Turn Your Tampico Juice Bottles Into A “The Baby Boss” Themed Treat For Your Kids

You guys! Have you seen the trailers for the new Dreamworks movie, “The Boss Baby”? Melanie laughs so hard whenever they come on that I wanted to create a little something fun for her to enjoy. The baby in the movie wears a suit and tie (which Melanie thinks is “so, so fuuuunnnny”) and I came up with a quick DIY to add some cute chalkboard ties to a six pack of Tampico juice bottles. This ties are not only adorable, they’re functional – you can write each person’s name on their juice and not worry about fighting over who’s bottle is who’s!
