Labelling my spice jars

Sunday, December 15, 2013

I have been having thoughts to label my kitchen stuff for a while, and only recently I managed to get it started. Repeat, started.

Most of the time, decorating and organizing the house is an on-going process. I tend to do it bit by bit and only when I feel like it. That helps to keep the pressure off I guess, although the downside to that is my to-do list will never come to an end.

Anyway, here is another mini project that I did with the spices jar, some neat labels that looks much uniformed to satisfy the OCD in me (erk!).

But seriously, I love the handwriting fonts that I downloaded from the internet quite some time ago, and the label template that I got from an Today's Mama. 

I managed to put on the spices names on the template and printed it out on an ordinary A4 paper.


I used double-sided tape to paste it on the covers and…

Tadaaaa!


As usual, sometimes I suck at thinking more practically, so I had some trouble when the label keeps peeling up.

And then I realized that I have to keep it off the water on my hands, especially when I am cooking. So I got myself a Mod Podge from Art Friend, The Curve and sealed it off.

Here is the look of a Mod Podge if you have not heard about it – it’s kind of like a sealant/finisher/adhesive and it comes in a variety of finishes (matte/gloss/etc…you can google it to find out more).


Oh and that was a picture from another mini project too (covering up my plain magnetic board with a fancy cloth to perk it up..i’ll post about it next time).

I am only done with spices jars though, I also have plans to label some pantry items later. That's why I said it just got started heheh.

So there, one mini project down, lots more to go!
