Freebies: Labels for Homemade Gifts

The greatest gift is a portion of thyself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is a sample image of the 1.5" x 3" labels you can download below at full size.
I know that many of you will be making (or already have made) homemade gifts for the upcoming Holiday season.

We all know that what is inside is most important, but it doesn’t hurt to pay attention to the outside as well!

Different gift bottles, jars and other containers require different shaped labels. It takes time to hunt down artwork that looks Christmas-y, and yet has room for you to write to identify the contents of your gift.

Your search is over. On this post are links to four different sizes of label artwork, each downloadable in a resolution able to be printed at the quality your homemade gift deserves (that’s “high” quality by the way).

I can’t take credit for the background. It’s a free image I found.

Choose the size you need –  each set is on 8.5x11 paper
1.5” wide x 3” high   |   2” wide x 2.5” high   |   3” square   |   4” wide x 2” high 

These are sizes I find most useful for jars, bottles, boxes, etc., when I make homemade gifts.

How to save the files
1. Each image file below is linked to the high resolution image.

2. Click on the label you want. Don’t worry about the size it may appear on your screen.

3. From there, save the image to your computer. For some computers that's a "right click" but not all...

4. When you print the downloaded file, the individual labels will appear in the size listed in its name, as below.

5. Trim out and attach to your homemade treasures.

Enjoy, and happy homemade gifting!
