Thank you for the video, I was able to make labels for the 8 oz bottles of water for my daughter's quinceanera. I used Microsoft 10 and saved it as a PDF then printed at the copy store. SO grateful!

I made my label...but when I went to copy it...the top lettering in my circle dosen't copy..dont know what I did wrong.
Tammy Thomas (8 months ago)
Thank you so much...that is a big help for next time...
Tracey Hull (8 months ago)
Sometimes if objects are layered on top of eachother, they don't copy...youll have to move the object on top over, copy the object underneath then movie it back...kind of a pain but I hope that helps!

Thank you for making it plain. I think my baby shower water bottle labels are fantastic. I was able to follow every step.

What about the paper that it prints on, the sticky label kind
Dean Mason (1 year ago)
Tracey Hull thanks for the reply and helpful tip, is this the only software that’s free, I’ve only seen trial programs
Tracey Hull (1 year ago)
I actually print on stock paper and use clear packaging tape over it to have it stick to the water bottle and turns out fantastic!
Shan TheGem (1 year ago)
What type of appear is used and also what adhesive is used to secure label into bottle?
Tracey Hull (1 year ago)
Easiest thing to do is purchase clear packaging tape and use that. Cut the water bottle labels out, then get your packaging tape and cut it slightly longer than your label, then you keep it taught and lay it on top of the label so it covers it completely. Then you just secure one edge of the tape to the water bottle then ring it around and tape the other end over...they turn out beautiful!

BNCouraged Designs (1 year ago)
what paper do you use to make these
Mooshi Mooshi (1 year ago)
Do you know how I can make miniature labels if I just save Oreo label from google and make it a small size like about the size of a dime and then how do I save it without losing resolution?? I’ve saved logos from google before, went on word and saved it when I tried to print it out it said something like “low resolution” with like a yellow triangle ⚠️ that the picture was not saved. What do I save it under and how do I keep the resolution? Thanks so much in advance
Tracey Hull (1 year ago)
Where are you trying to get it printed? Are you printing from .pdf or .doc?
Mooshi Mooshi (1 year ago)
Tracey Hull I don’t think you understand me I said after I save it and take it to the store the triangle symbol appears that then says low resolution and I just wanted to know if you can tell me what I need to save it under in word to print out with normal resolution
Tracey Hull (1 year ago)
You're using word? You get the yellow rectangle in word when making it smaller, I've never come across that so I cant help...sorry.
Very helpful! Thank you! 😀

How can I wrap it around a bottle?
Tracey Hull (1 year ago)
You can use packaging tape (the clear tape used to ship packages). All you do is cut the labels out.....put them on a glass or plastic surface and then sticky side down stick the label to the tape (it should fit nearly perfect). Then you just wrap it around the bottle. Works perfect!
GuruVedharamanan R (1 year ago)

Jennifer Harris (2 years ago)

Pamela Wooten (1 year ago)

kendra pooh (2 years ago)
Hi! thanks for the tutorial! I was wondering when creating will I have to keep creating for each label or is there a way to duplicate to save time?
kendra pooh (2 years ago)
Awesome!!!! Thanks again! I'll take a look!
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)

Hello Tracy this video was great I got lost a few times but I just stopped and replayed and went step by step until I figured it out. The only part I couldn't figure out is how to get the border around the entire image without it being around the images that I copied and pasted.
Adrienne Mangham (2 years ago)
Yeah I got lost too.But overall great video
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
When you say "entire image" what do you mean? The border around the label is acutally just a border around the rectangle shape.....the border around the inside circle is just a border around the circle shape.  Does that help?  I do go a bit fast as the videos would be really long if not...I do assume most will just stop and rewind when necessary...so glad they turned out!
Erica Tabaosuarez (2 years ago)
hello! the video is very useful. I just wanna know what microsoft did you use
Elizabeth Fernandez (2 years ago)
hi how do you get the line to help you center it?
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
Go to Page Layout > Align > Ensure Use Alignment Guides is checked...that should work
PJ Wright (2 years ago)
I do appreciate the video.
Lynne B (2 years ago)
This was great, thanks.
Lainey Riley (2 years ago)
Awesome Video....thank you for sharing
Tanisha Candler (2 years ago)
When inserting the background instead of copying and pasting could I just do 2 inches height and 8 inches width so that the background fits in the original box
Tanisha Candler (2 years ago)
Thank you
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
No, you cant, it will elongate the picture.  There is an option to tile but that wont work with the polka dot background.  You can take a look at my most recent video (Star Wars invitations or star wars water bottle labels) to learn how to tile, but again, it will only work with certain stripes and non sequential backgrounds.

Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
I don't have a specific video on downloading and installing fonts but f you watch how to make printable gift tags, how to make printable tags with ppt or how to make your own fill in the blank thank you cards, they all show how to download and install new fonts, here's one of the links and I'll put in a video on fonts soon, thanks for the feedback.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-7xMQBJHCM

Thank you. very clear & precise ..... and you just saved me hours of trial & error (and frustration) being a novice at this stuff. I'm soooo excited!
Reeshemah Simmons (2 years ago)
Thank you
Reeshemah Simmons (2 years ago)
Thank you for sharing, that really was helpful!! One question, what type of paper or adhesive labels to use to print on?
Bere Mnz (2 years ago)
Tracey Hull cold water.. wouldnt it ruin the paper? do you recommend another type of paper that will be water proof
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
I use stock paper (thick paper).  Once you cut out the labels, you get the clear masking tape and it should fit nearly perfect around the label.  Using the masking tape rather than sticker paper will help make the label look smoother!
Liasha Prior (2 years ago)
If you wanted to create mutiples of the labels , do you have to create them one by one or is there a way to make one label and then copy that one and paste it mutiple times?
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
I just made a video on how to do this https://youtu.be/3lWNIyOPx4c
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
Yes, you can do a select all (cntl-A) and copy and paste.  It takes a bit of getting used to but once you figure out the spacing not bad....another option is that you can copy objects one by one and paste them on top of one another, that's usually what I do as I find it easer then working the spacing on the select all...I'll try to make a video next week....hope that helps!
mamatosh05 (2 years ago)
Thank you for sharing!  It's very helpful watching your video. Question, when you filled in the box with the polka dots, can you use a pattern fill instead the steps you used?
mamatosh05 (2 years ago)
Why thank you! That was nice of you to include the steps.  Keep the videos coming & I know your channel will attract more viewers .  Your channel is so helpful.
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
hey there, believe or not, I was thinking about your question and I did forget that you CAN pattern fill BUT you need to be sure the pattern is cut the correct way.  Here's how you do it:  Insert a shape > Shape Fill > Texture > More textures >  The format picture will come up on the left hand side > Click on > Picture or Texture Fill > Click on Picture or Texture Fill > Insert Picture From > (select your file) > CLICK Tile Picture at Texture (two boxes below) and that will tile your picture.  I hope that helps.
mamatosh05 (2 years ago)
+Tracey Hull Got it. Thanks for replying
Tracey Hull (2 years ago)
Not sure what you mean by "pattern fill".  There are pre-canned patterns in MS Word which are horizontal strips, vertical, dots, etc...but those don't give you a lot of flexibility to change shapes, colors, sizes....the other option is to "fill" the shape with a background picture.  Problem with using that is that the picture will get stretched...if you're using horizontal strips, no problems but the polka dots will get warped...hope that helps.
Carla Smith (2 years ago)
Hello you are so awesome! if i wanted to add a photo from my personal pictures do i just hit insert picture, just as you did?

Yup!  That's exactly how you do it.
