I coach middle school cheerleaders and like to make my girls something each season.
During football cheer I made these Cheer Frames for my girls.
For the girls basketball cheer season, I made these Water Bottles.
The girls really liked them, but they were plastic and a couple of girls dropped them throughout the season and broke them. They were only a dollar, but I was a little disappointed and knew I would need something more durable for next time.
We are now in our last season, which is boys basketball. I wanted to do the water bottle thing again, because several students had requested to get one.
While browsing at Dollar Tree one day, I found these beauties.
They are aluminum and were only $1.00 each!
I used my Cricut, SCAL, and white contact paper.
(Money Saver Tip: White contact paper works just as well as white vinyl and is a ton cheaper!)
I put each girl's name on them in different fonts.
On one side is the name...
...and on the other side is a megaphone.
(Cricut cartridge: Locker Talk)
I have a few more to make, but I ran out of water bottles.
So, I am praying that I can find more at Dollar Tree.
I'm going to make one for myself and the other other coach as well.
If I have time, I am going to make cute tags for them to tie on with ribbon. I'll be sure to post, if it happens.
I love how they turned out and I think the girls will like them too!
