DIY Water Bottle Invitations

DIY Water Bottle InvitationsOur Women’s Ministry was having a Bible Study and as a way of getting attention to the invites that we were sitting on our ministry table, I was asked to make these bottles.  Plus, the theme is Thirst so our women’s ministry leader was a genius to think of this!  I couldn’t just attach the postcards, I had to add some pretty to it too!!!!

 

 

 

I made labels with my computer that said a scripture relevant to the study and cut scrapbook paper to glue them on.  The easiest way to do this is to use tape, or you can tape the under side and then run glue under the whole label. I then attached a more detailed invitation.  These were done on a postcard size, but business card sizes would work perfectly on the small water bottles.   It didn’t take long to do, probably 4-5 hours total. I curled ribbon around the top for an extra umph and shine.

 

The great thing was that people couldn’t help but notice them!  I wish I’d managed to get a picture of the display table but I totally failed.  As you can imagine, they looked great in a bucket with faux ice made of the shiny plastic wrap crumpled up into the bottom.

I absolutely love doing invitations and such that are different from the norm.  We did message in a bottle luau invitations for one of my daughters birthdays.  They were adorable too!  Also an unfortunate blogger fail as I forgot to get pictures of them as well.  I know, I know, it’s been crazy.  LOL

They would be great to take to the kid’s sports events to get invitations out to the whole team at once.  We also used water bottles decorated during a Cars themed party for ‘fuel’. just use a coordinating label.  The great thing is this invitation is 100% recyclable!  I absolutely love that little gem!

    I think this was a great idea. People like getting free stuff (even me!), and with your pretty finishing touches, I’ll bet lots of folks were drawn to your invites – and ultimately to studying the Word of God.
    The famine in these end days is not for food, it is for the Bread of Life, The Word of our Lord.

    I do like it! They look great & the women grabbed them up to pass out much faster than the postcards. You do realize that Thirst will be ongoing so we may need to make more for the next study? ;o)
