Water bottles

March is fast approaching and I'm starting to get ready for my next class. I whipped these up last night in about 45 minutes. I got my daughter the SU "All in the Family" and "Family Accessories" sets for Christmas. She hated them. Can you imagine?? Well..they've been sitting here in my workshop unopened since December. I finally decided to bust them open and get them mounted a few days ago. I'm so glad that I did! These guys are just TOO cute!

This project was a great way to use up tons of scraps. The main piece is 2 1/4 x 8 1/2 of thick cardstock. I scored the long side at 2 1/4 to make a square on the top and folded it over. Then I used my 1 3/8 circle punch to make a hole for it to fit over the lid. After that, I just kind of played around and here are the finished products. I still have a few more to make, but thought I'd share what I have so far.
