Prettified

The other day I complained to my husband that I was unable to find pretty, inexpensive labels for my craft supply containers.  In a rare moment of (very unexpected) crafting genius he suggested that I buy plain white cheapo labels and use my new craft punch to dress them up.  Brilliant!
 $2 plain jane labels

We whipped out about twenty of these in less than an hour.  (He did the punching for me!)  

 
You could also print your labels before punching instead of hand-writing.
 
Thanks, honey!  You're the best!

What a great idea! Where did you buy your craft punch? I've been pricing them lately ~ was yours around $13?

Thanks everyone! It's a Martha Stewart punch (called lattice something I think?). I bought it at Hobby Lobby and it was right around $14, but I used a 40% off coupon + a gift card I got for my birthday.
