MDS Labels

This year at school a few mums got together and with my help we came up with a few items suitable as gifts for the Father's Day Stall.   Because we were making so many of these little treat holders we needed something quick and simple to decorate them with.  

It was great timing that last weekend we had our MDS (My Digital Studio) workshop at the Brisbane Covention Centre.  I am pretty up on most computer things but doing this course was great to pick up on little things I had no idea about.   After learning these new tricks I was able to come up with some great little labels that I could mass produce in minutes.  It helps if you have a good printer at home.

These are little boxes made using the No. 2 Box die (retired).  You make two of them and stick them back to back to make a double sided box with the handle in the middle.  We put Chocolate Chip Cookies in one side and a Coffee Sachet in the other.  Very simple and cheap for the kids to buy with their pocket money.

We also made these other treat cups.  Disposable coffee mugs filled with marshmallows, Hot Chocolate  and Coffee Sachets, and finished with a Freddo Frog.   I simply designed the labels using MDS, copied multiple times on a page and then printed them out on A4 paper.  Easy Peasy.......
