Give the Perfect Gift for Coach or Dad Using this Fun Brewery Tour Idea
It seems like every softball or soccer season we struggle with what to give our hard-working coaches. It’s always the same thing, sporting good gift cards, glass mugs, and sunflower seeds. Ho hum. This year I wanted to do something different and fun and the thing our coaches had in common was the love of going to our local breweries here in Anaheim, CA.
So, I put together this little coach gift idea including not only beer and tip money, but a map of the local breweries and Uber gift card. Here’s a video I made of how it turned out.
Making the Paper Bottle Carrier
These materials lists and instructions have affiliate links to recommended products that I use.
- Scrapbook Paper
- Plain Cardstock
- Scissors or Cutting Tool
- Cutting Mat
- Straight Edge
- Utility Knife
I found this wood patterned paper at Michael’s for $.69 each. And cut it down to 12” X 8”. I made a 4” flap and folded it up. To make the handle, I used a straight edge and cutting mat to cut it out. I glued the sides of the flap down.
Next, I cut a 6” X 4” piece of paper and glued in the center of the back of the carrier. This is for the back of the pocket.
Lastly, I went to Google maps and searched “Anaheim Breweries”. I took a screen shot of the map, saved it as an image, cropped it, and then printed and cut it out to use as a pocket for the Uber gift card.
Making the Money Holder Paper Bottles
- Scrapbook Paper
- Cutting Tool
First, I found an image of a bottle on Google and cut it out on cardstock to use as my template. I resized the image to about 2” X 7”. Next, trace and cut out six bottles per carrier on metallic brown scrapbook paper I found at Michael’s for $.69 each.
I Googled some local brewery logos and print and cut those out and glued them to the front of the bottles. I also made a little pocket and glued them to the back with the words “beer money plus tip”.
Putting it All Together
I inserted fives and ones into each pocket of the bottles by folding them lengthwise. I also got an Uber e-gift card on Amazon and printed them out, folded them, and placed them in the map pocket.
Lastly, place each money filled bottle in the carrier!
