I'm relatively new to Ai & I don't normally have to do anything on the creative side.  I am stuck.  I need a third label (label being the red square with our Logo) to "curve" up the left side to look like it's a sticker on a roll.  I've tried warping effects but nothing looks right.  I asked someone who suggested photoshop but I have no photoshop experience.  Can someone help or make a suggestion for what tools I can use?

A couple ideas. Make the sticker a brush and apply it to a shirt curved line. Make spree sticker a symbol and map it onto a cylinder.

Draw a circle then go to Effects > 3D > Extrude and bevel. Extrude the circle to make a cylinder and play with rotation to get the position right. Thickness isn't important because you'll hide the cylinder. Click on Map Art and use the label which you made into a symbol. Click invisible geomer5y so only the label shows. Scale, rotate, and position the label as desired. It's a bit of a crap shii5, since the feature is buggy and very weak.
