Here are the instructions for the water bottle pouch. These are great gift ideas for friends, teachers, mailman or mail ladies in my case, delivery guys, party favors, etc. :
You will need:
Card stock of your choice
1 1/4" circle punch
1 3/8" circle punch
Stamped or printed image for initial or saying
Cut cardstock lengthwise at 8 3/4" and cut the width
a little over 2 1/4".
Crease CS using your stylus or scoring blade at 2 1/2"
Turn cs around to other end at score at 2 1/4"
Punch out flower from coordinating cs using flower punch.
Glue flower to the 2 1/2" scored side of cs strip.
using a pencil place a dot in the center of the flower so when you punch out the center of it, you have have a guide as to where to place the punch.
Center the 1 3/8" circle punch around your dot as best you can. Punch through both pieces.
This is what it will look like after you have ounched through it. Mine isn't perfectly centered but I promise it will not matter!
Punch one flower using flower punch
one circle using 1 3/8" punch
one image using 1 1/4" punch
Glue all three pieces togther and adhere to the bottom strip of cs using a dimensional or glue dot. Using a pencil mark outer edges of cs, this is where the brads will go.
Punch hole using 1/16" punch. Insert brads in both corners.
This is your finished Product! I know it seems like alot of steps, but once you complete your first bottle, the rest will be so easy. For a larger quantity of bottles, you will want to punch all your circles, flowers, etc. at one time then assemble. Good Luck and have Fun!
