Try It Tuesday

I’m sure if you spend any time on Facebook, you’ll see those videos starring arms not attached to a body, making delicious treats or awesome crafts in seemingly zero time. I saw this one the other day:

 

I was super excited because I wanted to jazz up the bathroom at the Mother’s Day Out place I work a few times a week with some jars of mints and chocolate (because, kids) and thought this would be perfect!

I gathered my stuff:

try-it-jar-label-1

 

I did as the video instructed. I placed the tape over the paper (and rubbed the tape with a Popsicle stick):

try-it-jar-label-2

Then, I cut out the piece I wanted to use and dropped it in a bowl of water for 1 minute:

After that, I not-so-easily removed the paper from the tape:

try-it-jar-label-5

The ink was nowhere to be found and the tape wasn’t even sticky anymore! Yeah. Total bust. I ended up just printing off labels and covering it with packing tape. Sigh.
