Label Maker Love

Yesterday, I finally broke down and got a label maker. Mostly, I decided to get it because I really wanted to label my keys. I have so many that sometimes it takes me 5 minutes to get in my door which is not very safe. It took me about 10 minutes to label all my keys. I still create separators on my key chain... like my keys, other people's backup keys, etc and find a new cute key chain (I believe that my last one suffered a fate similar to my eaten gladiator sandals).

I had also gotten a photo box for my sister to put all her cards in for her baby shower coming up so I had to label it of course.

I also wanted to do something kinda fun with the gift bags for her shower, so I simply printed off a label and added some scrap ribbon. I think it would look even cooler with the embossed labels but I didn't think to grab that last night.

If I were to get the embossed tape, I would make something like this:

I also think it would be great to print out quotes or sayings I like and make some art. The more and more I think about it, the more I think I need to get an old fashioned embossing label maker.

Another fun thing to do with a label maker:

What fun things do you or have you done with a label maker?

Update: I had a random idea. I needed to update my phone number on my cat's tag but I did not want to shell out the 10 bucks for a completely new tag, so I simply printed out a label and put it on over the old number. Now, is it the most pretty thing in the world? No... but sometimes I like to mix it up.

    P.S. That is the most organized set of keys I've ever seen. You should be very proud.
