I’ll admit…I am looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year. Last year we were right in the middle of our Kitchen Remodel and so, as you can imagine, we were in a huge mess of dust and chaos. The Valentine’s Day decorations and homemade Valentines didn’t make much of an appearance.
Well this year I am hoping to make up for it. There are so many fun ideas out there that I was excited to get busy creating. This crush bottle is not a new idea and I have seen some really cute versions floating around the web. I just LOVED the idea of using the CRUSH soda to give as a gift. So, I made my own labels that to use as a gift for my daughter’s pre-school friends this year.
And the best news? The gifts are ready to go already. How is that for being prepared?
I made some cute tags too by simply punching out a 1.5 inch circle of scrapbook paper and gluing it onto a scalloped 2 inch piece of paper. Then wrap some baker’s twine around the neck of the bottle and throw on a cute mini clothes pins which I painted white. I also added this fun pewter heart!
I came up with a couple of different labels in pink and blue. The labels look pretty washed out in the photographs but show up darker in real life. They were proving difficult to photograph ;)!
Simply click on each label image to get the download to take you to the download page. You must be a fan of the Idea Room to get access to the labels. Click on “Previous Downloads” and you will find each label.
Give the crush bottles separately as a small gift or give the entire six pack to “your little crush”.
Fill the bottles with some fun Valentine’s Day Candy and add some fun scrap book paper to the box to jazz it up a bit like I did for these Bath Salts.
Throw in a fun stripey straw and enjoy! But beware…when you put a cardboard straw into this Strawberry Crush, the carbonated drink gets a little crazy. So be prepared for it to come bubbling up.
Now, I have had more than a few of you ask me how I get my labels to stick to the jars or what paper I print them on. Great question! I simply print my labels onto white cardstock paper and then cut them out by hand or with my Silhouette. Then simply glue them onto the bottles with an old fashioned glue stick. It works like a charm and leaves no bubbles if you gently smooth out the label with your fingers!
I have got some more Valentine’s Day posts in the works so be sure to check back in. I am also struggling to write a pretty personal post about my recent health issues. Well see if I can get it published here soon. I’m struggling with finding the right words :)! Hope you all have a great day! xo
