So, I was making some cookies recently and I opened up my "baking cabinet" (I say that all fancy-like but really it's just my lazy susan corner cabinet) and I wanted to cry. Not tears of joy, mind you. Tears of "how does one live like this?" It was a dis. as. ter. Certifiable. Three or four half used bags of flour and sugar all rolled down at the top and piled on top of each other. Spilled chocolate chips every where coming from opened and half empty bags. A sprinkling of salt or sugar (hard to tell which without a taste test and no, I wasn't going to taste it) all over one of the shelves. Gross.
I stopped right there and just started pulling everything out. I should have gotten a before picture but this was one of those projects you're halfway into before you even realize what you're doing. So I didn't. Sorry.
Now, because I don't keep my canisters on my counter, I didn't feel the need to spend a small fortune on nice glass ones with the cute silver tops. BUT I did want them to be cute. Because cute makes me happy and happy is the goal.
I went to WalCrap and picked up two sets of these for about $6 each.
I then opened up the design studio for the Silhouette and got to work. I chose a shape from the "artisan shapes set" as my main label.
Now, the part I wanted to share is that the original shape did not have the cute little circles at the top and bottom. It was just solid. It seemed a little plain to me so I just added a period and increased its size until I got the look I was going for. I'm always amazed at how the pre-made shapes can be manipulated and customized to what you want. You don't have to settle, you guys! :)
So, I loaded in the vinyl and hit "CUT."
My happiness went up considerably as I set these all up for this photo, by the way.
They now look adorable all snug in their cupboard.
I know not many people will ever even see these in here, but I will.... all the time. And isn't that what matters?
These canister labels are for sale in my Etsy shop! Totally customizable to what you need. See listing here!
