact, each pattern is so unique that every bottle is different.  There are no two bottles exactly alike.  I’m so impressed that they were able to create an algorithm that designed such unique bottles. It’s pretty inspiring; and makes me want to find ways to be a little more creative.  So today, I’m using these bottles as my medium and creating some very original  bookends. If you want to craft along, you can find the bottles in your local Walmart as pictured below.

Right now there’s a cool Diet Coke Picture Mosaic hosted on the Coca-Cola Share Refreshing Ideas website. Anyone can upload the crafts they have done with their original bottles.  My favorite bottle is the one on the right above.  I love how it reminds me of a piece of modern art. I also appreciate how the bottles are a symbolic representation celebrating individuality.  If you want to get involved with the “Share Your Masterpiece” movement, check out #ItsMyMasterpiece on social media and then head over to share your own ideas.
