With today’s post, I think you all can officially accuse me of labeling pretty much anything…I can’t help it, I love a great label! Today, I’m not talking about labeling your cabinets or baskets…rather, your leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner! Whether you are packaging up to-go bags for guests or just want a quick and easy way to identify all the Tupperware in your overstuffed fridge, these ready-to-print pages are as fun as they are festive and are the perfect finishing detail to your Thanksgiving feast. Read on to check out my latest printable download, as well as a bunch of fun ways to use these newest pages!

One of my very favorite aspects of throwing a party (for any occasion!) is all the little details. Sure I love to craft up big banners and table centerpieces; but it’s often the smaller, more subtle items that make the biggest impact on your celebration. One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is the leftovers, right?!? So why not make them a little extra special!

Instead of loading Thanksgiving leftovers into plastic bags and containers, consider sending your guests off with stylish “gift boxes” full of their favorites: pie, stuffing, turkey, and more! No matter if you’re boxing up food for friends and neighbors or simply putting out supplies for guests to make their own “doggy bag,” these printable gift tags and stickers make this simple end-of-feast task a bit more thoughtful, special, and fun!

What’s Included?

These Thanksgiving Leftovers Labels features 9 pages of ready-to-print tags and stickers to label Thanksgiving leftovers for your guests. Designed to fit standard AVERY templates and featuring fully editable text fields, these pages make boxing up leftovers fun and fast!

I specifically formatted these labels and stickers to match the same AVERY templates used by other printable kits already in The Toolbox (so you likely already have these papers on hand!)

Paring my PDFs with pre-cut labels makes printing, assembling, AND using these labels a real snap! (Because really…who needs MORE to do before Thanksgiving?!?)

Let me dive into each unique set of labels and show you some fun ways to use them in your Thanksgiving celebration!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Labels

A full six pages in this kit are designed for labeling Turkey Day leftovers…your own or for your guests!

These labels come in both square and circle formats, in 6 different colors, and are formatted to fit 2″ AVERY labels (squares | circles). Labels are organized both in columns of 1 color (so you can print multiples of a single label), as well as all 6 colors on one sheet.

After typing in whatever foods you want on the labels, just run sheets through your printer…

…and stick them right onto your leftover containers. Use the provided “eat by” date spot to write in a quick expiration reminder!

TIP! If you don’t want to use the AVERY labels, you can certainly print these files onto plain sticker paper and then use a scissors or punch to cut out each shape!

If you don’t want to package up foods individually but still love the idea of cute take-home gifts for your guests, consider using these Thanksgiving leftovers stickers instead!

These 2 pages include 12 unique sticker designs, all with a “leftovers” and “thanks for coming” theme.

Both the white-background and colored-background pages can be printed on either square or circle labels. I even found the Kraft labels give a nice rustic complement to the sticker designs (below left)!

Once you run these tags through your printer, all you have to do is pull them apart on the pre-cut lines in order to make 8 adorable gift tags!

TIP! If you don’t want to use the AVERY tags, simply use the included tag template to make your own cut lines. First print the tag designs onto cardstock; next print the tag templates onto the same page; finally, use a scissors or paper trimmer to cut out each tag.

These tags are my my favorite ones! Pair them with some simple twine, string, or ribbon to create really thoughtful food boxes for friends, neighbors, guests, and more!

Printable Thanksgiving Stickers

Last but not least, I’ve included a BONUS set of printable Thanksgiving stickers! These 10 phrases (found on the other labels and stickers) are formatted in both PNG and SVG formats (as well as a single ready-to-print) page, so they can be loaded into any software and used to make adorable coordinating details for your celebration!
