Free Printable Labels To Organize Your Stuff

On this Free Printables to Organize Your Stuff page are all the free printable labels for Home Organizing and more that I have shared and posted here on In My Own Style. 

Working With Printable Labels

All the labels shown below are sized to print out on 8-1/2″ x 11″ size paper using a standard home printer. If you would like to print them smaller or larger, use your printer’s interface to print to a specific size.

On some printers you may not have a lot of choices. You can always simply change the Print %. Choose a number larger than 100%. For smaller labels, choose a setting number under 100%.

Below the following labels is a guide on how to print, cut and attach the labels.

How to Cut Printable Labels for Organizing Your Stuff

How to cut out free printable labels
  • I usually use white printer paper or card stock to print the labels and then cut them with a small paper cutter that I bought at the craft store.

How to Laminate Printable Labels for Organizing Your Stuff

Self seal laminating sheets
  • I make all my labels wipeable so that I can change the names if the contents in the box or basket changes. To do this, I use self-sealing clear laminating sheets over paper labels. I buy the self-sealing sheets at Walmart or Staples.
  • You can add the lamination before or after cutting out the labels depending on the look you want.
  • Follow the directions on the self-sealing laminating sheet package.

There are two ways to use self-seal laminating sheets when making labels:

How to seal a label with a self sealing laminating sheet

1. Cut out the labels. Lay the label face down on the shiny non-sticky side of the laminating sheet, place the sticky side over the back of the label. When cutting you will need to leave about 1/8″ – 1/4″ of lamination all around the label so the lamination can seal.  This is the way I make most of my labels.


2. Lay a cut out label or a sheet of labels face down on the sticky side of the laminating sheet and then cut out the label right along the shape of the label. This leaves the back with no lamination, but you don’t see it. There will be no lamination border around the labels this way, but the fronts will be shiny and protected.

How to Attach Printable Labels for Organizing Your Stuff

  1. Using a hole punch, punch a hole on both ends of your label.
  2. Push a closed brass fastener into each hole.

To Attach Labels on Boxes:  Use an awl to make two holes on the center of the front of the box. These holes should be the same distance as the holes punched into the label.  Use brass fasteners to attach the label to the box.

How to Add Words To the the Free Printable Labels

Using Photoshop or Photo-Editing App

Once I have saved the .pdf file to my computer. I open Photoshop and upload the file to add the wording to each label. I use various free fonts that I have on my computer.

Using Microsoft Word or Word Processing Programs

If you have Microsoft Word – You can choose any pretty font and add to your computer. Type the words for the label into a Word document in the font size needed to fit on the label.  Print this out. Tape it to a window and center and hold your label over the word and trace the word onto your label.  EZ peasy. :-)

Simply Write the Words on the Labels

If you don’t have access to photo editing apps or a word processing program, you can simply use a black marker to write the word you want on each label.

  1. Hi – I downloaded the lable I wanted to use, but it is in PDF format. I use word. Do you have your beautiful labels in other formats? Thanks!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Tammy – I don’t use Word anymore on my Mac. I use Pages. Have you tried to convert a PDF to Word? To do so, you can simply right-click the file and choose Open with Word.

      You can also open a PDF in Google Docs and download it as a Word file.

      If either of these don’t work for you let me know.

  2. Thank you so much. I’m on a “label everything” binge. This really helps. So nice of you to share the labels & your knowledge.

  3. Sue Cottler says:


    What a gift you’ve given to all of us!! Bless your heart for being so generous with your time your effort and your talent.
    I am so excited that I found you and you have inspired me so much. I can’t wait to get started on organizing so many things. However, I know I need to just take it one day at a time.

    I need a little help. I love all of the printable labels however, I am having trouble being able to use my own words in the labels. Can you assist me?
    I have a Mac, and I actually could not find the PDF to actually add my own words. Could you give me a clue? If I missed it, my apologies in advance.

    Forever grateful.

      Hi Sue – The way I make my printed labels is to upload the .pdf into photo editing software or app. Once uploaded, I add the words over each label, save it and print. I use Photoshop Elements, but you may be able to do it on any photo editing program like Canva. Are you familiar with it?

  4. Carol Carver says:

    Thank you, I’m labelling everything!

  7. When I tried to download the file for the large labels, it comes up as a duplicate of the file box labels. Is it still possible to get the large labels file? I really like that you have designed the same style in 3 different sizes! I look forward to using them. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Thank you so much! I.m using them a lot in my house. :)

    Thank you for sharing this!

  12. Thank you so much for these fabulous printable label designs! I used the Large Decorative Labels to make signs for my daughter’s high school graduation party. We are on a tight budget, so I printed signs for desserts, class rings (ring pops) and other items using the template and adobe photoshop. I printed them on construction paper that I had with my kids’ art supplies! So easy. Thank you again!

  13. Thank you so much for the label printables! These are exactly what I was looking for. You even have small, medium and large. So wonderful of you to make these and share them.

  14. Thank you so much for your lovely labels. I downloaded them so I can finally be organized in my home. They were exactly what I was looking for. I searched all over Pinterest but yours were the perfect ones. Your organizational skills taught me to finally put my home into the right look. I had ideas but I never knew how to do it right. Now I will have an organized and functional home. And my husband and I can live in our tiny apartment for a few more years and save for our home. THANK YOU AGAIN AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!!

  15. We’re having a long heat wave so I’ve been having fun looking at your blog which may prove to be dangerous…I decided to paint my sofa. It’s so comfortable but so outdated. Thank you for all your great ideas!

  16. Awesome. Just love the style of these. Thank you so much.

  17. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!! you have inspired me to go to the next level. I just THOUGHT I was organized.. Can’t wait to print these out and make it pretty!!!! you are AMAZING!
