Pinterest challenge fun graduation gift

Last weekend we attended our first graduation party of the season. I knew we were giving cash, but I wanted to try something different than just the standard card.

I had pinned this idea a couple weeks ago and knew it would be perfect. The original idea uses a 2 liter pop bottle {you can check it out here}. 

I made a smaller version with a plastic water bottle. I made the label and gift tag on my computer and used some scrapbooking paper and ribbon to dress it up {of course I used the school colors}. I attached the label to the bottle with glue dots {they are super strong and don't show}.

This would also be a great gift idea for birthdays as well!

  1. That is such a great idea! My nephew is graduating next weekend and I'm planning on giving him money. This is way cuter than a card with a check inside.


    1. Thanks Lori! I think this is such a fun idea!
