Creating food labels for your cans and containers of homemade food can help you keep your kitchen pantry organised and tidy. Labels can be designed and printed easily from your computer, allowing anyone with a computer to label their homemade food items. Food containers that can benefit from labelling are homemade breads and muffins, dried fruits, dried meats, homemade jams and jellies, cookies, and canned fruits and vegetables. Here is a simple guide to help you create labels for homemade food.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Microsoft Word
- Packing tape
- Fine felt tip markers
Open the Microsoft Word program on your computer. Inside Microsoft Word, open a new document by clicking on the word "File" at the top of the page, and then selecting "New" from the drop-down list.
Select the font you want to use at the top of the screen, near the centre of the page. There will be a drop-down list displaying the fonts you can use for your labels. Next, select the font size, located in a drop-down list next to the font type. Click on your page to begin typing your labels. Skip two lines in between the labels to make separating the labels easier.
Print the label document by clicking on "File," and then selecting "Print Preview" from the drop-down list. A window will appear, allowing you to view the document before you print. Click the box that says "Fit To Screen," then click "OK."
Add decorations to your labels using felt markers with a fine tip. Be careful not to cover up the wording on the labels, keeping the decorations around the perimeter of each one. Designs on your labels, such as swirls and spirals, dots and flowers, will add beauty and flair to your pantry.
Using scissors, carefully cut out the labels. Make sure you do not cut the text. Carefully tape the labels to the containers using clear packing tape, smoothing out any air bubbles in the tape.
