    I have taken those address stickers and ran over the address with white-out tape and then use them for whatever.

    Me too! They're great for putting inside your books for a nameplate also.

    Is there a way to print off this tutorial without all the extra info down the side? I'm still not as comfortable on the computer as with my sewing machine!

    I finally started throwing them away last year, since I knew I couldn't live long enough to use all of them! lol Thanks for the tip--now I have a reason to save them again.

    Yes, highlight the part you want and go to the top left corner under file and click print. A box will come up where you will be able to select the word "selection". Do that and then click ok.

    Thanks, it's a little different from the one I made, mine was made with 4" squares for all the squares, this was has different size squares for the different colors. Basically the same tho.

    My thanks also...

    Anyone other than me ever wonder why organizations keep sending out address labels when we can't afford the price of postage anymore....plus I rarely use snail mail thanks to the Internet? :-P

    pre-printed labels are great for door prize forms at quilt shows. So fast, gives you more time to see the quilts. :D

    I also use them on my dishes/pots/flatware when I take food to church or someone's house....put one on each piece, i.e. lid and pot or lid and casserole dish.
