Teacher Appreciation - Manly Embellished Water bottles

In a previous post I shared how I made polka dot monogram cups for the female teachers in my children's lives. Today I have an idea for all the fellas. Instead of a girly cup, I decided to go with water bottles. I have both aluminum and clear plastic ones. I still included a monogram but with a more manly font and styling. Which do you like best? Clear or Aluminum?

  • Water bottles - Dollar Tree
  • Vinyl - Oh My Crafts!
  • Top note - Cricut Essential cart (in E2) - cut at 3.5" relative size
  • Stars, Monogram - CTMH Art Philosophy cart - cut at 1.25" and 1.75"
  • Vinyl Kiss cut on E2 - blade set to 1, speed 3, depth 3, multi-cut 1
  • Cricut transfer tape
  • plastic Easter grass from Dollar Tree
  • Crystal light drink sticks
In addition, I added a note pad/pen set for the ladies and a lined small note book for the fellas (both from Dollar Tree).

I really hope these men love these bottles and will use them. It's so hard gifting to males in a crafty way!!


Stop back to see the tag cards I attached to these bottles. They are adorable (not so manly - sorry!)

  1. I love what you did La-Vie. It is always hard trying to craft something up for a guy. I still prefer the plastic ones because I love how you can see what you put inside, they are both awesome though!
