Happy Summer! I hope this finds you ready for some relaxation, warm temps and lots of sandy toes!
There is a new set of Bath Salts Labels in my Etsy Shop and I wanted to make sure that there was an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to print and cut them out where customers can come if they have questions.
These labels (and bath salts) were a big hit this spring as I used them as gifts for teachers and friends to start the summer off with sweet scents and effervescent foot soaks.
The kit comes with 3 files, and all can be opened in the free version of Adobe Reader. There are fields where you can type in all of your scents for the labels, as well as an ingredient/message card where you can list ingredients and a gift message.
* 1 template for the 2″ Avery labels (12 per sheet) – Avery 22807 Labels
* 2″ x 3″ customizable label where you can list ingredients and/or a special message, also has a “To:” and “From” area.
* 1 template for 2″ circular labels that can be cut with a circle cutter (12 per sheet)
The Avery Labels will have instructions on their pack, but if shifting occurs, I would suggest printing test sheets on regular paper and making sure the images align with the Avery label pages. You can also fill out the fields on your own, save it to your computer, and then upload it to the Avery site to have them printed there.
To cut the rectangular labels out, you can enter your ingredients and/or message in the editable field and then print them out on your choice of card stock. I use a straight edge and a blade to cut them out around the light grey line, but you can use scissors if you’d like.
The last circular labels can be printed on card stock and then cut out with a circular cutter. I use the Fiskars 2 inch circle cutter. You will want to print this page out and then cut with scissors along the edge, close to the leaf on the right side. Then slide the page into the circle cutter and center the label to your liking….squeeze the label out and you are all set!
If you need a recipe for your bath salts, I have posted mine below. I used summer scents like citrus, coconut, and cucumber melon for this batch. I will be posting some matching body butter labels too too.
