Making a water bottle sticker is super simple. I walk you through how I made a little doodle into a water proof sticker using a Xyron.
I have a friend who is an incredible artist has been sketching things backstage in my community theater production. We commissioned her to make me a scrunchie and some protea because.. obviously! She sketched them out for me and I FELL IN LOVE. For this reason I decided to make them into stickers to keep on my water bottle. But you don’t want paper on a water bottle. The pencil would just come right off and then paper would obviously fall apart.
What I used to Make My Water Bottle Sticker
- Sketched picture
- Hydroflask or something similar (I put mine on this)
I first got my friend to sketch a few things for me. I actually scanned this page to print off multiples for my Etsy store! Especially the scrunchie one just turned out SO cute.
I cut around the circles that she actually made using hair spray lids. (We were back stage at the time…)
Next I laminated the circles. This makes the paper semi water proof.
I carefully cut out the laminated circles and then ran them through my Xyron. What you need to do is place them against the back of the opening with the arrows, and rotate the side lever.
They will come out the back with plastic over them. When you remove the plastic, you can peel the sketches away and you have stickers!
How easy was that?! I’m going to be making so many of these. I love decorating my hyrdroflasks so this is going to be my new activity when I’m board. This would also be a really easy craft for summer camps!
Let me be clear, these are NOT dishwasher safe. However if you rinse out your flasks like the directions say, you shouldn’t be putting them in the dishwasher anyway. They will stay on if you wash them with warm water and dishsoap though and I think that’s pretty dang cool.
