Hey guys! So I'm making a bunch of spa baskets for Christmas but I need some help with packaging labels. I made soaps and decided to wrap them in saran wrap and cut out a little piece from card stock and write the "flavor" on it and tie it on there via ribbon.

I made headache balm (kept in 1oz tins) and lip balm (kept in lip tubes) and I need labels for them! Any ideas or supplier stores where I can purchase some?

Thanks in advace guys!  Kiss

I use Avery labels for most things, a couple I buy specialty water proofed labels online. Office Depot or other office stores carry Avery, even Target probably. For lip balm tubes I do full page labels and cut them out with a straight cutter (it takes a little work to get it set up in word, but I have a template I made if you want) but you can wrap it all around the tube and stick the label to itself and it won't fall off. You can get round or rectangle labels in tons of different sizes too, so it works out well if you want to print them off.

If you are just wanting to hand write labels you might look for cute address labels that have a picture/pattern on the border or edge or maybe some Christmas package labels, the sticky kind that aren't very big? I'm not sure if you could find some that don't have "to" and "from" on them or not, but that might work too.

http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=7 is the recipe. I added a few more drops of lavender cause 15 wasn't enough for me.

Avery labels? Is that the brand name or type of label? I've never heard of it. And may I have that template you made?

I use Avery labels pretty often as well. You can actually download a lot of their templates online at www.Avery.com. You can also download "DesignPro", a free label making program from Avery that contains almost all of their label templates.  I use this program all the time and would recommend it. It's very easy to use and the labels look great.

Most office supply stores will sell their labels. If your lucky, the shop you go to, like Staples, will have a store brand that can use Avery templates. It's usually quite a bit cheaper. Just check the package to see if it says anything about being compatible with Avery label templates.

I think Avery is great--  they even have a .pdf version of the template so that you can use it in Illustrator or Photoshop--  that's what I used to make my labels!
