Glad I could be of help...

It seems rather evident that a custom sized salt pour gimmick could be constructed using the same technique... but leave the neck on one of the two bottle halves. Or if you don't mind a flattened bottom on the gimmick... use just one bottle.

On related note, Simplex (double ended, straight sided, no ribbon, dye tube) silk gimmicks are constructed similarly using the outer shell of two glue stick containers.

Once you learn to make your own gimmicks, you are no longer at the mercy of the magical marketplace.

( Of course, maybe I take this too far... I even make and dye my own silks!)
