I was hoping to share this with you earlier,but it ended up being a “last minute” project.  With the events of the last weekend, I found myself wanting to distance myself from the computer and the internet…so this years Teacher Gifts sat undone.

I always like to give the kids teachers a practical gift that they will actually use.  I have made a few different versions of these unique and personalized Hand Sanitizer Bottles and this year was no exception.  The kids teachers have always “claimed” to love them so we continue to give them out.  I always add a fun gift card for the local Movie Theater or a Restaurant for them to enjoy, along with the Hand Sanitizer.

This year I decided to show you an example of putting the label INSIDE the bottle, which is the same as I have done for all our past versions of this along with putting the label on the OUTSIDE of the bottle.  My personal preference is for the label to be on the inside, which is printed on a sheet of Transparency Paper (film).  And the label on the outside of the bottle is simply just printed on a laser printer onto some white cardstock.

For complete, step-by-step instructions, please refer to this hand sanitizer tutorial.  If you are going to make labels to go inside the bottle you will need to print onto your transparency with a laser printer.  This is a CRUCIAL step.  Every year I get emails from people who use an ink jet printer and wonder why their ink slides off into the bottle.

If you don’t have a Laser printer or copier, or your printer is not made to print on transparencies (check your owners manual), then you can simply have your local copy center print it onto a transparency for you.  They usually charge a small fee but in the scope of things, this turns out to be a very affordable gift!

I have provided you with a free download of this fun Chalkboard Art Christmas Label. Simply click on the link or the image below to download the labels for your own use. You will need to re-size the labels to fit into the bottles you end up using. I made them a bit larger so you could use larger bottles if you would like too. Just re-size the image in your printing program before printing.

I printed mine out so that the width measured 2.75 inches (if my memory serves me right).

I am really enjoying this trendy Chalkboard Art…so of course I had to put my own little twist on it.  Aren’t they so much fun?  And, if you don’t want to make the hand sanitizer bottles (or soap bottles) you can simply print these out and use them as a gift tag or frame it for your desk!

    Yay, a laser printer project! We do not own an inkjet which so many other DIYs require. Thanks for the great idea. We even have the laser transparencies!

    Hand sanitizer idea is great and very few calories during this indulgent season. I passed it along to my kids who have school-aged children. But it’s a great idea for anyone! Thanks Amy.

      Thanks Cheryl! I made this printable on PicMonkey.com. The font for Merry is called “Jellyka Delicious Cake” and the word bright is “EcuyerDax”. Quite the names huh?

    Geoscientists may serve as consultants in green projects such as finding
    sources of green energy (like geothermal heat). Taking into account the diverse spots of his service requirement, he iss always
    in demand and thus, generally stretched to the restrict.
    Having said all of that I have to pointt out that when you will require to hire an electrician you should always ask to view proof of therir certificates.
