So, I have no idea why, but I'm on a HUGE organization kick.
As I've mentioned a bazillion times...I'm not naturally organized.
But, after reading many organizing blogs, I was inspired.
I am in love with labeling everything!
It helps me know what goes where, and I hope down the road it helps Levi to learn how to put things back.
AND I figured out an EASY and CHEAP way to make CUTE labels.
All you need is a computer and shipping labels.
First, find a cute image you want for the background.
I happened to have pictures of fabric samples I used.
(Go to fabric.com, right-click and save your favorite fabrics to use!)
Go to picmonkey.com and click 'edit picture'
Select the picture you want for the background
Resize the image to 400 x 200 (If your labels are 4" by 2"...just take whatever your dimensions are for your labels and make the inch into a 100"
Next click an overlay to put on top.
"Geometric" or "Labels" are good ones.
Enlarge the overlay, center it and make it whatever color you'd like
(I chose white)
Next, click the text and choose a font
(I chose Lobster Two)
and select a color, and adjust the size to your liking
Be sure to save your image!
Now, for the other labels, just change the text to what you need.
Next, go to avery.com
Select "print and design online" and type in the design number of the labels you have
Then, select to edit each label at a time
And click to 'add image'
Then adjust the picture to fill the entire label.
Once you've filled the page, click to print!
(Make sure the label paper is in correctly!)
I absolutely LOVE how they have turned out!
