A Bit of Useful Knowledge and FREE owl labels

So today I crossed another Pinterest curiosity project off the list. I discovered PowerPoint for creating backgrounds and labels and man is it nice to finally know how all this cute stuff is made. I discovered some very useful websites that offer free downloads for personal use.

www.fontspace.com is a wonderful site for free fonts. They even have some cool frame fonts. Some other good font sites are www.1001freefonts.com and www.dafont.com

I also found a site for cute backgrounds for websites and blogs, but you could save the JPEGs/GIFs and use them in your PowerPoint displays as well. The site is http://www.backgroundlabs.com/polka-dot-backgrounds/ and it is amazing. I found lots of cute free images.

Anyhoo, I used one of the cute backgrounds I found on the Background Labs site and some free frames I found on the blog Haphazard Happenstances, and came up with these adorable polka dot owl labels. I plan on using them in my classroom to label my art stuff. I'll just print and cut them and adhere them with clear contact paper. Easy enough! Enjoy the freebie!!

Here is what the labels look like.
