Tutorial: Water Bottle Wrappers February 19, 2012

 

Having personalized water bottle wrappers at your party is one of the simplest and most fun ways to decorate and add a touch of whimsy. I get lots of requests for water bottle wrappers and they are one of the most fun things for me to design. I especially love adding personal touches such as nutritional facts on the side. How cute is this gold and lavender water bottle wrapper for a baby shower:

I have loads of different water bottle wrappers in my store- for lots of different occasions but if you don’t see exactly what you want then you could send me an e-mail because I love custom orders.

Putting these water bottle labels on your bottles, is really easy. Here’s what you do:

So, to put these together…

1. print out the water bottle wrappers that I will e-mail you. Use high quality print setting (choose quality over speed).
 Depending on the design you choose, there will probably be five on a sheet. Ideally, you should print on heavy bright white cardstock. I like to use 110 lb paper.

2. trim the paper.  I recommend using a paper slicer to cut the labels so that you have neat, straight edges. When you cut the labels, do not cut any of the sides i.e. make sure your rectangle’s length stays 8 1/2 inches.  If your printer didn’t print to the edges then trim only one side.

3.  peel the existing label off the water bottles (this will leave some stickiness on the plastic bottle which will help your new labels stick a bit better). For these bottles, I have used Nestle Pure Life Juniors. I think the little bottles are so cute! The water bottle labels work on the full size bottles of water too.

4. wrap the new labels around the bottle. I like to use a little bit of tape (the magic transparent tape) or use a couple dabs of a glue stick on just the paper that overlaps.

This is the tape I like to use:

DO NOT put these on cold/refrigerated bottles. The condensation will make the paper wet and ruin your lovely labels.

I also sometimes like to mix things up and use them on Frappucino bottles when I serve cold drinks, such a lemonade out of a pitcher. These need a bit of goo be gone to remove the residual stickiness from the Starbucks labels and I usually put them in the dishwasher too! Don’t they look super cute?

Here are some other water bottle wrappers available in my store. Simply click on any of the photos to the taken to the item listing :)

    I’ve had a few people ask me recently about making these labels waterproof so that they can put the bottles in a cooler with ice… Using 110 lb card stock they will hold up to some condensation…. You could put them in the fridge and then put them out just before guests arrive.
    If you truly want waterproof, the only two options are to either print on card stock and then laminate or use printable vinyl. I’ve never done either but as far as I know those are the only way to make these waterproof. If you have another idea for making waterproof label, please leave a comment or let me know!
