Beverage Wrappers

Beverage wrappers seem to be a big trend in party decorations these days. And why not they are SUPER CUTE and totally add those finishing touches. You can find them all over Etsy but today I thought I would share with you how to make your own, inexpensive ones.
Supplies needed
  • Paper
  • Scissors or cutting mat
  • Decorative edge paper cutter (mine is the Fiskar brand)
  • Goo Gone
  • Bottle (glass or water bottle)
  • Double sided tape or hot glue
First you are going to cut your paper into even strips. Mine were about 2 inches tall. Then you will punch the decorative edge on them.
I wanted to add a little design to it so I put a stamp on the front. Once you are all done wrap them around the bottle and glue the edge. Simple as that! I recommend filling your bottle with your beverage before wrapping them with your paper. I also love the glass bottle look. I bought Crush soda bottles and peeled the stickers off. They leave a sticky residue you can clean off with Goo Gone. This stuff works great. I tossed them in the dishwasher when I was done cleaning them to get them all nice and clean. Once you are done filling them you can either recap them or put cute paper straws in them. I decided to cap mine with a bottle topper you can purchase online. It is super easy and adds a great look. Have fun with it and your guests will be sure to be impressed!
