Default Help--Want to make cute round labels I see sold on Etsy

I'm going nuts! It seems so easy but I can't get it. I've seen tons of personalized round stickers being sold on Etsy but I can't figure out how they design them. I want to have text arched inside the sticker on the tip then more text arched upside down on the bottom. I'll put a cute image in the middle and maybe a chevron pattern in the background.

I'd like to design round custom stickers in Publisher 2010 on Avery round labels, but I can't figure out how to open a blank Avery document in Publisher's provided templates. The product Avery numbers provided in the Publisher list don't match the numbers on the Avery packages. Does that make sense? I'm trying to make those cute personailzed stickers for using on envelopes, etc.

I'd love it if someone could tell me step-by-step how they open the labels and start their projects.
Also---I've tried it in reverse. I've downloaded the Avery designpro 5 package in hopes of opening their templates in Word or Publisher. I have downloaded those templated and pulled them up on MS Word. The template I was using had arched print in it that I was supposed to be able to customize, but I couldn't figure out how to edit the text and change it to to what I wanted it to say. When I clicked on it it would let me add text horizontally but I couldn't click on the pre-designed arched text and change it.

I also have Photoshop7 if that program makes it easier?

If you know how to make these stickers, could you please please give step by steo instructions and share what program you're using?

Thanks so much! Heidi
(see pic below for example of what I'd like to make)

Photoshop definitely makes it easier - so does Adobe Illustrator if you have that.

You need to design the graphic part of your circle - colors, images etc. and then use the type on a path tool to make your text go around the edge. Be sure when you start the document, it's the right size for your labels. Then you can save that image and either import it into your template, or set a new template up in Photoshop.

Here are some things that might help.

Default Avery makes software for MS Word!

You can download free software from Avery that has templates for every Avery label imaginable. The SW gives you a Wizard button in Microsoft Word, and it's very easy to use. Here's the link:
