Hello! I am hoping that SOMEONE can help me here because I am at a loss right now and feeling a bit like I’m floundering in deep water. *sob*
I’m working on a tight budget right now and trying to tackle my wedding favors with a DIY approach to save on some costs since our wedding is on the bigger side.
My fiance and I have had a long history (we’ve known each other since we were about 4 years old!) so I thought it would be cute to do little mint tins with a label on them that say "mint to be". I know there are favors out there like this but they are a little on the costlier side so I thought it would be nice to make labels, stick them on to round tins, and fill them up with mint we buy on bulk.
Only problem is, I have NO idea how to make round sticky labels to put on the tins. Here are the tins I’m thinking of using:
The stickers would have to be a little less than 2" in diameter so that they fit on the lid of the tin. Does anyone know how I can make these?? Any help would be much appreciated as my wedding is in 3 weeks and I am feeling desperate now. *huff puff*
Thank you so much for any and all help! You girls are the best~

i can think of two options: 1] buy label paper or some kind of paper that already has a sticky back, and get a large round hole punch from a craft or scrapbooking store. print the cute phrase multiple times on the paper, punch out the circles, and voila!
2] do the same thing, but with regular paper, and send it through a xyron machine.

Paper-Source has these: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/envelopes/circle_stickers_1.html
You can’t run them through the printer, but they seem to be the right size.

" I kinda had the same issue I wanted personalized seals for my pochette invitation pockets and envelopes that went with my monogram theme.
I used Avery Round Matte # 8293 white stickers they are 1 1/2 diameter I bought a pack of 400 from Office Max for 15.00 then printed them on my ink jet at home.
On http://www.avery.com you can also use they templates to create your sticker and add colored borders and things like that. Heres what they ended up looking like.
