31 Ways To Use Labels & Tags This Holiday!

clickaveryparty

Back in October I was invited to attend the Click Blogger Retreat in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I learned more about photography in that weekend than my entire life! I also had the honor of planning the closing party for this group of amazing bloggers from all over the country. Have you ever planned a party for 70 people from 2000 miles away? lol.  Neither had I! But with the help of my trusty assistants, Kaitlyn and Britta, we somehow pulled it off!

Since Avery (the label king!) was the generous sponsor of the party, we wanted to incorporate some of their nifty products into the party decorations, which wasn’t very hard because they have so many cool things to work with! Here are just a few!

With the help of the incredibly talented Alma over at Ollibird.com we set out to create a “beach boardwalk” themed party complete with boardwalk food and games!

Here are just a few pictures of the evening’s festivities:

We had SO much fun planning and executing the party! And hopefully the party-goers had fun too!

Based on this picture…I’m guessing they did! ;-) Can’t wait to see you next year ladies!

As I was looking at all the pictures of the party that photographer extraordinaire, Tracey Clark, was kind enough to take for us, my mind starting racing thinking of all the ways that these fun Avery labels and tags could be used this time of year. They are perfect for sprucing up gifts and goodies that go along with the holidays, and, as I discovered, the possibilities are ENDLESS!

Here are 35 ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

  • I began using large tags years ago to mark my baked goods that were donated to fundraising events. My child had severe allergies and I knew how important it was to know ingredients. I listed EVERYTHING and placed a few items or a small bread or cake completely inside a bag with the label closing the opening, that way we knew there was no transfer of components from one item to another. (let alone little hand germs!)

  • This year we filled latched glass jars with homemade chocolate bark. We made five different kind of bark: (my personal favorite) dark chocolate spicy cinnamon with toasted almonds, white chocolate peppermint stick, dark and white chocolate (layered) peppermint stick, white chocolate with toasted macadamia nuts and dried cranberries, and dark chocolate with cashews and coconut. We used Avery 22804 oval labels on top that say Happy Holidays from (our name) and the type of bark. Super cute!

  • I know this contest is over, but I wanted to add my 2 cents, and to ask a question. I use labels mainly to re-purposed jars: save money and do my part for the environment! There are a lot of great ideas here…I especially love the syrup bottles and labels by ‘Matt Bites’ I went to the link, but he didn’t give the recipes out for those syrups :( So that’s my question: who has anyone got some good recipes or ideas?

  • I love putting special labels on jams when I store them away. I have an easy go-to present for special friends who need cheering up or when we go visiting to someone’s house. And it makes a extra-special presentation on those jars that we eat ourselves at home.

  • Organizing storage boxes for work. When packing up the last years paperwork the label has the contents on it. No more looking through tons of boxes in storage for something the accountant wants ( or the boss thinks they need ASAP of course). It’s the only way I am organized!!!

  • I love creating labels for my homemade gifts! I also use labels to keep my office things organized (so my hubby will put things back where they came from! haha!)

  • I label everything around the house. As I get older, I forget where things are and what I bought things for, so I put labels on items, in drawers, on shelves, just everywhere.

  • I use labels in the kitchen, when giving presents for various occasions and in filing for our businesses. That last one is fairly dry, but the labels are very useful! Great ideas in today’s post. I’ll probably be using more Avery now.

  • I’m naturally a very DISorganized person, so labels really help me out! I have many plastic storage boxes full of seasonal items, and just STUFF! Labels listing the contents, placed on the end of each box, have saved many a treasure from being lost forever in the recesses of my basement…..HA!

  • My Mom and I make grape jelly every year from her grapes in her arbor. I love giving most of it away with cute Avery labels explaining how it’s organic and homemade!

  • Jillee, thank you and many blessings for all you share on your blog…these creative ways to use something so simple…a label…to bless the lives of others is wonderful. Thank you for the inspiration!

  • I use labels in the office to label my plastic storage containers and in the kitchen to label a dish I take to a potluck, that way im sure yo get it back. These are great ideas thank you for sharing.

  • I use labels for address labels for invitations. We had fun using the business card labels to make team rosters for my son’s youth baseball team. It has a list of all of the players and names on one side and the team name/logo and the coaches’ contact information on the other side. The parents can keep them in their wallet and have an easy way to find the names to cheer for them by name at the games.

  • I love to label everything! Call me anal, and I would say thank you for the compliment. Although I tend to label everything and organize may surroundings to excess I never lose anything. I will say though if you are wanting help cleaning the house it is better to relax a little as I have scared my kids away from helping out because of my need to have everything just so.

  • Among other places I use labels on my cook book covers to note where the often used recipes are! I know that I can get the page number at a glance and not have to read thru the index and remember what the author called the recipe!

    I also use them in cook books for making notes and doubling measurements etc–handy to have in ONE place if you commonly double that recipe.

    Also use them to label stuff like household cleaners that may not be in their original containers! When you want to keep one bottle or jar of something in both the kitchen and the bath you do NOT want confusion as to what is inside!

  • I’m going to make those laundry labels for my teen daughters, who are good about doing their own laundry. Sometimes it takes awhile to remember all the tips, and it’s easier just to ask Mom. Not that I mind.

  • Being a mother of 3 my memory is shot anymore! LOL If I don’t label all of my things I quickly forget what they are & what they contain! Finding durable labels is tricky! :)

  • Tags & labels, something we can all use everyday, especially holidays. I need to win the giveaway. I love to shop at Staples, but I buy too much, I have to learn to pace myself. Thanks

  • I use labels of all sizes, but they are mostly square. I label home canning jars when the harvest comes in, all my craft room shelves are labeled as well as the containers in the craft room. I tried to label the plant stakes in the garden one year, but my granddaughter moved the steaks around on me, so I went back to diagraming the garden instead.

  • I have just used labels for work and as gift tags, but nothing very creative. After reading your blog, I can’t wait to get more creative and label everything! Thanks!

  • I mostly use labels for work, but with all these ideas I’m sure I can find more fun ways to use labels – especially when I bake goodies for family and friends!

  • labels are great for so many things. i help the teacher i volunteer with label all the folders and bins in her classroom which is for grades 6, 7, and 8. neither the teacher nor i are very well organized people so labels really help!

  • Wow! More great ideas! I use them to label my storage bins and list the contents, gift baskets and to label my various protein powders that I move from the bags to glass jars. Now I have a lot more ideas to try. Sad to say that I have never been inside Staples, so I will have to venture there and check it out.

  • I printed off labels to put on the back of my son’s graduation pictures. I turned it into an announcement by adding a label to the back that read where he planned to attend college in the fall. Office supply stores are definitely a place I love to wander!

  • like to use labels on my re-purposed storage jars and cleaning supplies. I also use them to label things in the freezer and my favorite is to make personalized stickers for my grandkids using small removable labels

  • This is my first year making homemade goodies for Christmas presents, so I’ve been checking out all the labeling options. I think I’ll be going with “Made with love” labels.

  • Like so many have already shared, I too enjoy adding the fun touch of a label, with a personal message, for the one I have made a gift. The added label, with message, seems to say how much I want the person to know how special they are.

  • I just used gift tags at Christmas time but I love this blog post and might start using all these creative ideas and more!!! Thank you for all your amazing posts and for sharing all your ideas!

  • I love labels for my pantry! I always buy in bulk and store dry goods and spices in jars and plastic containers; it’s so great to not confuse my salt and my sugar! Or more importantly, my regular flour and gluten-free flour!!!

  • I mostly use labels and tags on my homemade stuff, especially the things I put in mason jars; so they’re used for lotions, spice mixes, pickles, jams, etc.

  • I use labels and tags for my grand kids items. Crayon box, craft box, school practice sheets, etc. They want their own names on their own boxes. Labels dress the boxes up. Also, we put their names on labels for school items.

  • I’m kind of a neat freak and like to label everything, it would be cool to get these labels, but the lady JO with the granddaughter who’s started baking may really enjoy
    them more. Kids all need someone to look up to and maybe Jo’s granddaughter has that connection with her. Go rejoicing grandma Jo.

  • I have a LOT of nail polish. I have it all sitting upright in a big shoebox. It’s hard to see what colors I have that way without pulling every bottle out to look. So I took some old labels and painted a little bit of the polish onto the label. I took a hole punch and punched out a portion of the label then stuck it on the top of the bottle. I love being able to see what colors I have with just a quick glance!

  • As a scrapbooker, I use labels for everything- gifts, album pages, etc. – but for Thanksgiving tjis year I filled a Mason jar with bittersweet branches and tied napkins and silverware together with a simple orange office label.one side of the label was a placecard name; dinner guests then wrote what we’re thankful for on the other side and hung the labels on the bitter sweet “tree.” Easy and awesome!

  • Hi

    I guess because of all the office work I have done in my life (45 years of being a bookkeeper) I never thought about labels other for office use.
    Your blog post has really made me think of other ways to use them. I intend to start using some for some of the things I am working on now!

  • I recently downsized & could not depart with a lot of my life treasures so I would label my totes so I could switch out my décor without having to dig through all my totes.

  • Well I label most everything, as an avid crafter and I work from home I find I can locate and use all “my stuff” when it is labeled and organized.

  • I made my now grown daughters each a recipe book with all of their favorites that they love for me to make. Avery made it simple and to type and print them out. A small 4×6 photo album worked great to slide the recipes into to preserve and keep them clean during use.

  • I like to use labels for all my storage boxes in the bathrooms, linen closets, kitchen, coat closets, etc. Love all the suggestions you provided in the blog post. You are truly awesome and a blessing to use all. XOXOXOXOXO

  • I like to use labels and tags in the pantry on storage containers, in the mud room to label bins for each child’s gloves, hats, etc., and for craft storage.

  • I tend to use labels for organizing my linen closet (queen sheets vs. baby stuff; bathroom towels vs kitchen towels–hubby never really can tell the difference). I also labeled EVERYTHING in my classroom (science teacher); that way if I was ever out (due to pregnancy, I was) the other teachers or the sub could find anything…and so could I! Labels make the world go round!

  • I have a jewelry shop on Etsy and everything needs labeled – drawers of finished necklaces by color, earrings by type and color, other jewelry, drawers of beads and supplies by color, drawers of mailing supplies, drawers of office supplies, etc! And then there is my huge sewing room and its supplies! I have only used plain white labels up till now. But I see pretty and interesting labels in the future! Don’t know why I never thought of it.

  • My favorite way to use tags in on my homemade goodies such as jam, banana bread and cookies. I am so stealing the Avery idea of “My name is Minty Chocolate Chip Cookie”. When there is a bake sale at the high school, the teens will love it!!
    Thanks for all of the great ideas!!

  • I love to label everything! Where the dishes go in the cupboard is a fun one. My favorite thing to label is my home made toothpaste and body products.

  • if you need a job try this site JOBS61 (dot)¢øm. Dan does it at home and makes $28.99 hourly just sitting and typing stuff all day…No experience needed too

  • I use them for gift tags. Last year I loved the Avery labels I printed out for my mason jar gifts (home made toffee). Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • I love making my own labels & gift tags! I especially like using the canning labels from Ball that wash off when you are finished with the goodies in the jar!

  • My favorite was to use to use labels is to label my crafting supplies. I put labels on bins, jars, boxes etc….It saves me so much time when I am looking for something. Also the labels look cute too.

  • I always use them for address labels, but I am trying the hot chocolate jars I saw on the One Stop DIY shop so I want to make the gift tags to hang on those. I also have dogs & a lot of friends who have dogs so I have decided to make treat bags for them as well. I think some of the labels to stick on the bag will be cute!

  • I love to make labels for all of my homemade lotions, creams, butters, and salves! It’s a nice way to dress them up and share the all natural goodness with others!

  • My favorite thing to do with labels is to use them on my canning jars! I’ve just started canning this past Summer, so it’s definitely still a novelty. :)

  • I LOVE avery labels – I used the for my wedding programs, favors and table signs. They are so amazing – they have everything. I am a big fan. I also use them to make my return address labels and business cards. Thanks for all the great ideas

  • I like to use labels on homemade body products like chapstick and lotion bars! The little address labels make for adorable little chapstick labels :)

  • Since I do a lot of gluten free baking, I use my labels to keep track of all the different types of flours and other ingredients I need for baking. Works like a charm!

  • Living with a disorganized home office closet for years brought nearly a thousand index cards into our house, so I’ve been using them as labels for my closet and pantry. This way, people who share the space know exactly where to put everything away and where to check for more before restocking! All the stacks and bins in my clothes closet are labeled, so even when the stacks get messy they never have the wrong stuff in them. I have found that labels help immensely in organization systems that are shared between multiple family members.

    I also have designed to/from Christmas tags for the past two years, and this year on a blog I discovered printable Avery tags with strings. Guess who doesn’t have to cut out little rectangles now?

  • I use labels to label all the jars I have canned. I also store all the dry items (flour, sugar,pasta, beans, etc) in my pantry in jars and use labels to show what is in those.

  • Hi – When I moved into a home with limited storage, I had an “AH-HA” moment – I bought a set of 6 stackable, multicolored boxes and stored my baking goods in them. I label each box with the contents, and stored them on my shelving unit — all my baking supplies take up less than 1 sq. ft. — of course, they go UP 4 feet. I really think this is one of the most creative things I have done, and it looks so nice, too.

  • I love to label everything! I guess my favorite way to label is food…but you have really given me “food for thought” on this new way to label food! I would LOVE to win this contest and totally spend it all on labels at Staples! Thank You! Shirley McFarland

  • Avery labels are wonderful products – thanks so much for linking all these great sites for making the labels so fancy! I plan to use quite a few this year!

  • I like to pre-write name tags for kids who attend my child’s birthday party. I make them easy to read and put it on the back of their tee shirt so any adult can easily help them.

  • I love labeling my bakeware so I can take them places without fear of them getting lost. I would love to win this and bless a lot of people with homemade (and cutely labeled) gifts for Christmas. I loved the photos and ideas. Merry Christmas!
