Here's a picture of my newest project. It's labels for Hershey's® Kisses®. They're 3/4" round labels and the template was a 'bear' to set up!

Minnie, I also got the forbidden notice here. Go to the Graphics and Scanning forum and check out Steve's post there. It is worth the look. Super idea!

Thanks all! And Thank you Minnie for the new link. I linked to Webshots but I guess something went wrong.
Take care,

Hi all! Thank you all for the nice words. But I've got to fess up. I got the idea from one of the many wrapper sites that I've been to. They had no plans or templates and only one small picture. So I decided to try and make them myself. It took a good while but I finally won out.

Diane: The labels are from Avery and the stock # is 05408.
They stick pretty good even though they're listed as 'Removable'. (can't beat them Jersey girls!)

Lia: Ya got to come clean Lady! It's the chocolate, isn't it? :o)
Take care,
Steve

OK Steve, I hate to break it to ya, but it's just because they're chocolate. Your print job looks terrible. I think you should just start over and send the mess-ups to me. Bwa-ha-hahaha!
;-)
Hey, BTW, do you know they're talking about your work over on the voy. com Crafts Sayings forum? You're famous!

Thanks for a wonderful project and for sharing with us! We've got a wedding coming up this Oct and my daughter is making me crazy with what she wants for the wedding favors.

This by far is the cutest, smallest and most likely not to be tossed (or eaten) away favor I have seen yet. This could even be put in a miniature curio shelf. I think she will love it!

Thanks again, Carmen

Okay, Steve!

You've got me thinking now...... What program did you use to make the template?

I can only think of about 1000 things that I could use these for!!!

Hi Sneekersmom.
I used the label 'section' in Print Shop to set up the template for the stickers. I'm guessing that any program you have that deals with labels, especially Avery labels, would work as well.
If you're interested, email me directly (members page) and I'll send you all the instructions.
Take care,
Steve C

I didn't have the "dot" labels in my version of PrintShop (version 6), so I'm gonna try to do the next best thing. I did manage to get a template made in my PrintShop (3/4" circle) and I'm gonna do the next best thing. Print them out of Full label sheets and then use a 3/4" paper punch to punch them out.

Can't remember where I saw it...but they were also using these on the Starlight Mints!!

What a great memory game this would make - you just eat the pairs you find! Great idea, thanks for sharing.

Steve, did you "hole-punch" yours? I want to make them but on 3/4" labels that I can just peel off....

Marcia, I e-mailed you directly. But to answer your question, no, I bought the stickers already made.

Steve, I wanted to thank you for this great idea. We went to a friend's 50th b'day party this weekend and I adapted your idea for our gift. They were a real hit, although he wouldn't let anyone have any cause he's running for political office and he wants to use them for his campaign - I told him I could make up some new ones that said "Vote For" instead of happy birtday but he didn't care. BTW I used the punch method and it worked great. The hardest part of the whole project was making a box that showed them all face up when it was opened! (My DH thought it would be tacky to ask for the box back to reuse it again) I'd post a pic but I forgot to take one! Just wanted to say thanks again.

Hi All,
I'd just like to let you all know that I don't make this type of label anymore because the set up was a lot of trouble.
Sorry,

That's too bad, Steve. I remember seeing them and they were really nice. I wish Avery, or one of the other companies, made stickers the correct size for the kisses.
