Possibly one of the easiest and cheapest DIY projects I've had yet!
What you need:
First of all, I created my graphics in Gimp, a free downloadable graphics program that is almost comparable Paint Shop Pro. The "Nutrition Facts" part came from Mrs. Firefly's water bottle template.
The labels I ordered came from onlinelabels.com (direct link above). Each sheet has 5 labels on them and I ordered some extra sheets so I could mess around with the template/design plus I mess things up a lot . I spent around $25.00 for 30 sheets plus $4.95 for shipping. (I ordered them on a Friday and they were here by Monday!) I also like onlinelabels.com because with each purchase you make, you get a free pass to their Maestro Label Designer which makes waterbottle label designing virtually fool-proof! You can create mass labels or make each one look individual, and they also help you with printer alignment. Yay!
After that, you literally peel and stick the labels onto the waterbottles once they have dried! You can also customize the labels to cater the theme and colors of your wedding. Mine were made to match my invitations. They're easy, inexpensive, and fun. Trust me, if I can do it, so can you!
What brand of water did you use? I'm looking for one like this, that has a wide top for the label. I designed my labels to be 2 inches tall for the costco water bottles, but they changed their bottle size to be more eco friendly and now can't find bottles to fit my label!
Sorry to hear about the Costco bottles, that's frustrating! The water I used was Nestle Pure Life, purchased from Walmart.
Hey girl! They look awesome :-)
How many labels did the 30 sheets make?
30 sheets made 150 labels
Which font did you use for you labels?
Sorry, I don't know the font used :( I had the monogram made with my invitations via Etsy.
Which etsy seller did you use?
I used shineinvitations. They are great! The monogram came with the invitations I had made, I don't think they make just monograms though.
