Labels from Containers
« on: June 29, 2014, 02:48:15 PM »
Hi Guys
              I have over the weekend just modded several plastic containers into labels.

              Pic 1 shows plant labels cut from a large yoghurt pot, managed to make 15.  They last longer than bought labels, and take permanent waterproof ink very well. This batch is for the tomato plants I have recently planted out.

   Pic 2. Shows a label cut from a spread container, inserted into a jar of fasteners.  These are just a couple of examples.  Labels can be made to suit, I punch holes in those I want to tie on, using a leather punch.  My labels are mainly used for garden and workshop use.

                                                 Cheers  David
