Valentine Water Bottles

Happy Friday to you!
I have a fun Valentine's project to share with you. I have some candy to pass out to Cortney's class, but you know how you get really thirsty when  you eat chocolate?   why not pass out some pretty water bottles to accompany those sweets? I think my family thought I was crazy....the ultimate sign of wackiness. My husband said, "Honey  they are cute, but why in God's name would you decorate a water bottle?"   "Because I can", I answered. ;)  
And I did. 



I used my Silhouette to cut the straw decorations.  I used various papers and mixed and matched the patterns for a fun eclectic feel.  I added various buttons tied with string to the centers. 
I made a little "pocket" for the straw to rest in and added an SRM sticker over it.
I used a circle punch to decorate the tops too.....cause I am that nutty!  But I say, "Go Big or go home!"  


I don't know if the kids will love them as much as I loved making them, but I am really pleased with the result.  And of course now I am thinking of other "beverages" to alter! LOL!  

That's all I have today......still no cheer leading photos.  Too busy with haircuts, therapy, and cheer leading games to edit anything.  But I DO have a bit of good news!  Cort's school is starting a cheerleading group and asked if Cort would like to join.  She was so excited and of course said, "YES!"  She got her big, wide smile, and said to me, "I be on TWO teams!" 
*sigh*
Sweet, sweet girl of mine.

haha! I'm totally on the same page with you! I decorated some flavored waters for my daughters bridal shower and my hubby thought I was crazy. I thought they were so cute all lined up in their pretty~ness. :)
