Make a professional looking decorative food label to display in front of the food you are serving at a semiprofessional social event. (Plus they are fun and easy to make!)


Approximate Time: 30 minutes per set



  1. Using your computer generate your graphic and the name of the food item. Choose a font size and color and enhance as necessary. You can find some really nice clip art free on the internet. You can also make your graphic in any graphic program.
  2. Keep the whole graphic to 1 and 1/2 by 2 and 1/2 inches. You can use the ruler on any program to size these. Repeat until all items are ready to print.

  4. Print graphic out on white cardstock.
  5. Cut around graphic as you need to so that it fits the card properly.

  7. Using a ruler score off and cut cardstock pieces to 3 and 1/2 inches by 3 and 1/4 inches for each dish.
  8. Fold cardstock piece in half.

  10. Cut small pieces of the tissue box end to about 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch. (Any medium weight cardboard will do as you will not be able to see it.)
  11. Glue three of the quarter inch pieces together with white glue. Stick these pieces into the center of one side of your folded cardstock.
  12. Glue on your graphic that has already been prepped. Allow to dry and display proudly beside your food item.

This is also a great measurement for placecards to use at special event. Decorative Food Labels
