I coach middle school cheerleaders and I wanted to make my girls a little something.
I knew I wanted to make water bottles with names so that drinks wouldn't be getting mixed up. I searched everywhere for bottles that were cheap. The Dollar Tree (like always) is were I found my answer. I purchased these little beauties for $1.00 each! Using my Cricut, I cut out vinyl letter and polka-dots. (What middle school girl doesn't love polka dots?)
The only bad thing about these water bottles from Dollar Tree was that they didn't have enough of them. I waited and waited for them to restock, but they never did. I started to look for other water bottles, but then ran into the same problem--they are way too expensive for me and my thrifty ways! Finally, one day while checking the clearance endcaps at target, I found these water bottles marked down to $0.48!!! So of course, I bought all they had and went to work finishing out this project.
