A fun and creative idea!....
One day while visiting with my friend Knitty at http://lazydayandsundays.blogspot.com/
I noticed she had written a post about label's. Knitty loves labels and has some very creative and charming uses for them. She was in the process of planning a baby shower and she had just made the sweetest label's to place over miniature candy bars that I had ever seen. On that same post she had a picture of a smiley face label on a tea bag. I thought it was so cute that I decided to make some of my own. Mine aren't exactly like Knitty's but I think they turned out rather well.
First I took a smiley face sticker and inserted it into my photo album. Then I transferred it to paint and erased the yellow background. I probably could have just made the smiley face in paint but I didn't. Oh well, maybe next time. I'm still in the process of learning. After I erased the yellow background I transferred it back to my photo album. Then I made the labels using an Avery template as Knitty suggested.
The only Avery labels I had at the time were long and thin but since then I have purchased larger ones.
After I finished the label's I attached them to teabags. I have a special friend who is coming to visit me on Saturday and we always drink tea together. Do you think she will notice the smiley face on her teabag?
Since visiting Knitty I have been on a label making frenzy! These labels have me thinking of other things I could do with them. I can decorate tea bags for holidays and birthdays, add verses, or funny little sayings of some sort. I'm even thinking of making labels for wine glasses. Thank you Knitty for sharing this fun and creative idea!
Do you like using labels for other things besides addresses? If so, what are some of the ways in which you like to use them? I would love to hear from you.
I hope all of you are having a bright and sunny day ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
