  • Make the label. Download the printable and print it out on sticker paper. Trim around the edges of the label and use a corner rounder to round corners (if desired). Remove backing and apply to pot. (If you don't want to purchase sticker paper, print the label on cardstock and glue it to the pot instead.)

  • Print out photos, making sure the faces are under 2 inches tall. Use a circle cutter to cut a 2.25 inch circle around each face. OR, find a small cup or other circular item that is about 2.25 inches in diameter and place it over the face. Trace around the object, then use scissors to cut out the face.
