A New Label Trick (for me, at least)

I have a bit of  back-of-the-work vanity.  I admit it.  I'm not the quilt/mixed media police.  It simply pleases me to have a finished piece that looks nice and neat on the back.  When possible, I try to put a nice-looking label on my work.  I discovered something that I want to share with you because I think it is fantastic!

I had several framed or mounted pieces that needed labels.  I decided to use some of my mini-MOO business cards.  I also used clear, self-adhesive mailing labels (the same size as Avery 8660tm) which fit the mini-MOO cards perfectly and showed my artwork through the label!  I am so excited about this little discovery.  To fasten to the back of the art I used double-sided tape, which is archival, to adhere the moo card with label to the surface of the work.
Take a peek:
this label....

is on the back of this!

  1. Verrrry clever! Great for the backs of framed or mounted pieces ... I'm gonna steal this idea! Thanks, Leslie!

  2. Steal away! I think this might be a keeper.
