By the 1920ies, the seed catalogs have ceased to be colorful works of art, depicting the various flowers. Instead they now feature black and white photograpies, surely a marvel to the readers of the time, but for us, these catalogs are sadly boring. However, some fun artwork can still be found, and reinvented, like this red swirl frame, I used to create labels:
I repeated 10 labels on a sheet, so you can print it out and label your stuff! Print the labels on cardstock, or print them on a full sheet of paper with sticky backing (sticker paper) to use these for your pantry, as to-and-from labels on gifts, for your notebooks, for scrapbooking, or even as small notecards.
Here is the original page I used to create the label:
I printed a couple of labels quite large, and used for my upstairs bathroom:
I ran my two large labels through the laminator, since these will be in a humid environment, and hot glued some magnets to the back to stick them on my IKEA Knodd bins. I’m still mad that I came home without the handles for the smallest bin after our summer trip, but IKEA is so far away from my house I only visit a couple of times per year. I will get the missing handles next time I go, for sure!!
In case you too have bins for garbage and laundry, I’m also including these labels, although it is probably a long shot that anyone has exactly those two containers in need of labeling…lol
