First you will need to select from the FREE printable files below and print them onto your label sheets.  There is one file for each of the sizes listed above, if you don’t want to order multiple label sizes, try using the brown kraft full sheet label and cut the designs out with scissors or a hole punch.  All of the vintage graphics were designed by the one of the most well known designers online, Karen Watson from the  Graphics Fairy.
