I finished the water bottle labels for my sister's graduation and I was so happy to be able to mark them off my to-do list. They took way more time than I thought they would. The good part is I had my trusty lil Cricut to help me with all the cutting, too bad it doesn't glue too. Each letter and number was shadowed with the opposite color cardstock. I bought graduation stickers at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago when they were 50% off so I got 8 pages of stickers for around $3. I used those to go in the middle of the flower thing (have no clue what else to call them) separating the 2011 and Kayli
After everything was cut and glued I used clear packing tape to cover them, I read somewhere this would make them water proof. It worked on most but when the party was over I noticed about 6 of the labels had leaked. We wrapped them around the bottles and used more packing tape to secure them.
And the finished product:
I didn't get a picture of them actually on the bottles since these were the last thing we finished before leaving to set everything up. I did think these gave the party a personal touch. I wanted her party to be special and have alot of little touches she wouldn't see at other parties. With these labels, the centerpieces, cupcake toppers, and cake, I think I accomplished that.
