For my daughter's upcoming 2nd grade Valentine's party, she was asked to bring in bottled water for the class. I thought it would be fun to dress them up with Valentine's labels. Unfortunately, I am still a beginner with PSE (Photoshop Elements) and do not have much experience in designing personalized water bottle labels. Just in case you are wondering... all of the products currently on my site, Pitter Patter Creations, are from other talented designers that I have partnered up with to sell.
In the past few weeks, many designers' blogs have offered free Valentine party printables for cards, cupcake toppers and tags; however I haven't come across any for water bottle labels. I decided to put myself to up to the challenge!
The photo above shows the personalized Valentine water bottle label that I came up with. It did take me some time to figure out how to create them and have the labels print out correctly since I was not working with an existing template. However, I am very happy with how they turned out! These were made to fit the smaller Deer Park water bottles 8 fl. oz. Some of the graphics used were from The Coffee Shop Blog. (BTW, I love that blog and have mentioned it here in previous posts. You will find photography and Photoshop tips plus free downloadable actions and digital elements. Definitely, check it out!)
If you are having a Valentine's Day Party and want to make your water bottles look more festive, here is a non-personalized label you may use. The watermark will not be on the printed file. Click here (Google Documents) and download the free printable .pdf file. If that link doesn't work, then try this one (4shared). Not only was designing the label a new thing for me, but also had to figure how I was going to share it. Eeek! Decided to load the file to both of these free programs, just in case one did not work for everyone. Please note this is for Personal Use only, not Commercial Use.
Once you download the file on to your pc, you will need Acrobat Acrobat Reader to read the .pdf file. There are 4 labels per 8.5 x 11 sheet. Print out as many as you like, cut them up and use double sided tape to secure each to a 8 fl oz. water bottle. Enjoy!
