First cut the tops off of the bottles and hot glue them to a piece of cardboard.  

Next put the Dot Labels on the bottle tops.  You will need at least 4 of each color (red, blue, green, orange, yellow). Then print out the cards and you are ready to go.

The first time Kysen decided to match the colors one row at a time. 

            

The second time he decided to do one color at a time.
