Tutorial For Printable Application And A-Manda Creation

Tutorial For Printables Application For Bottles

Welcome to The Cherry On Top!

So, you found some great printables, did you?!  Now what?!

You might be surprised just how easy it is to apply them.  I know I was!  

Let's start from the very beginning.  You're perusing your favorite sites and you find the perfect printable for your party or something you know the kids or co-works would just love.  Maybe a great gift for the teachers or friends in your life.

Printables via computer are amazingly well priced, are delivered either immediately or within 24 hours and there is no shipping fee.  How awesome is that?!  You can stay in jammies!  Ha!

TUTORIAL

What you will need:

-printer
-printed printable  (example:  bottle wrappers)
-scissors or paper trimmer
-tape
-bottles


Step 1:  You found your favourite, St. Patty's Day water bottle or other beverage bottle.  You do the easy purchasing step.  

Step 2:  Download your purchase.  (Be sure to remember where you saved it.  (Usually, it's just in "downloads" unless you move it.)


Step 3:  The easiest method to use is,  right click, open the download in "preview". 

Step 4:  Print it out.  (Keep the quality of print in mind, too.)


Step 5:  Cut or use a paper trimmer for your wrappers.  I cut the example out at different widths.  You may need a slimmer or wider width depending on your bottle.  Strategically cut along the line or give yourself some white space.  This gives you more versatility.


Step 6:  Apply the wrapper around the label of your bottle or take the existing label off first if you see too much of it or if you see through the newly printed wrapper,  center the design and wrap it around the bottle.


Step 7:  Fasten with clear tape.  You could cut off extra if necessary,.












Was that easy or what?!  You can literally, download, print, cut and tape in under 15 minutes!  What a great way to add a personal touch or to brighten up everyday objects.  Put your stamp on it!

Here are the larger labels around the wider bottles.  It's done exactly the same way and just as fast and simple.


Enjoy your printables and be amazed at how affordable and easy it is!!!
