After losing 20 pounds in 2016 through exercise and making healthy snack choices, one of my goals for 2017 is to drink more water every day. Check with your doctor about how much water you should drink every day. You may be surprised at how much you actually need. I aim for 72-ounces of water per day. That’s a lot of water to drink. When I have the best motivational water bottle ever, it’s so much easier to reach my daily water goals!

How to Make a Motivational Water Bottle
To create the design for this motivational water bottle, I used the software provided with the Silhouette electronic cutting machine and modified design #139766 from the Silhouette Design Store online.
Once my electronic cutter finished cutting the design, I removed the unwanted vinyl using tweezers.
After removing the unwanted vinyl from the design, I took a quick healthy snack break with a ZonePerfect® Chocolate Peanut Butter Nutrition Bar.
The next step is to apply the transfer paper over the design. The transfer paper helps to transfer the design from the vinyl backing onto the water bottle.
I like to use one with gridlines as it helps to line your design onto the water bottle a bit easier.
With a curved design, it can be a bit challenging to apply the vinyl design. What I did for this motivational water bottle was to apply the center of the design first, then gently push down from the center out to the right side. I repeated this process on the left side.
Using a burnishing tool, I rubbed the vinyl design to ensure it adhered well to the reusable water bottle. Once it was affixed well, I gently lifted the transfer tape from the design at a slight angle.
Not only will this motivational water bottle keep me drinking water daily, it makes a great gift, too! I like to give unqiue gifts to teachers, friends, and neighbors. **This motivational water bottle should be hand washed as the vinyl is not dishwasher safe.**
What I love about this motivational water bottle is that I can use it everywhere I go. It’s perfect for walking the trails of Cape Cod, grabbing it as I run out the door to school pickup, or while I am working hard at my desk.
