Hello Creative Friends,
Sharing a thank you gift for volunteers. Wouldn’t these be fun to have for your next team member (committee – or whatever you call your helpers) meeting? Also this would be good to give as a teacher gift. This is a play on words for a Mountain Dew Bottle along with a mini size Mounds Bar. “Mounds of thanks for all you Dew”. I used a 20 oz Mountain Dew bottle.
I made a hanger for the Mountain Dew bottle out of card-stock (similar to the water bottle hanger), only for this I made the measurements 7 and 3/4 by 3 inches and scored at 2 inches at each end. Fold one end down and the other up, making a pocket on one end and punching a hole in the other end as a hanger for the bottle.
I used a 1 and 1/4 inch punch for the hanger but you can use one a little larger if you wish. Mine was snug on my Mountain Dew bottle. For the pocket I adhered the edges with sticky strip. I think this is the best adhesive for this unless you opt to use brads on the corners (example here).
I’ve made a circle printable for you. You can punch this out with a 1 and 3/4 inch punch. For mine, I edged the printable with some bright green ink I had. Thought it would give it a boost.
Important: To place in the Mounds Bar, you need to squeeze the sides of the pocket of the holder just slightly to give it a little give for it to fit inside. Squeeze gently:)
For those of you who don’t have the correct paper punch for the printable, I’ve made a square one for you.
