I love this time of year. I love how stores are packed with children searching for the perfect backpack. I love seeing all the notebooks stacked in huge piles, pencils waiting to be sharpened, and yeah, even seeing those hideous plastic pencil boxes with the raised bump on top.
Yeah, back to school is the best time of the year.
Since I don't have any kids of my own, I have to live vicariously through others. Like, my nieces, for example. They're all going back to school today. Lucky ducks.
I decided to make them a little back to school gift. Enter, lotions.
To make this extra cheesy gift, all you need is some Mod Podge, lotion, an a printout of the saying "We hope your new school year goes smoothly". Once all of the supplies are rounded up, it's smooth sailing from there. There are only three steps, from start to finish. Just how I like it
Step one: peel off existing label. You may have to use something like Goo Gone to get the extra off (I used nail polish remover, it worked)
Step two: paint a thin layer of Mod Podge onto your lotion bottle. Make sure not to use too much, just enough so that the paper will stick on. Wait a few minutes before going to step three.
Step three: paint a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the top of the paper and let dry, and that's it!
I'm in love with them. Maybe that explains why I took about 80 photos of this project for the blog. Don't worry, I condensed them...A little.
For added glee...Check out how great this Mod Podge dried! It's called Mod Podge Satin. I am in love with it. In fact, I'll be reviewing it tomorrow on this here blog. There WILL be a giveaway accompanying it... See you then?
Oh, and here are the little papers I made in Photoshop. Feel free to steal them, or make some of your own! For a Bath and Body Works lotion bottle, I've found that 152x217 are the perfect dimensions.
Thanks for reading! See you tomorrow.
