    It would be good to know what kind of adhesive used worked the best to keep the labels on the envelopes. The envelopes are paper so any glue tha sticks to paper? What weight paper worked best?
    Thanks for the feed back in advance

    I wrote you about the CD envelopes. The cookies have to first be wrapped in plastic wrap or they will leave oil marks on the CDs. I ran off a little label about our church picnic and attached it to the clear circle. It was very small.

    Sorry, please ignore both (repeated) comments below.

    What is the best thing to use to adhere the labels, so that they don't awkwardly rip the package?

    I am trying to figure out how user "bjhancher" deleted the pictures on the template and added her own what card program does this?

    I used a card program I had and used the Christmas graphics. I deleted the pictures on the template and added the holiday pictures. I added my own greetings for a Happy Holiday. I handed them out to co-workers. Everyone wanted to know where I purchased the cookie envelopes. They were a great hit. Used it two years in a row, now everyone waits for the Holiday cookie.

    How about a Christmas label?????

  • esauer1 29 May, 2008

    These would be a nice way to welcome new neighbors or send in a care package to college students, service personnel, or young adults working away from home. It would also be a nice send-off for neighbors who are moving or others of the above.

    Adobe writer is free - just go to adobe.com and download it. Also, you could make your labels in any graphics program like Print Artist, Print Shop, etx.

    How were you able to manipulate the label? I'd like a sheet of just Valentine labels, and just birthday. I don't have Adobe writer access.

    I manipulated the label to celebrate the birth of our son and then handed these out to the nurses, doctors and staff during my stay at the hospital. It was a hit!
