Water Bottle Hanger Tutorial

I have had a few people ask me how I made the water bottle hangers that are shown below and I thought the easiest thing for me to do was to post a tutorial (only my second one ever!).  I have seen these before and I am sure there is another tutorial out there somewhere but this was my take on it so I hope you like it.   I kept it small so I could get two from one 8.5" x 11" sheet.

Base - 4 1/4" x 11"
Layer 1 - 2 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 2 - 2" x 3 3/4"
Punches: 1 3/8" Circle, Small Scallop Circle and the Decorative Label

Simply Scored, Cutter.

To make the scallop circle around the opening for the water bottle I punched a 1 3/8" Circle in Pool Party, and then punched the scallop circle around it.

Take the Base layer and score at 2" (this is the top), 6.5" and 7" (this is the bottom) on the long side. (Sorry about the extra marker on the Scoring tool ignore it) 
On the short side score at 1/2" and 1" and flip and do that again on the other side. 
 Cut away 1" on either side from the base leaving the bottom 4 1/2"  in tact.  I made little tabs as seen in the picture between 4.5" and 4" that will end up being the bottom of the hanger.
 Attach the scallop circle to the top then punch out the circle in the middle with the 1 3/8" punch.
To make a layered look on the decorative label punch simply punch out two in the background color and glue together leaving about 1/8" as shown. Then attach your main label on top as shown below.
Fold along score lines, add sticky strip to all tabs as shown and glue them to the top half.
Decorate using the layer pieces and label.  I put a Dairy Milk Thins Chocolate bar and a Nestea flavour packet (for the water bottle of course!)  You could also add a pen for orders or Twizzlers, the possibilities are endless.

I hope you like the final result.  I think I may try these for a BBQ or a Birthday Party.  I would love to see your take on it, leave your link below in the comments.  Thanks everyone.  Have a great day!

  3. Love this. I was just talking to my daughter, we are doing a crop as a fund raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and I said we need to do bottle hangers with their names on it so they know where to sit. Thank you! Now I can just case yours and not have to design something.
