After the original packaging from the water bottles was removed, myself and a great co-worker friend put the new volunteer labels on (you can put the label over the glue from the previous label, no one will notice).

After hole punching the Crystal Light, we added ribbon through each hole to tie to each bottle of water. We chose ribbon in school colors (blue & gold). I got the ribbon at Michael's for 50 cents each (bought 4 = $2).
