I’m so glad y’all love silly things like plastic containers as much as I do!  I had so many requests last summer that I decided to start carrying them.  I thought I may be using these containers for life with the bulk order I placed.  Instead, they have really become a favorite for you too!  YAY!!  I was thrilled when it was time to re-order!  I know we are talking about disposable plastic here, but they are pretty great.  Sturdy, a perfect size and way cute with a circle sticker!

Lots of questions have been asked about the containers and circle stickers so I hope this Tuesday Tip is helpful…

Do the containers come in multiple sizes?
At this time, I only carry one size.  It is a 5 ounce container and the perfect fit for a party snack or favor.

What kind of label do I purchase for the stickers?
There is not a particular Avery label needed. You will simply print on 8.5 x 11 sticker paper and then cut the individual stickers. I prefer gloss stickers!

How do you cut the stickers?
You can always hand cut the circle stickers. I have done so myself. If you have lots to cut, a 3 inch circle punch makes your job much easier. This is the circle punch that I use and it works wonderfully.
 
Can you print on card stock instead of sticker paper?
Absolutely! You can print any file on any paper you choose. I have printed on card stock as well. I followed the same steps and simply glued them to the containers instead. It still works perfectly!

I’m still confused. How do I print these again? {Yes, I hear this often!! I promise it’s simple!}
1. Your file will arrive to your email with (6) 3 inch circle stickers on an 8.5 x 11 page. You can print as many copies as you would like. There is no limit.
2. Choose to print your file at home on 8.5 x 11 sticker paper or forward the file to your local printer. {Sometimes it is easier and more economical to send out the file. If you only need a few copies, most printers charge approximately $1 per sticker page. That can be a cheaper option than buying a full package of sticker paper. Another option is to print on card stock and use glue.}
3. Your stickers will print on 8.5 x 11 sheets and need to be cut.
4. Cut the individual circles by hand or use a 3 inch circle craft punch.
5. Peel off the sticker backing and attach to your plastic container.
6. Voila! Add your party snack or favor!

How do I order?
You can purchase the plastic containers through the etsy shop or email sweetpeachpaperie@gmail.com for your invoice. The printable sticker files are also available in the shop.

How many containers come in a pack?

The plastic containers come in sets of 12. Feel free to request a larger quantity if more are needed.

Of all printables, I seem to get the most questions about water bottle wraps. For today’s Tuesday Tip, I hope to answer all those questions. They are truly super simple to create!!

What kind of water bottles should I buy?
I find Aquafina water bottles or Kroger brand bottles (12 pack) to work the best. The wraps will fit on any standard water bottle, but the particular shape of these brands make the wrap completely smooth to the bottle. For some reason, the bottles change shape from a Kroger 12 pack to a 24 pack so be sure to grab the 12 pack if you purchase the Kroger brand. Those pictured above are the Aquafina water bottles. The SPP wraps are nearly identical to the size of the Aquafina wraps so they work perfectly!

What kind of paper do you use to print your wraps?
I print all my wraps on glossy copy paper and then trim to size. Your local printing company and most office copy centers (Staples, Office Max, etc.) offer a glossy paper option if you choose to print professionally.

Do your wraps fit a particular Avery label?
No, the wraps do not require an Avery label, simply 8.5 x 11 paper.

Is it better to print the wraps on copy paper or sticker paper?
Either option works, but I find it easier to work with paper compared to sticker sheets.

How do you keep your water bottles cold?
After attaching the wraps, chill the water bottles in the fridge overnight. Just before the party, lay them out. If I need to keep extras on ice, I do not submerge the whole bottle. Simply push the base of the bottle into the ice. The paper wraps are not waterproof.

How do you assemble the wraps?
1. Print your wraps on 8.5 x 11 sheets.
2. Trim the wraps to size. A cutting board makes this job easiest!!
3. Remove the Aquafina or Kroger wrap from your bottle.
4. Replace with your new SPP wrap!
5. Use a bit of glue to adhere the wrap and seal with a piece of clear tape if needed.
6. Voila!!

If you have further questions, I’m happy to help! I promise, they are super easy!!

As I shared earlier this month, I worked extremely hard to be an early Christmas shopper this year.  I am usually a December 24th, one last thing, wrapping at midnight, kind of girl.  For the first time in my entire life, I set a goal to shop early and be done by December 1st.  Drum roll please….. I AM DONE!!!!!!!!  With exception to a few stationery orders (my family is probably so tired of paper), I somehow met my goal!  I can’t even tell you how excited I am!!!  I love Christmas, I love being out in the hustle and bustle.  I just want to be out without the pressure of finding that last gift. Most importantly, I want to truly enjoy this season with my family and teach my little girls the incredible purpose for our grand celebrations.  It’s not about presents.  It’s not about us.

Last year, we started an advent tree with special ornaments to hang each day.  With each ornament came a nightly devotional and sweet family time with purpose.  This year,  the girls will open an envelope each night that shares a service project, fun activity or act of kindness that we will do the next day.  Most of my ideas came from a wonderful blog, Lil Light O’Mine.  Does your family have an advent calendar? There are so many fun and meaningful ways to countdown to Christmas.  I hope your family can treasure this very special month!

Anyone need a little cuteness on this year’s backpack? With a few simple steps, you can create your own luggage tag, diaper bag tag, anything you want it to be!

1. Purchase your choice enclosure card printable. The rectangle style works best.
2. Print and cut your enclosure cards.
3. Take one of the enclosures to your local print shop or office supply store.
4. Request your enclosure be laminated into a luggage tag (often just $1 to do so!)
5. Once laminated, add a ribbon bow with a little clear glue.
6. Voila! You have a darling little tag!

I made one for our sweet friend Ellie Ruth and used it to add a little fun to her birthday present last weekend. I still can’t get enough of our party pink and green!

This week may just be full of party idea posts! I wish I had more time to cruise party blogs, but unfortunately, my days are too busy with eating bon bons and watching Golden Girls. However, I have been on the search for the girls’ birthday party and came across another cute and easy idea. We all like easy!! Thought this would be a great favor for the Sweet Shoppe Collection. Thanks Mighty Girl for the cutesy favor idea. My girls love sidewalk chalk! The evidence is on our patio furniture that the girls decided to decorate this afternoon when the sidewalk was “too full”. Oh my sweet 3 year olds to be! :)
