I found a bunch of old medicine dropper bottles at a yard sale, and wanted to display them, but they where too plain with no labels, so I went online to google images and searched for 'poison'
Originally I was just going to put a skull and crossbones on, but found a great collection of old medicine labels, and so I got a bit creative.
Step 1: What I Found
I printed them out on my B/W laser printer, and started playing with how I could age them, and make them look more authentic.
Using tea bags, and coffee grounds worked the best, Also I found that if I soak a blank sheet of paper in a pan with tea bags and water - let it soak over night, then let it air dry for a day or two, then run THAT thru the printer the results where AWESOME
also used the same method with a color inkjet printer with similar results
bought some double stick sheets at Staples - applied the adhesive
then used a very sharp paper scissors to cut the label to shape
Step 2: The Results!!
I got a bit creative combining black and white and color
and it was a fast and fun experience.
You can use ANY OLD BOTTLE and get creative!
