How to lower or move this rotated text?

How do I fix this formatting issue? The word "Sunflower" is too close to the top line, and I'd like to move it down closer to the bottom line, but I can't figure out how to do it and don't know what search terms to try to find out.

How do I format labels like this?

I can't figure it out past what's described about sizing. I can't get the rotated text (as seen at the top of the labels) to move, it stays too high against the top lines so it gets cut off, and I can't insert pictures without completely losing the rotated text entirely.

This is what I'm trying to format. Similar to this tutorial, but it doesn't include how all of it.

Here is your optimized linked attachment image (a cropped, 256 color PNG type file) - it is smaller than 100 KiB:

And please upload a real, ODF type sample file here.

I don't have one, or I could just edit it. I'm trying to create one with that formatting shown.

If you are working on an image, then you need to use a specialised Image editor, and cut the word in question, pasting it further down in the position you require. You may have to also insert a small patch of background to fill any gap. I cannot help with advice on selection of the appropriate image editor for a Mac.
