Many months ago, as I was making plans for my daughter’s candy party I started looking into getting custom water bottle labels. I’d seen parties (on-line) that had cute custom labels on the bottles and I wanted to try to do the same. I found labels I could buy for $0.80-$1.00 each, but that was out of the budget. I continued searching for any “how-to’s” on making my own labels, and searched for good prices on the printable vinyl that most custom label sellers seemed to be using. Even the vinyl was quite expensive. I continued looking for information, and I was finally able to put together some ideas from a few different sights and make my own cute labels. The best part is, I didn’t have to buy any special materials, and the cost per label is only pennies!
Within about a weeks time I made custom labels for my daughter’s party (photo above), the “She’s about to Pop” showerI helped a friend host (below), and also some pretty labels for a 55th anniversary celebration (second photo below).
A strip of paper (custom designed, or just printed scrapbooking paper) 1 3/4″ tall and 8 1/2″ wide.
Paper cutter (for neatly cutting your paper)
Packing tape (clear, heavy tape 2″ wide)
Water bottles(I use Target’s store brand, Archer Farms, because they are smooth, sleek looking bottles).

I found it very informative., You have very well explained all the steps. I myself use this idea to customize the water bottles for the new year and valentine day. Great Idea!
