Mixed Drinks

Mason Jars (small)

Galvanized Bin

Ice

Paper

Large Circle Punch

Labels

Labels

After you know what your cocktails or drinks will be, it’s time to make some labels for the lids. I used this Marvy Uchida hole punch. I printed some labels and “eye-balled” while punching out the labels. It’s not the most fool-proof method, but it still works. To make it even simpler, hand write the labels so formatting is not an issue.

Party time!

All dressed up…

Once you’ve got your labels made, place them inside the lid.
