Hey Good Lookin, What's Cookin?

I'm loving printable labels!

Hey y'all!  I finally packaged up our homemade vanilla extract for Mother's Day gifts and wanted to share with you the final result - kinda cute isn't it?

Thanks to the one and only Martha, I dressed up the bottles with these pretty labels.  In case, like me, you live under a rock and didn't realize the abundance of downloadable goodies over there, check out marthastewart.com to find lots of fabulous (and free!) labels and clipart for favor bags and boxes.

I had laminating sheets already, so I printed the labels on regular paper, cut out the circles, and stuck them onto the laminating sheet, then cut a square around the circle and placed this on the bottles of vanilla extract.  Easy peasy.  (You can also buy paper for your printer that has an adhesive backing.)

I put a little note on the back, also printed on a medallion clipart of Marty's, but you could also list the ingredients, or how to replenish the homemade vanilla.  (Nana, act surprised when your grandchildren give this to you!)

I handwrote the directions on a gift tag and attached it to the outside of the bottle.


I think we'll bake something delish, and deliver it in a basket with the homemade vanilla and some flowers.
I heart homemade!

Check out these other labels from Marty for all your entertaining needs!
