My first contribution to Remodelaholic is a collection of printable labels for your Thanksgiving leftovers. I hope you love them!
My inspiration comes from every family holiday gathering I’ve ever been part of. My large, Italian family is notorious for cooking way more food than is needed and the night inevitably ends with a division of leftovers.
I’ve designed a series of labels that have a space to indicate the contents and date it was packaged. You can either write on the labels with a pen/marker, or type them in yourself ahead of time.
Included in the set are five different sized labels: a large round, a small round, a square, a small rectangle and a large rectangle. There’s also a set of three bonus stickers that read “yummy yummy”, “eat up” and “midnight snack”.
Printing and assembling your labels are as easy as pie (all I could think about when creating these was how much I wanted a slice of pumpkin pie). Simply click below and to receive the PDF file then save to your computer. If you’d like to type in your own information, you can open the files in Adobe Reader (free download). Please make sure to save the files to your computer before typing instead of typing in the browser window (it’s a glitch that won’t let you save or print). Otherwise, you can write in the information yourself after they are printed. The font I used in the photos is called Quickpen, but feel free to use any of the fonts on your computer!
Print your downloads on your home printer or take the files to a local print shop like Staples or Kinkos. I printed on mid-weight printer paper and used my trusty tape gun to attach the labels to my containers and bags. Using double sided tape is a great alternative. You can also make it really easy on yourself by printing right on sticker paper. Once they are printed, all that’s left to do is to trim them out with a pair of scissors or a craft knife and ruler, and stick them on.
I purchased the two bags and the carton seen in the photos from Michael’s. The other two plastic containers were takeout containers that I already had in my kitchen cabinet. Hopefully between the five different sizes you’ll find a size that works for you. The dimensions of the labels are as follows:
Large Rectangle: 7″ x 5″ // Small Rectangle: 4″ x 3″ // Square: 2.5″ x 2.5″ // Large Circle: 4.25″ // Small Circle: 3″
