The summer holidays are the perfect time to get creative and encourage your children to try their hand at new things, including having a go at arts and crafts projects. Here at Label Planet, we have a whole range of colourful labels that can be put to use in all kinds of ways, whether you’re looking for extra craft materials to inspire your children with or you’ve got a particular project in mind.
For example, you might be looking at taking on a family project that’s fun but will also come in useful; whether you’re making collages or creating homemade photo albums, trying to get organised by encouraging your children to design their own labels to organise their stuff, having a go at making your own stationery for general use or for a special event happening over the summer (such as a birthday party), or maybe even having some fun designing homemade gifts for friends and family.
We’ve got all sorts of different labels but we have a few firm favourites that we think would be the perfect addition or starting point for any family crafts that you’re planning this summer:
Add a brilliant burst of colour to your summer projects with our range of coloured labels; we’ve got pastel shades for a more subtle finish, big and bold fluorescents to rival the summer sun (when it appears!), and shimmering gold and silver options for a delightfully bright finish. All of these labels can be written on or cut to shape and you can also put them through your standard desktop printer at home (please note: while our pastel coloured labels can be printed with laser or inkjet printers, our fluorescents and metallics can only be printed with a laser printer).
The clue is right in the name! These wonderfully decorative labels are made with brown Kraft paper (a common favourite in the world of arts and crafts), which has a ribbed finish to add a brilliantly light touch of pattern and texture. A great addition to any crafting kit, these labels are extremely popular for use as homemade stationery or as part of homemade gifts and cards.
These versatile labels can be used as a crafty addition to any project but are a particularly popular choice for creating homemade window stickers. Your children can create their very own unique designs to stick up in their room (and, if you’re not particularly keen on the idea of PERMANENT stickers, we would recommend taking a look at our Removable Transparent labels, which can be taken down without doing any damage to your windows and walls (and doors and floors) in the process).
You could also try out our Gloss Clear Labels, which can be used to make your own transparent “white boards”; simply stick these labels onto a background surface and your children can write (or draw) on them with white board markers before wiping them clean and starting again!
