I don’t know about you but the change from fall to winter contributes to dry skin and having a bottle of lotion constantly on display isn’t exactly decorative so why not whip out a vinyl decal/label using a fun shape and text? I used my Silhouette Cameo and vinyl but you could substitute craft paper, glue, contact paper, decorative tape and/or stickers. It’s a cute DIY gift idea too. Here is what I did:
- Bottle of Moisturizing Lotion (Dollar General) – you could also make your own and use a glass bottle or jar
- Gold Vinyl from Happy Crafters
- Transfer paper
- Silhouette Cameo
What I did:
Remove front label. I left the back label adhered so there was no mistaking the contents and ingredients. The front label pulled away clean for me but some may take a little elbow grease.
Using my Silhouette Studio software along with a previously purchased deer shape and helvetica font, I created a design measuring small enough to fit on the front of the lotion bottle (roughly 3 x 3 inches).
Load vinyl color side up. I changed my blade settings for cutting vinyl and sent to ‘cut’.
Weed away all ‘negative’ vinyl that isn’t a part of the design.
Add a piece of transfer paper to the front side of the vinyl decal and rub with a gift card or credit card.
Pull away the wax paper backing.
Place the vinyl decal/transfer paper onto the front of the lotion bottle and rub the design with a a gift card.
Peel away the transfer paper.
Add a coordinating bow if desired. Now you have cute guest room accessory.
Or create a holiday gift set by adding a super easy DIY ring/jewelry holder.
