If you're anything like me, packing consists of shoving full size cosmetic bottles in the zipper portion of your luggage...often the morning of your trip. But when I recently realized how much that bevy of bottles weighs, how frequently I fly and how close my baggage often teeters to that 50 lb max...
...I knew it was time to get a bit more travel-savvy.
These little personalized bottles are easy-peasy, inexpensive, splash-safe and you can crank out a whole batch of them in ten minutes or less. And I spend much less time sniffing bottles to figure out which is which, only to slather my legs with spendy conditioner and wash my hair with $2 lotion.
And yes, that's happened more often than I'd like to admit. ;)
Small travel bottles Double-sided tape
Washi tape Scissors
Contact paper A pretty pen
Plain white paper
Step 1: Cut out a thin strip of paper, and label it. Use your cutest pen, obviously.
Step 2: Place a little double sided tape on the back of paper strip and attach to a small bottle.
Step 3: Cut washi tape strips long enough to fit around all the way around the bottle. Attach, framing your paper label.
Step 4: Place bottle on contact paper to measure out the amount needed, making sure the contact paper will extend just beyond washi tape. Remove backing and carefully apply around bottle. Smooth out any bubbles and press the edges firmly to create a good splash-safe seal.
Ta-da! Much cuter, and endlessly more functional.
