The below post was taken from the Bottles of Hope messageboard on Delphi. Posted by Diane Black from www.glassattic.com
There is loads of information on making BOH (and stoppers, etc) and on obtaining bottles, etc., as well as many-many examples for inspiration on the BOH page of my website:
Here is the “Table of Contents” for that page:
General info re BOH

Bottles of Hope are small glass bottles covered with polymer clay and given to cancer patients. They symbolize a wish and a hope for health
This project was started in 1999 by a Rhode Island cancer survivor and has spread internationally. Bottles are made by artists, students, survivors, seniors and many more who volunteer their time and love.
This blog was created as a place to get information and to share your experiences with the Bottles of Hope project.
A word about the project: Our hope is that this project remains grass roots: a one to one sharing of art and love. The Bottles of Hope should NEVER be sold; they are to be given freely to cancer patients to bring hope to their lives.
