Help I need to make a label for my egg boxes!

Found 23rd Apr 2010
Got all the chickens laying and too many eggs! Going to pass some on to friends but thought I'd like to make the boxes look better by doing our own labels.
Problem being I've no idea where to start, my computer skills are limited to basic word processing and surfing the net.
Anyone willing to explain how?

Buy A4 sheets of sticky labels, & use MS Word to design a suitable label.

You may need to invest in a Dymo label printer (or something similar). The software that comes with it is fairly simple to use.

or just staple the paper to the egg box!

Or... buy a Black & Red marker pen :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone,
They are very easy my husband built ours a house and a big run with branches etc in then when we're home they have run of garden. Most of the poo is at night in there house and it's just like cleaning a big rabbit hutch! and other bits I just hose off lawn, they eat pellets from pet shop plus treats like peas,sweetcorn, leftovers!
