EDITED TO ADD.......Well, this is just what I get for posting after midnight. I completely left out all the details of this project, like how I did it and what materials we used. Those seem to be important to y'all so here goes.....and I apologize for my loserness! I used vinyl to cut out the dots and lettering. The font I used is called French Script, which I cut out using my cricut and the Sure Cuts Alot software. And for those of you concerned with how these will hold up...the vinyl is very sturdy. If you hand wash these, which you should with aluminum bottles anyway, they will be fine. I've used vinyl on mailboxes, license plates, etc and they have held up great.
You could make some with your school colors, like this one.
Or sass it up real good with this fun hot pink bottle complete with fancy monogram and bright colored dots.
They sell water bottles almost identical to these at a local boutique for $20 each. We made these for $1 a piece. You really can't beat that for a super cute personalized gift!
And for all the coffee and hot chocolate lovers....monogram a mug. What teacher wouldn't love to carry around her very own personalized mug at school everyday? I am really digging these fast, fun, extremely affordable gift ideas. And if you're like me and have yet to start on your end of the year teacher gifts....this is the way to go. Thanks, Emmie for sharing this fantabulous idea with us!
