Hi bloggy friends! As promised yesterday, I’m back with a sweet little printable for you all to enjoy: Summer Fruit Labels + Gift Tags! The inspiration for these tags came about when I discovered the book Put ‘Em Up at our local library (the awesome hand-lettered tags in the book are by Dan O. Williams / they remind me a lot of Jamie Oliver’s Food Packaging…don’t you agree). I’ve never seen such a creatively executed and inspiring book about canning and food preservation (not usually a topic I gravitate towards)…it made me want to can everything in site (even though I own no actual canning supplies).
Even if you won’t be getting fancy in the kitchen you can still use these tags to label fruits that you want to freeze (what better time than now to take advantage of all the local produce at the farmer’s market or grocery store). You can use the second set of tags (the gift tags) to dress up jars of other homemade goodies or tie them onto presents year round.
Full disclosure – the tag in the photos was my prototype written on a real manila tag. The actual printable version I created for you, mimics the look of a manila tag, and will probably look slightly different than the one in my photos (my printer is still broken, so I wasn’t able to print the actual tags out for this post).
So…here the tags are. There are two different files for you to choose from:
Download: Summer Fruit Labels and Summer Gift Tags. Both will look best printed onto heavy-weight paper. They’d also look awfully charming printed onto adhesive-backed paper and stuck on to jars and presents like stickers.
