Drink Bibs

This is a great summertime project - a perfect party favor! I used the "Summer Picnic" Designer Paper, Real Red card stock, and Pumpkin Pie card stock! The Real Red and Pumpkin Pie card stock is 5 X 3 and scored at 2". The "Summer Picnic" paper is 3 X 2-1/2 and scored at 1/2". The other piece of "Summer Picnic" paper is 3 X 2 - and that goes at the top of the bib where the hole is for the neck of the bottle! Place a piece of Sticky Strip at the score line to make sure the Crystal Light packet and straw won't fall out. The pouch is held in place by two red brads. I used other red brads just for embellishment! This is a great "punch" project - no pun intended - because you use the scallop punch, the 1-3/8" circle punch, the 1-1/4" circle punch, and the Photo Corners punch . I used the 1-3/8" circle punch for the neck of the bottle! Of course I used the "Tart and Tangy" stamp set for this project, as well as the "for you" from the "All Holidays" stamp set! The punched-out fruit piece is pop-dotted so it stands out! I also placed a 4" piece of our Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain ribbon around the cap of the bottle, as well as a 1-1/2" piece of the same ribbon as an embellishment behind the fruit! This project is a keeper! All products shown and used are from Stampin' Up, except of course the water bottles, which are Ozarka, and the Crystal Light Drink Mixes!
