Have a cool summer send off!!!

I made this for my students last year because I was looking for an inexpensive way to send my students off for the summer (besides creating a summer practice book LOL!!)  I thought sending them off with a bottle of water would be a great way for them to cool off! 
 I purchased a case of 24 water bottles which cost me $3.99 and then I decorated the bottle-super cheap, super fast, and a great gift for all students!  You could add a pack of Kool-Aid, Crystal Light, or Propel but I highly recommend making sure your students do not have any allergies to color dyes.  I used my Gypsy to weld the letters together -if you don't have a Gypsy or you don't have a lot of time to spare, try printing your logo or saying on large mailing address labels.  You can just peel and stick!  I also used a really good ribbon so if you are looking to go very inexpensive you can purchase some wrapping paper ribbon at the dollar store.  You could always make a few of these for students and pass them out for field day. 

Here are the materials that I used for this project:

Create a Critter cartridge-for the sun (cut at 2 inches)
Cricut Classic Font-used for the words and welded on the Gypsy
Peachy Keen stamp set "Snow Cutie Face" Assortment
Memento black ink pad
Copic Markers
White gel pen
pop dots
ATG gun and adhesive
