I was asked recently how I made the tags I used on my Kahlua bottles. Quite simple if you take the time for the little extra details.
For this tag, I cut the size I wanted (about 3” X 1.5”) out of cardstock paper. I punched the hole first, so I wouldn’t end up punching through a word. I used a ruler to make the lines around all edges, then simply made little hash marks out from the line. I didn’t worry about making them all the same length; random is ok. When I finished I decided it still needed something, so I added a few dots. Take a bit of time to doodle a few tags. Before you know it you’ll be obsessed. If you make a mistake, so what?? It’s only a little piece of paper. Try again!
If you’re not feeling steady handed enough to tackle your own tag try worldlabel for free downloadable labels. There are several styles and you can even write in what you want on your label before printing for a totally professional look.
I printed the labels on regular paper then opted to hand write the ingredients and used a glue stick to adhere them on my homemade vanilla. They’re sized to fit blank adhesive labels so there you go.
Now there’s nothing stopping you from adding that bit of detail to your homemade gifts. It’s those little extras that add to the presentation. It’s totally okay if they look handmade; that’s the point.
