{Tuesday Tips} Water Bottle Wraps

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!!
