Things You'll Need

  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Printer
  • Graphic Design Software
  • Paper
  • Glue
  • Computer

Measure the circumference of the cigar with a piece of measuring tape and write down the measurement.

Using a graphic design application such as MS Paint or Adobe Photoshop, click on "File" then "New" to create a new document. Set the width of the document 1/2 inch longer than the circumference of your cigar, and set the height at 39 pixels. Make your design and save it as a JPEG file.

Double click on the JPEG file you just saved to open it. Click the printer icon to print the image on your home printer.

Use a pair of scissors to cut out the band. Wrap the band around the middle of the cigar and place a drop of glue on the backside where the ends meet and overlap to seal the cigar band.
