How cute are these? Need a teacher gift or last minute gift on a budget? I got this idea from a fellow blogger's post & LOVE it!!!
I had fun making these because they are really meaningful and only cost me $1.00!!!! Here is what you'll need:
**Dollar store hand sanitizer or soap.
This project is SO simple!!
Simply print your own personalized message or quote onto some transparency film using a laser printer. If you don't have a laser printer, print it out with your ink jet printer and then copy it onto the transparency film. You can also take your paper and have the copy center copy it onto transparencies which is usually around $1. The reason it needs to be copied or printed from a laser printer is so the ink will no run and fall apart in the soap.
You may need to re size it according to the size of your bottles. Then personalize it by adding a name (etc.) to the top and underline it in a font of your choice and size. Crop to fit if needed. It should be 3 inches wide by 3.5 inches high for the hand soaps and 3 inches wide by 4 inches high for the sanitizer bottles I used.
Below is the tutorial to help you get the finished product.
Remove all of the labels from your bottles. Mine came off easily but you can use a product like Goof Off to help the process.
Cut around your printed label as straight and as close as you can get to the writing so that it fits properly into your bottle. Check before you cut the bottom of the label to be sure that it will sit as high in the bottle as you would like it to.
Roll up the label so that the writing is in front. I roll mine backwards. Stuff it into the bottle carefully.
Use the soap dispenser to push the label to the front wall of the bottle and to straighten it in the right position.
