{Tuesday Tips} Plastic Containers & Circle Stickers

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.
