Personalized address labels are handy items to have on hand. Particularly if you ship your own packages and other mailing sizes. For example, people mail large quantities of invitations and holiday cards.
But personalized address labels can also be used for other purposes. And if you get creative, you can repurpose those labels for many other practical uses. Of course, some of the uses require that the back of the label is not the sticky type.
With this in mind, here are a few ways to use personalized address labels other than on an envelope.

Bookworms will truly appreciate this use of address labels. Ideally, put the label inside the cover of your book. Make sure though that it’s actually on the cover part that’s attached to the book.
