Santa-Tizer

I am so excited to share this project with everybody today, because I love how they turned out.  I made these for Kaylee's teacher.  They are very easy and inexpensive to put together if you need a last minute gift.  And, we can all use sanitizer around the holidays with the cold weather and so many people coming in and out.  Got to keep everybody healthy. :)
To make these, I started out by getting by plain bottles of hand sanitizer from the Dollar Store. 

Then, I made my cuts for the bottle.  I used George and Basic Shapes to cut a rectangle out of shiny red paper at a size of 8 inches wide x 4 inches high.  I then used vinyl for the other cuts.  I cut a black piece for the belt at a size of 8 inches wide x 1 inch high from George and Basic Shapes.  I then used yellow vinyl and the Winter Frolic Cartridge to cut the buckle at a size of 1 1/2 inches.  For the font, I used the Robotz Cartridge and cut the saying at 2 1/2 inches wide x 1 1/4 inches high.
Now, I took these pieces and put them onto the red paper to make the cover for the bottle.  I went ahead and removed the label off of the front of the hand sanitizer, but this is not really needed.  (I am not sure why I was thinking about removing it, because you will be covering it up).

I wrapped this label around the bottle and used a line of hot glue to attach the back and finish it off.  Here is a picture of the front and back of the bottles.
