Be curious, and be inspired.

A short time ago, the people at Avery* mailed me an assortment of labels to try out with different craft projects. You know me and food, so the natural thing for me to make was some sort of treat with a label to go with it.

The labels that stuck out at me first were these tags (label number 22802). How perfectly they went with my bottles filled with homemade lavender lemonade!


Next, these square labels (number 22805) were perfect for some edible thank you notes I was making.

To make your own creations, you can download the Word template available on Avery’s website, and either make your designs right in Word, as I did with the “drink me” labels, or you can save the template as a PDF and upload it into Adobe Illustrator, or another designing software.


The best part about these labels right now, is that Avery is hosting a contest . . . with a big prize. All you need to do is try out some of these labels, and come up with your very own winning creation. The winner will get $5,000 and their craft idea will be printed in Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Doesn’t that sound fun?

All the details for the contest are found at Put Your Best Brand Forward. The contest starts now, and will end on August 21. So get out there, and get creating. Best of luck to my readers!!
