Personalized Water Bottles for Lacrosse


My daughter just finished her first season of Lacrosse. I chose the sport for her and neither of us knew anything about it when she began. She has developed a love for the sport and pick up the skills required rather quickly. The team gelled and finished the season undefeated.

To congratulate all the teammates my company is donating personalized aluminum water bottles for each girl (two teams = 33 girls)! Each bottle features a lacrosse player with the girl's name and jersey number. Here's the first one I completed for my daughter Zora who was #57. I tied bows on the cover and attached a tag with my company info with twine to complete the look.

Supplies:

  • Aluminum water bottles - Dollar Tree
  • Gold adhesive Vinyl 12" x 24" - Oh My Crafts!
  • Cricut Transfer Tape
  • Cricut E2 - Cricut Decals (lacrosse player 3.5") and Hannah Montana (font 1" and numbers .25")
  • Ribbon, Twine - American Crafts
  • Tags - Hero Arts
Check back tomorrow for the latest Get Inky! Stamps challenge and my inspirational post. I hope you'll join in on the fun!!!

  2. Oh, La-Vie, the water bottle turned out fabulously! I love it, and I am sure the girls did too. It's so nicely done!! When my Emily was Zora's age, she played lacrosse as well -- but at my insistence, she played goalie. First of all, she was bigger (taller) than all the other girls and could cover more of the cage, but most importantly (to me, at least), at the time her position was the only one allowed to wear protective gear. I noticed in the picture of Zora that perhaps that has changed. It didn't matter to me that I had to supply all of the goalie gear ($800 worth).

    Emily played lacrosse for 7 years and was quite good, until a career-ending injury. Chasing a ball, her leg slid into a 10' deep (yes, 10-FEET) hole that once held the football goal post and her private school didn't fill OR mark it!! Egads.... Ripped all the tendons, etc in the lower half of her leg. Eeeek. Proving once again, that we can only TRY to protect our kids as well as we can.

    1. Hi Ellen!! Thanks for your kind words. The girls haven't received them yet. I am still working on it. But plan to have them ready by the banquet date in June.

      Thanks for sharing your story. I cannot believe anything like that could EVER happen. Sounded like a law suit to me! In this league, they only allow the girls to wear goggles. There are no goalies. They usually have a yellow barrier across the goal instead. Zora has been hit in the jaw, shin, etc. with the lax but has learned how to be tough. Sports are so essential but are a lot of worry. (You've got me quite scared now though...)

  4. What a great idea, and a relatively inexpensive way to promote your busines!
