    So....

    I've printed them out, and it's off to get them cut. I like to use a paper-cutter for this (doh!) rather than scissors. It makes a cleaner and sharper cut.

    So I cut them carefully.

    And move back down to the wine cellar. Here, I get the things I need together.

    1. Labels
    2. Wine bottles (with the wine in them!)
    3. Glue stick
    4. The template/bottle holder
    5. A primary lid

    1-3 are pretty self-explanatory I think.

    To 4: I just made one for myself. No rocket science needed to make something like this. You need something that holds a bottle and some dark, straight lines.

    To 5: This is optional, but I find it easier to clean up. I use the lid to glue the labels on. It's easy to wash, and I can flip it over when the one side gets gluey. You need to remember to get the corners and the edges of the labels glued well.

    Place the bottle on the template/bottle holder.

    Get your glue-stick, a label and start glueing.

    I usually do the edges first, then make an "x" in the middle of the label.

    Line the label up to the black template line (you can have more than one, as seen in the previous pictures), and paste the label.

    Make sure you press the edges around very well.



    And voila! There you go!

    Repeat this step about 25 times. And then you're done!

    By using the primary lid, you can just throw it in the sink and clean it up without problems.

    As the glue is water-soluble, it's easy to get off hands, feet, lids, and yes, even bottles!
