Re~production labels ~

Hi everyone~this is just a fun post!! Remember those old labels HERE , I took them and copied them on some off white copy paper.  This is what I came up with~


These are re-production bottles!  The bottles are new { we take a viatmin that comes in these} and I think they look vintage {and surely can find something to do with them } and I did.  This is how I made them~

These are the orginal old labels~


Copied on some old looking paper~


Cut the labels out and adhere them to the bottle with Helmar's Acrylic Sealer.  I put the sealer on the back of the label and adhere to the bottle.. Rub the label to be sure the wrinkles are out and set it aside.  When it is dry {about 5 minutes} put a thin coat over just the label.


Really~that is it and aren't they cute!!!!  When I do crafts like this I like to copy my orginal label, card whatever I'm using {orginal goes into a master file} then I have the images for other things.



These are some other old bottles I had, so I put a label on them too.  I have 3 sets of reproduction labels printed out~the first three peeps to email me their address I will send each of you a set.  Hope you enjoyed this and I'll see ys soon!
