Free Miniature Spring Labels and Vintage Art and Budget Friendly Miniature Decorating Ideas

 Hey everyone! One thing I am loving is Vintage spring and Easter art. I love the graphics and use them in my own home. I also love reducing them and using them for dollhouse wall decor amongst other things. 

Today I want to give you the latest page of printables I made. They are also for sale in my Ribbonwood Cottage Etsy shop but I want you to have them for free so you can try them in your little miniature world.

Keep reading;.....

When creating a project (for a magazine - Ribbonwood Cottage 
is in American Miniaturist Magazine this month) 
I love to make a collection.
Whether for a kitchen or bedroom. I also like to create or put together 
printables that I then use for art, decoupage projects, kitchen labels for jars and canisters. 
These labels are from my shabby cottage collection.
Tap on image and when it opens on your device, right click to save to your device. Then later, open it and PRINT.  You can also reduce the image in your printing settings by 30% and make the labels even smaller before printing if you need them smaller.

Use a small brush to add decoupage liquid to the front of jar, and then add label, smooth with fingers to remove any bubbles. Let dry.
You can also cut a small circle of foil, about the size of a nickel  for a small jar. Add a dot of glue to the jar sides or top(I add the cork that comes with the jar) then place foil on top and fold edges over sides. Trim with tiny scissors if there is excess foil hanging down.

If this is for your personal use, fill canisters with cocoa powder for the Hot cocoa mix or brownie mix.  If it is for the canisters that will say flour, sugar, baking powder, etc. then use salt. Salt doesn't deteriorate and is safe to use, and it is great for using in little canisters.

Cut to fit your glass jar, canister, or miniature item.
Use decoupage glue to adhere to the miniature item.

I made several labels over the holidays for winter, the Christmas cabin, Christmas vintage art decor. I turned it into a printable. It is very simple once purchased to click on the link and when it opens you can print it on white copier paper or card stock. Making little labels is actually easier on copier paper. I am giving you the latest printable I made. It is also for sale in my Etsy shop, but I thought it would be fun if you could try it and see what I am talking about! I will share pictures of what I used the labels for.

Click on image, when it opens, right click and click on the option to save. Save to your device. Once saved, open again and print on copy paper. Copy paper is thin and perfect for decoupaging to little jars.

If you would like to order printed copies I have a new listing of 3 pages of printable, labels, spring art, kitchen and canister labels already printed for you to purchase. 
Found HERE

Here are my latest labels that I created. I added some vintage spring art. Vintage bunnies, and vintage scenes are so fun to add to a miniature scene for a seasonal addition.

The following photos are of different miniature scenes where I have added little jars or canisters or items with decoupaged labels or vintage art. 

I hope you enjoy my little gift to you. I would love to see pictures too of your completed items you make with these labels.
