Seriously, how cute are these? (As promised last month, here are the dimensions of the water bottles that I gave out at the Stampin' UP! Party I hosted last month.) I have been wanting to try one of these for a while for something, I just couldn't find a reason to get it done! So, I made one just for fun about a month ago and then decided to give each person, who came to the Stampin' UP! Party that I hosted, one of these for a "thank you" gift. I think this would be a cute gift for a teacher at school or church...I actually almost made them for my kids' Bible class teachers but had already had something done (that you will see later) for that purpose. :)
Here are the dimensions for the base piece:
2 1/2 x 7 1/2
Score (while laying horizontally) at 2 inches
Circle punch a hole at the short end of the strip so that you can fit it over the top of the bottle. I used a circle punch that was 1 1/4 inch diameter.
The pink circle is about 3 inches in diameter.
The lemon is a stamp from Stampin' UP! that I punched out with the same circle punch that was used above. They are all adhered with dimentionals.
The leaves were stamped on white paper and cut out and placed under the lemons.
I cut slits on the side of the pink circle and tied ribbon through the slits and tied a bow on the back of the bottle. The lemonade pack is glued on with glue dots to keep it in place.
Have fun and design one however you would like. There are so many different flavors of the Crystal Light powders....think outside the box. For a tea packet, make a tea bag. For a raspberry packet, make a raspberry embellishment. You get the picture. Make one for someone today and remember, it is always homemade.
