        Thanks so much everyone! It was a lot of work but didn't feel like it as it was a little here and alittle there.

              Wow! Everything looks amazing! I love your first aid kits! Did you do the labels yourself? If so, do you have a template you'd be willing to share?

              Also, this may be a dumb question, but I also want to do labels for water bottles. Did the ones you buy already have a label on that you covered? Or were they empty- or did you have to remove the existing ones? Thanks!!!

                I did the first Aid kits. The template is too big to post due to the JPEG, but if you PM me your email address I will send it to you, same with the water bottle labels.

                I bought Kirkland water at Cabo Costco (don't know why they don't see mexican water there) so it was a bit more expensive (about $79.00 Pesos). Then my mom and I removed all the labels (didn't take long as we were watching the sunset and drinking margaritas). We then wrapped the new labels on them. This took a little longer as I wanted them to be perfectly straight when they matched up in the back. OVerall, I would say it took the 2 of us about 2 hours to do 200. The small bottles were harder, I would use a more narrow label than the 2 inch one I made orginally for big bottles. I switched to small bottles for the cocktail reception and welcome party as we just had our Xmas party and I am so tired of throwing away 1/2 bottles every year so this year I did small bottles and found no wasted ones.
