In our last blog, we gave you tips for how to creatively use the extra It’s Mine Labels stick-on labels that you have lying around your home. Here are a few more tips to add to that list.
If your child’s school or another charitable organization organizes a raffle that requires you to put your information onto each raffle ticket, you can easily do so by attaching an extra stick-on label. This way you don’t have to try to find a pen or worry about watching your kids while entering your information.
If you order blank labels, you can use them for almost anything by quickly penning in the information you need on them, such as names of guests at a party you are hosting or your child’s name to label their items when they go to camp.
Label your CD’s and other discs by simply adding the information under what is on the label, or crossing out the information if it is no longer relevant and writing the new information over it.
You’ve labeled your elderly loved one’s pill boxes, your scrapbooking tubs and your child’s Sippy cups, so now what can you do with the leftover stick on labels you have? Here are a few creative ideas to use up all of your It’s Mine Labels stick-on labels.
Use them as “this book belongs to” labels. This way, when your friend borrows your book or children accidentally drop their own book in the return slot at the library, you will easily get it back.
Stick on labels can be used as personalized gift tags. Instead of attaching a to/from label or a small card, use your stick on labels to convey that information.
With spring here, many families are heading to picnics and potlucks. To make sure you get your dishes back, attach a stick on label to the dishes you bring with you. The labels can be removed later relatively easily, but will serve their purpose beautifully for the time being.
Many people with sensitive skin find that traditional labels, including clothing tags, sew-on labels and even iron on labels irritate their skin and can become painful after a period of time. Iron on ink transfers and letters are the perfect alternative for those with very sensitive skin, as they don’t add any additional fabric or stitching that can rub against the skin and cause irritation.
Both the iron-on Letter Transfers and Ink Transfers bond permanently with the fabric, resulting in a permanent, non-itchy label. The Letter Transfers are available in both black and white for light and dark colored clothing, and the Ink Transfers are available in blue and pink and are designed to be used on light-colored clothing only.
These labels are particularly useful for small children or elderly people, who tend to experience skin sensitivity more often. It’s Mine Labels products are designed to last – the labels will not wash off nor fade over time.
As your loved ones get older, they can start to become forgetful. Whether they live in an assisted living home or simply like to visit the park, they may start to find that they are forgetting their things or getting them mixed up with their friends’ belongings. Labels from It’s Mine Labels can greatly help diminish the confusion, grief and loss that comes with growing older and becoming more forgetful. Here are three essential labels for seniors.
Sew-on woven labels can have block lettering that is easy to read, and allows you to easily identify valuable clothing without adding a bulky or uncomfortable tag. Sew-on clothing labels can also be removed if necessary.
Iron-On satin labels are extra smooth and soft, and are perfect for those with sensitive skin. A range of lettering styles, colors and icons is available, and they are very easy to attach to clothing and linens.
Stick-on Standard labels are perfect for most other hard possessions, including pill bottles, toothbrushes, knitting supplies and more. The labels are simple with one or two lines of text, and will not wash off or deteriorate when exposed to heat or moisture.
Shoe racks may be perfect for you and your older children, but they may not be the best idea for your younger child’s closet. Younger children tend to climb on anything above the ground, which makes shoe racks the perfect recipe for disaster. One easy, colorful way to make sure your child’s closet is safe and organized is with It’s Mine Labels nylon drawstring shoe bags.
The nylon shoe bags are available in eight different colors, including red, pink, blue, green, white and black, and are ideal for organizing shoes. They are also perfect for other uses, including gym bags, travel, picnics, daycare and more, and since the bags are machine washable as well, they can be used for outdoor activities without too much concern for keeping them clean.
The bags measure six and a half inches by twelve inches, and cost $16.50. They come with a shoe logo and one line of text, which allows you to customize your bags for each member of your family.
