    So I am on my second to last DIY and all my stuff is off to Mexico next Wednesday...YEAH! I am stuck. I have designed my First Aid Kit lables and have them on a 3x3.5 template to fit the little box on the front of the box. Whay paper did you guys use and how did you do the corners. The box indentation for the sticker ont he front has slightly rounded corners. Did you leave them square or did you round them. Is there an easy way to do this? I did it square and it looked funny. Then I rounded them with siscors, but it still doesn't look right...please help!

    Thanks

        I just rounded the corners. I took a peice of paper and traced the indention of the circled part then I cut it out in the right size. Then I used it to put over the labels and cut them out.

          I used traslucent paper (peel and stick) and kept the corners squared - when I stuck it on the white First Aid Kits it was rarely visible..

            I used a corner rounder/cutter from Michaels.. which I had used for my boarding pass invites anyways. I used labels that were already sticky so I didn't have to try and glue them on..

              Thanks Ladies! I was going to see if there was such a thing as rounding corners since I learned after the fact that ther were circle cutters (painful lesson).

              I can't PM or email the template as it is huge. I will take a pic (try) tomorrow and post it and if you still want it, I will send it it to you via email if you PM me with your email address which has the size right and the first box filled in with what I chose to do. You will have to cut and paste it into the other boxes on the Word Template (and then center them). Otherwise it is way too big to put it on this site.

              Thanks!

                Here is a Pic of my First Aid Kit (My Monogram has a heart and our colors are lime blue so that is why we designed it this way)
                You can see my issues with corners. Anyone know how to save a word doc that is too big as something else so I can attach it?

                  I think it looks great the way it is! I don't think anyone will notice the corners. Honestly, it looks awesome!

                    I agree that no one will notice the corners. I wouldn't worry about it

                      Oh it looks amazing!! I don't think the corners are something to worry about at all. If you do figure out how to attach the template that would be awesome!
