How to: Make Labels for Your Pantry

DIY Pantry Labels

My kitchen cabinets had officially hit rock bottom. It was pretty bad, friends. It was a sea of plastic bulk food baggies, half-full boxes of pasta, opened packages of nuts/rice/flour–it was such a disaster I never really knew what the heck I had. Stuff like this drives me CRAZY (Libra, here). I’ve been on a huge organizational spree everywhere else in my apartment, and the kitchen was long overdue. So I ordered many multi-sized glass storage jars from the Container Store, and this black adhesive vinyl. And then? My trusty Silhouette Cameo did the rest of the work!

It required simply choosing a font and laying it out in the Silhouette studio software. I laid out several words per cut to save time and vinyl. After cutting, I used transfer paper to easily transfer the vinyl onto the glass–it even gets the dotted i’s! (And pssst, each piece of your contact paper can be used several times, keep using each swatch until it completely loses its stickiness.)

If you aren’t familiar with the Silhouette Cameo, head over to YouTube and familiarize yourself with this amazing machine. If you are a maker on any level, I guarantee you will benefit from the endless abilities of this gadget. I’ve had it about a year now and use it at least once a week. It’s opened up a whole new level of DIY for me. I can’t say enough good things.

I absolutely love opening my cabinets and seeing these beautiful, organized babies.

Be sure to hand wash!
