Food Table Labels
At my son's graduation party, we had a lot of guests attend who had special dietary restrictions. We wanted to make sure the vegtarians and vegans knew which food would be right for them. SO... I used SBC 4.0 to make some food table labels.
I also wanted the labels to be simple and duplicatable and super inexpensive - not to mention that I hoped they would follow my red and gold color scheme.
To create the labels, I used the same storybook project as the Spenser head cupcake toppers. I inserted another blank page. This time, I used a shape from the basic shapes package - it was a rounded corner rectangle. I colored it red, copied and pasted it, dragged the handle bars to change the size of the shape and changed the color.
Inside the double shape I added a text box and filled it with the name of the dish.
I spaced the rectangle shapes so that I could fit several on a page. I added dashed lines to determine where I would cut when I printed the page. I duplicated this page and changed the names of the dishes two more times to make sure I had a label for each dish I was serving.
I printed the page on white card stock and cut the labels apart. I then folded them in half and stood them in front of each dish on the table. My vegan relatives were thankful that they knew exactly what to eat!
