This is something I have been meaning to create for far Canvas Corp Brand CCB Creative Crewtooooo long!  I was recently working on another project (publishing later this month) that required the laminator and I also had some unused space in the laminating sheets.  Perfect time to do this project.

I work from home and have a difficult time keeping track of my glasses.  So, some days I might use 7+ glasses.  My partner is always running around helping track down all the glasses so that we can fill up the dishwasher and start over!  Endless.

Since I drink iced tea or lemon water the Ball jar (always)/glass is easily reusable throughout a day.  This tag helps me keep track of the glass for the day.  No wondering which is *today’s* glass anymore!

UPDATE:  My first attempt at this was such a raving success with both my partner and I that I made two more, one for my summer lemonade and one for iced.  I drink these two things almost exclusively!

The recipe for the SUPER refreshing lemonade is: 1 gallon water, 3 lemons sliced, 1/2 cucumber sliced, and a handful of mint.  Allow to sit overnight.  This lasts 2-3 days…unless you drink it faster…which for me, is usually!

 

Details – Circle:

  1. Punch a one inch circle.  I used Graphic45 paper.
  2. Run through the laminator.
  3. Punch a two inch circle (centering the paper – remember you are going to create a hole at the top!).
  4. Punch a hole in the top.
  5. Thread orange hemp and tie creating a circle large enough to fit over the top…but not slide down the glass.

Details – Lemonade:

  1. Punch out the “Make Lemonade” circle from Lemonade & Sweet Ice Tea Sayings on White.
  2. Paint with bright yellow watercolor.
  3. Laminate, trim, hole punch, and chomp corners.
  4. Attached with piece of green hemp.

Details – Ice Tea

  1. Cut out the “You Can’t Buy Happiness” rectangle from Lemonade & Sweet Ice Tea Sayings on White.
  2. Spray with Glimmer Mist – Suede.
  3. Laminate, trim, hole punch, and chomp corners.
  4. Attached with piece of jute.

    • I had to come up with some solution…otherwise they wouldn’t last that long! 🙂
