Making The Seal’s For The Bottles’.

To make the seals choose a rectangle and drag into a narrow line, just like you did in the steps above.

Now choose 2 stars and position on each end of your line before selecting all and choosing weld in the bottom right hand corner, then colour your seal.

To add personalisation look for a simple image, I chose a black spiders webs and selected a simple line of dots in images decorate the top.

Once you are happy, position, right click and click attach in the bottom right corner. Now size and also duplicate until you have the right amount before sending your labels to the Cricut Joy.

Once the labels are cut carefully attach to each test tube. Additionally, fill the tube with your colour changing drink and attach the bottle seal over the cork to secure the bottle.

Serve all your magic potion bottles together in a glass alongside a tray of glasses full of ice and tonic. However the labels are not waterproof and the ink will smear so do not submerged them.
