Clean Hands are Happy Hands!

Remember when we were kids, and we had to wash our hands in the restroom at school?  I used to make fun of the hand sanitizer requirements on the school supply lists.  But the older my little boy gets and (maybe) the more kids I have, I notice the need for hand sanitizer a lot more!! LOL!

So for a back to school teacher gifty, I wanted to decorate a big bottle.  I saw a really cute idea at Christmastime on Joy's Life and knew I wanted to do something like it; she does some really awesome stuff with vinyl.  Here's a link to that project.

And since it's "Anything Goes" at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog, I knew I wanted to enter my project there!

I used "My Community" Cricut cartridge for the hands, and I cut them without really measuring!  At first I thought they were too big, but then decided I'd use them anyway and curve them around the side like they were holding the bottle.  I think they turned out cute!  Especially with the Peachy Keen "Everyday Character" faces on them!  I used "Timber Brown" Staz-On ink.

I cut the letters with Cricut's "Cherry Limeade" Lite cartridge.  I love how they are different sizes and have a fun look.  Then I used a brown Sharpie to do a little faux stitching around the white background.

Don't look too close, or you will see the bubbles I left in that white background!  Lol!  I really need some practice working with that stuff!  But I have two more to do--for my daughter's 6th grade teachers!

Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope your hands stay happy!  Mine are from all the crafting I got to do this weekend; but that's another story . . .
