    I found it at Wal-Mart! You can find similar ones at Target, craft stores, etc! Or just use any fun tumbler water bottle!

    How can I change the tag from teacher to friend?

      Hi, Annie! Unfortunately, this is a PDF and therefore not an editable format. I would recommend opening the pdf in an editable software such as Photoshop, Indesign, or even Word, cover the word “Teacher” with a white rectangular box, and cover that portion with a text box reading “Friend” in similar color and font size. I hope that helps. Your friend will love this DIY gift!
