Water Bottle Pouches

I love giving little gifts away to my friends. And as soon as I saw these Flavor Pouch Holders that Rose Ann posted for Lizzie Anne Designs, I knew I wanted to do something similar for my TOPS girls. I rummaged through my DP scraps and followed Rose Ann's directions pretty much to the letter. But instead of stamping an image for the center of my scalloped circle, I printed motivational quotes and punched them out. Each one is different... kinda like fortune cookies. hehehe
Here is my favorite quote:
The difference between Try and Triumph is just a little UMPH!
OH.. and FYI...water is on sale this week at Walgreen's for $3.99 a case (with coupon) and the boxes of Wyler's powdered drink packets are only $1 at Family Dollar. That makes these pretty cheap to make for a group! I think I'll be making them for my Bunco friends too.
If you have any other cool inexpensive gift ideas like this to share, I'd love to hear them!
