Friday Freebie: Mouse Ears & Pressed Pennies

I mentioned in my Disney Packed Fun for Less post that I would have a free printable to share at the end of the month. I had fun creating simple labels to dress up mini M&M’s tubes complete with a few hidden Mickeys. The “chocolate mouse ears” tubes did have mini M&M’s in them (which was a hit as a treat but a miss as I didn’t think about the old “melt in your hand thing” – totally will in hot FL weather so have those handwipes ready!).

The other plastic tube held a stack of coins (2 quarters & a penny, repeat) so we were ready for the pressed penny machines. Our son is really into those right now and they make a fun, inexpensive souvenir.
Mini M&M's Tube Free PrintableThe labels fit 6 to a sheet on Avery Shipping Labels 8164 or similar. Peel off the original label on the tube. Then print, peel & stick the new ones. Simple as that.

    We did the M&M tube thing for our trip and it was great. The only thing we came across were the special ones or the pressed quarters cost more, so we had to go digging around in the tubes to get the right change. Thanks for the template, it looks great!

      The quarters are definitely more ($1.50, I think). I've made them on previous trips but we managed to 'encourage' Dylan to head for the penny machines instead. ;) The tubes make it so much easier to tote the loose coins & keep them accessible for whenever you see a machine. Hope you enjoy the labels!

    Hi! Is there any way I can download these awesome labels? I tried logging into google docs, but it says I don't have permission to access the files. Thanks so much!

      Oops! I left the settings to private by accident. It's corrected now and they should open fine without needing to log in. Thanks for letting me know!
