Division of Potions
Saturday, 4 February 2012
Several of my favorite projects have grown out of the need to just add that little extra “something” to a package or letter. In the case of this potions seal, I needed a way to safely ship a glass bottle. Originally, I used small brown boxes, but they proved both expensive and unwieldy. My current solution involves a “Tootsie Roll”-style wrapping of brown paper and twine sealed with the potions sticker. The Latin saying above the eagle is: Bibere venenaum in auro (Drink poison from a cup of gold).
Download this PDF and print it onto sticker paper. Cut out the stickers and apply to EVERYTHING. They look great on a paper coffee cup over the Starbucks logo. (Or you can get a great looking ceramic mug with it professionally silkscreened here.
