Pantry Canister Labels

Hi friends!  Just checking in to share with you a quick organization tip that goes great with this week’s spring cleaning pantry project.

Being the baker that I am, I have tons of different types of flours and sugars laying around.  A couple of years ago, I started the process of putting them all into their own glass canisters with a tight fitting lid.  I love the tall square jars that I found online at Bed, Bath & Beyond because they look super sleek and don’t take up as much space as round jars.  I used my label maker to slap on a quick label so I would know what was in each jar, but I knew this solution was only temporary until I found something prettier.  While on Pinterest one day, I came across these labels:

I absolutely LOVE them!  However, when I finally sat down to see what all this project entailed, I realized that I didn’t have any of the supplies needed and didn’t have the time to go out and search for them somewhere.  :(

So, I came up with plan B.  I decided that I would just use my Silhouette machine to cut out the words in a pretty font on colored vinyl to stick onto the fronts of the jars.  If you aren’t familiar with the Silhouette machine, it’s kind of like a Cricut.  You can learn more about it here.  I have the Silhouette Cameo… I got it for my birthday last year.  I love it and it’s perfect for all kinds of crafting!

Here is the before and after pictures of my baking canister jars:

I absolutely LOVE the way they turned out!  The pretty font {Gabriola} and the pink vinyl add that girly touch that I just adore.  Here is how they looked all stacked and put away into our neatly organized pantry:

If you don’t own a Silhouette or Cricut, don’t worry!  I’ve got two alternative options for you.  :)  You can use a paper punch in a pretty shape {like a flower or scalloped edge circle} to hole punch into the colored vinyl.  Use a sharpie to write on the vinyl.  Then, peel and stick it onto the jar.  Or you can buy pre-made chalkboard stickers to apply to the outside of your jars.  Use chalk to write on them and viola!

  1. […] went the extra mile and made a vinyl label with my Silhouette machine {just like I did in my post Pantry Canister Labels}.  Again, if you don’t own a Silhouette or Cricut, you could buy pre-made chalkboard […]
