Dymo Junior Label Maker

Do you know the saying that when you have hammer, everything seems like a nail? Well, that's kinda what happened to me ;P I saw cute labels on the Kesällä Kerran blog and just had to have similar ones. So off to eBay I went and got me a Dymo Junior Label Maker and some black labelling tape with white letters.

Dymo Junior Label Maker. There's an arrow (obscured by mu thumb) that tells you
what letter you have selected, then you just press the long part and the letter is
imprinted on the label tape and it automatically moves forward to accept another letter.
You just roll the thing with letters to choose the one you want.
Suddenly there were many things that needed labelling once it arrived ;P I've now personalized my contact lens box, most of my craft stuff boxes and I'm still looking for more to label! I also ordered another roll of labelling tape because I would be devastated if it ran out in the middle of something.

This is my nail polish box. I don't have that many polishes, but I use each
and every one!

It's about 100% easier to distinguish the chickpea flour from the soy flour now!

This was the original idea I saw and fell in love with. Spice jars from Ikea with labels.
I even used some on a card I made! Very versatile and looks really nice. The labels also seems to stick well, so I'm assuming they will last nicely. On paper they are impossible to remove, but I'm sure the glass surfaces will be much easier if I ever need to change the labels.

    1. What a coincidence! I like to keep things in order, so it's surprising I haven't gotten one of these things earlier ;P

  6. I went with masking tape and a sharpie to accomplish the same goal... my kitchen looks 100% bat-shit insane now, but even a stranger can find the ramekins or the toothpicks.

    1. I had a few printed labels before, but the ink smudged if they got any water on them. Finding stuff fast is essential!

  7. Yes!! A modern REAL Dymo! Iv'e been looking for one like this. I think the new expensive digital ones are so expensive and the labels are boring! Now I know they exist! :)

    1. This one is really handy, easy to use and not too many moving parts ;) It wasn't too expensive either, I got mine from the UK and it was under ten pounds with shipping, if I remember correctly.

  8. I was just thinking the other week how I want one of these. I want to write random things and stick them places. Now I know what I'm getting with my next pay :)

  9. Ages and ages ago I had a Dymo label maker, but I have no idea what happened to it. If I ever find it again, I'll get more tape for it and label my kitchen jars. I've been trying to come up with a good labelling solution for those in ages and utterly forgotten about the Dymo label maker! My other half wants the kitchen things to be red, so I'll probably use red tape.
