Sometimes you have that container that you are recycling. And it’s looking less than pretty. We all have them laying around either in the kitchen or the bath or moving from room to room. In our house, it’s this popcorn container where I put some of my dog’s food.
I wanted to make sure that I labeled it correctly because even though it obviously looks like dog food, sometimes we have dog treats that look like yummy human cookies.
It takes less than an hour to make something like this.
Start by picking the container and a digital kit of your choice.
- Mellow Starter Kit by Basic Grey
- a container
- Red Sticky tape
Let’s get started!
Measure the circumference of the container allowing for some overlap to secure the label. Play around with papers and elements to create a nice layout for the front of the container. In this case, I made sure that I measured out about how much of the label would be visible when I put the container where it is stored and kept the main elements and label about that size.
When I add shadows on my hybrid projects, I usually make the shadows a bit bigger and deeper than normal so they look real when printed.
Another tip is to use regular paper, not cardstock, for your container labels. Regular paper will conform to the shape of the container easier and it will stay in place with less effort.
Secure the label in place by applying red sticky tape to the back of the label and where the label overlaps before applying it to the container.
