Recently, I shared several antique apothecary labels with you, for Antique Graphics Wednesday. I have lots of old apothecary bottles, but sometimes I'm hesitant about altering original bottles, but I love using new jars and bottles, that might otherwise be thrown away, and altering them to make them look old.
Turning them into little apothecary bottles is as simple as printing & cutting out the labels,
and adhering them to the bottles. I used my original labels, so the ink didn't smudge. Unless you have a laser jet printer, I recommend having a page of the labels printed somewhere (like Staples), where you can get an laser jet copy made. I used spray adhesive to stick it on.
I've never shared the poison label before, so here it is.

For a printable 8-1/2" x 11" version of all these labels on one page, click HERE. You could tea-dye them, if you like really aged-looking labels, but mine darkened up a little just spraying the adhesive to the back of them.
If you want to alter the size of the labels, use the individual images found HERE.Blessings,
