Book Box Label Update and Sale!

I feel like I have been working on this forever!!! I thought this would be a quick update to my book box labels, but it turned into a two week project! It actually turned into one of those where I swore my computer was growing horns and an evil tail! I got to the point I didn't want to go near it:) 

I was asked to create a few more genres for the file, and I was happy to do so! That was a breeze, and I'm really happy with the additions. I added 7 more genres: World History, Social Studies (2 different labels), Traditional Literature, Animals, Transportation, Scary Stories, and Good Character. So if you have already bought the book box labels, make sure you download the updated file! 

THEN came the idea to create label stickers for the books. This is so I can stick a matching label onto every book I have so the kids know what box to put the book in. I had been wanting to do it for a long time, and I had been approached about it several I decided to dive in! It was soooo tedious, and took me forever to get them done! I think I will have to buy glasses for myself with all the squinting and maneuvering I had to do with those little boxes! However, they turned out great, and I am SO glad to have them done:) 

I didn't make these stickers specific to picture/chapter books because the file would have been outrageously huge! SO I'm working on adding different products that feature stickers with picture books, and stickers with chapter books. For now, if you are interested in labels with just the genre on them, you can check them out here.

Here are my Book Box Labels in use:

Here is what the sticker looks like on the book that belongs in Animal Characters. I chose to put it at the upper left hand corner because I like the idea of it being on the front, and it is away from where kids will have their hands while turning the pages:) 

Here is a sample of one of the labels printed out

The labels need to be printed on 1" x 2 5/8" address labels. Here is a picture of what I used:

SO in honor of all this hard work, I'm going to put these two items on sale 15% off for the next 2 days ONLY(Friday and Saturday)! Here are the links to take you there:
