More Quick Gift Ideas and a Tutorial

Here's another project many have seen but may be new to some of you. I've re-created the water bottle card for Christmas gifting. A way to refresh someone's body and spirit!

This cover fits a Zephyrhills water bottle, just adjust the length to fit whatever water you use.

Here's how to do it:

Supply List:

water bottle
drink packet
Cardstock
DP
1-1/4" circle punch
scallop circle punch
Scor-Tape
2 brads
Mono Multi glue
double sided tape

Cut solid cardstock 3" x 11"
Score at 2"
Turn and score again at 2-1/2"

For the top:
Fold the 2" scored side back (away from you) and the 2-1/2" scored side up.
Punch the 2" end with the 1-1/4" punch
Punch a Scalloped circle
Dab Mono Multi on the scallops only, leaving the center clean

Hold the cardstock to the light and place the scallop circle over the 1-1/4" hole. Press down and punch out the hole with the 1-1/4" punch again. (this is the easiest way I've found to make sure the scallop is centered)

For the center:
Cut the solid cardstock panel - 2-7/8" x 5-3/8"
Cut the DP - 2-3/4" x 5-1/4"
Adhere to main panel with double sided tape

For the bottom pocket:
Cut the colored solid - 2-1/2" x 2-1/4"
Cut the image panel - 2-1/4" x 2"
Adhere with double sided tape

Attach brads to top corners of the bottom pocket
Add your drink mix and bless someone with a soul and thirst quencher!
