{Gifts} Krazy Kool Summer Gift with printable

Sometimes I have reeeeeeeeally good ideas.

Other times, I just copy other people's reeeeeeeeeally good ideas and transform them to make them my own.

This is an example of the latter.

I needed a gift for Olivia's classmates for the End-of-the-Year. Along with my sister, we scoured the internet Pinterest and happened upon this cute idea.

Totally precious.

So, we went about tracking down the necessary cups, which included trips to Greenville, Greer, Spartanburg and Boiling Springs. Just saying.

I decided I wanted more colorful tags since I had multiple colors of bottles. I also liked the taller bottles better than the short ones and I only wanted a single serving of Kool-Aid instead of a whole packet.

So I created my own tag. Printed them, cut them out, punched a hole and attached them with ribbon to the straw of the cup.





I only had to do that 20 times (*whew*) and they were ready to roll.




And, again, just because I love my blog friends, I made the tags into a printable for you to download and use!

Click here to find the download. Once you download, simply print on cardstock or heavy paper (8.5x11), cut out the tags and adhere them however you like (I tied mine with ribbons).

Edited to add: I've had lots of complaints about Scribd now taking subscriptions in order to download the printable. When I first uploaded it last year, everything was free. So, in an attempt to get the printable out at no cost, I am uploading it here. Simply right click and save to your computer and then print as usual. The printable is on a standard 8.5x11 sheet of paper and I suggest printing on heavy cardstock. Email me if you can't get the download to work! (leightheo (at) gmail (dot) com).



Good luck and happy end-of-the-year-ing!

Hi, I love the adorable tags you created for the Kool Aid idea. Is it correct that you have to pay a subscription the Scribd site to download them? Thanks!

Leigh said...

Hi Katie! Scribd should be free. I have never had to pay a subscription fee to download or upload anything there! I hope this helps! If you can't get it to work, please email me directly and I will send you the document! My email is leightheo (at) gmail (dot) com.
