DIY Bottle Labels

I wanted to make some bottle labels for the repackaged ink we will be using for our calligraphy workshop. We selected some wide rimmed bottles that will be an ideal for fit the nib and holder.

DIY Bottle Labels

Since the labels will change depending type of workshop we will be conducting, I decided to DIY some labels with clear tape and stickers.

Materials:

Steps:

  1. Print the labels in sticker paper. I used a laserjet printer since it prints with a glossy sheen.
  2. Write on the label using a Sharpie or dip pen.
  3. Stick the clear tape over the printed labels.
  4. Cut out each label.

Use clear tape over the sticker labels to protect the writing

If you’re making a few labels at a time, you can stick them directly on the tape and cut it them out.

Be careful not to leave air pockets  between the paper and tape.

If you’d like to make your own labels with our printable template, you can download them for free here for your personal use. Link with love!

Christmas Crafts and Calligraphy

I was able to make some rubber stamps this week for some Christmas crafts at the office. It took me about two hours to carve this reindeer stamp using the free printable gift tag designs for last year’s Christmas freebie here in our blog. I’m happy how it turned out.

Made some greeting cards using carving rubber and ink pads

As part of our holiday tradition, we usually make handmade wrapping paper to spend some quality time together and to save money. I do hope that that statement didn’t sound too pretentious. I make stuff because I enjoy crafty things.

Gift tags for my family written in my own hand using a Brause Nib

We usually wrap our presents before flying home but I don’t think we will have time to do that tomorrow before our flight on Sunday.  I’m glad I found some time to make some gift tags for my family and in-laws’ gifts so at least there will be a handmade touch to our presents.

Every now and then we offer free printables here in our blog and for Christmas you can download this free digital printable for the whole month of December. It took me a few hours to come up with the design and illustrate this card and we’re giving it away but there is a catch.

Pay It Forward this Christmas

This is a Pay It Forward thing and we’d like you to do something nice for someone in need or make a donation worth $5 to the charity of your choice. Let’s make an effort to spread some joy this festive season.
