anyone out there great with labels? (i know there’s tons of you, so hopefully you catch this post:-) i would like to make labels for my friends’ wedding favors. i plan to use a fiskar round punch (thanks to weddingbee for the product suggestion!). i want to create the labels in word and plan to put it on sticky paper and attach it to the round cut-outs. does anyone know if i can make round labels in word and if i can have the writing inside to be placed in a circle?
basically, i want to say “thank you” in 3 different languages, so that’s the part i would like to form into a circle. the rest can just be straight on. am i making any sense? if you know how to do this, please let me know. or if you know of any resources, i’d really appreciate it. thanks a bunch bees!!!:-)

Avery has circle labels. I know they have some that are 1 1/2″ as that is the template I used. You can go on to the Avery website and download the one that you need. I just downloaded the template but did not use the labels as I wanted to use a different kind of paper than just white. I then cut it out with my 1 1/2″ circle punch and then used my 2″ circle punch for the backing.
I dont’ know about putting the wording in a circle, sorry.

There is an adobe software that can put words from a straight line into a shape (circle, wave, etc). I used it in college for a couple graphic design classes I took. I think it was illustrator? Sorry if that is not that helpful, try finding the trial version of Adobe Illustrator, I think you can create the text as a vector and then apply a shape for it to follow!
I think you can even do it in Adobe Photoshop, but I have never tried it. I found this tutorial though.

Avery sells circle labels, as Miss Hot Sauce mentions above. I would suggest checking at your local Office Max or Staples to find them. Microsoft Word should offer that circle label as a template option when making the labels.
