Hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
Clean plastic container
Scrapbook paper ( because it's pretty!!!)
laminating sheets or packing tape depending on what you have available or it you want to go and buy supplies
Paper trimmer ( slicer)
First is first I always make sure to rinse out the containers and dry them completely. Instead of using dish soap ( too many suds- wasted water) I usually put a small of bleach in there and fill, let sit five minutes and then rinse with hot water.
The next step is figuring out how the paper is going to fit on the bottle or container.
|Here is the paper covered with packing tape- it is what I had and I wanted to do something crafty today |
|Covering a large Arizona Green Tea gallon container|
After I do this I heat up the glue gun and apply the glue onto the container ( no worries no melting action). I press the covered paper onto the container - keep pressing and molding the paper to the container if it is slightly round ( like the Arizona Tea ones). Do around the edges, one by one if needs be to make sure it is secured. Be careful with the glue and have old magazine paper or newspaper or even old envelopes handy to wipe off excess glue after pressing( while it is warm) I press with the finger tips and closely watch the edges. Once the glue has cooled you can scrap off whatever glue is left over and TA DA!!!!! A container that is reused, and personalized.
