Bottle Labels and Straw Flags for a Birthday Party with Lifestyle Crafts

I am getting ready for my daughter's 2nd birthday party this weekend.  She loves the color purple.  So we are throwing her a purple party!
I made these cute water bottle labels and these cute straw flags so that people can mark their drinks!
I used the Fancy Envelope Tabs Die , along with the L Letterpress  from Lifestyle Crafts to make these darling party favors!  {check out the discount code at the bottom of the page!} 
The Fancy Envelope tabs can be used on so many projects; labels, cupcake toppers, small cards, etc.  And the letterpress embosses and stamps at the same time, creating an amazing professional custom look! 
Here is how you use the letterpress:
First cut out the shape you want to use.

Next aline your printing plate in the back of the clear side of the letterpress platform.  In my case I am using the #2.  The printing plate come with adhesive stickers to use to keep it in place. 

Now, line up your paper and use the foam tabs to keep it in place.  I love that you can create a frame around your shape so that you can use it again to print more then one!

I like to double check that everything lines up before I put any ink on.  

Squrit some ink on the ink base and use your brayer to spread it around,  you want your brayer to have an even cover of ink on it.  Not too thick.   Use your brayer to roll the ink onto the printing plate.

Now close the letter press platform and run it through  your die cutter (Epic 6 in my case)

Take it out and let it dry.  Repeat, repeat repeat... for all your water bottles!

Use adhesive to attach the labels around the bottles. 

Here is a side view:
I used a smaller fancy envelope tab and folded it in half around a straw (with a glue dot between) to make this cute straw flag!  I think it is an adorable way to make a name tag for your drink!
