What happened to masking tape?
Remember good o’masking tape? My grandmother used it to label everything from canning jars to the boxes under her bed.
When making my shopping list last week I added masking tape. I haven’t used it in years. Splurging and bought two rolls!
They are in my kitchen junk drawer…
and they are still there…
But I did make some farmhouse style labels to print. 167 labels!

I used graphics and fonts from Creative Market to make the labels. I use Creative Market to help make most of the printables created for you.
Steps for printing and cutting
You can print the label sheet of your choice. I printed the labels on tan colored cardstock. Printing only using black ink. Except for the two sheets of red grain sack labels. 🙂 This saves money on ink.
You could print on white too. The “age and grunge” of the vintage style labels was added to the labels.
Then I cut out some labels using scissors or….
a paper trimmer or….
Or used a guillotine type paper cutter. This one I found at a local thrift store. You can browse for guillotine paper cutters on Amazon here.
Notice some labels are “chalkboard” They will print normally. Then use a piece of chalk or chalk pen for writing. Note: the image used for the chalkboard labels is my mom’s old chalkboard made when she was 7 years old.
For the other labels, you can use a regular black marker or your favorite color. The marker I love is a zig double tip calligraphy marker. They last great and make even my handwriting look pretty.
Some of the labels are hanging and use a single hole punch and twine to hang. I used clear shipping tape, not the masking tape??? to apply labels. Or use a white glue or Mod Podge to apply to the surface.
