Vintage Pharmacy labels


Made this notebook for my BIL who is a pharmacist. I found this web site, Just Something I made, that had vintage Apothecary labels and just had to doctor-up this notebook.

I bought the notebook at Wal-Mart great price due to school supplies in high demand. I covered it with Scotts quick dry glue and Stampin' Up DSP. (back)

Printed the labels on white card stock and cut them all out. To give it an older feel I inked the sides of the notebook and inked the labels with my brown Color Box cats eye ink. Adhere them with Mod Podge and then spritz them with Glimmer Mist.
The colors I used were Sand and Sea Glass.

I like how a few spots hit a label and made it more vintage.
