coffee stain labels
I've been playing around with labels the last few days after I became infatuated with recreating apothecary style labels that I saw in the Green Guide for Artists. I bought some sticker paper from Staples, stained it with coffee, let it dry over night and then ran it through my printer. After I did this I realized it would be much cheaper to just print on cream colored paper (to avoid the water warping) and use a glue stick to attach it to the bottle. The sticker paper was about $13 for 30 sheets, you can get like 500 sheets of cream colored paper like this for $8. The bottle is a recycled peppermint nog bottle from Target which was on sale for 4/.99 cents this week. Coffee and cute bottles for .25 cents each? Sounds good to me.
Ha! I just realized the paper I linked to was called Hammermill Fore MP . I think it is a sign that it really is for me :D. Maybe next time.
