Spicing up my kitchen jars with vinyl word art…

March 24, 2011
I’m taking a quick break from reading a juicy love story (The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels), to post a quick “HELLO” to my darling readers & share another Silhouette creation of mine. By the way, you really should pick this book up. Its a fanta-bulous read!

I used the “Bodoni” font for these jars.

Do you have any favorite fonts that you like to use?
 I LOVE finding new fonts.

    Mine are very similar to yours! It’s the one project I’ve done with my Silhouette. 😉 I also have a LARGE cereal jar–LOVE it.

    So simple but make a big difference!

  3. DARLING!!! That Silhouette could be dangerous! I’d label the whole house!

  4. I love your jars and labels. do you have any tips for keeping the sugar moist, mine just becomes rock hard.

  5. Hi
    Those jars look so good!! Makes them look very classy!! I mentioned you on my blog, so check it out and Thanks for the motivation you have given me!!

    Chandeen, I don’t have a problem with my sugar getting hard… It may be the particular jar you are using. But mine doesnt seal either. Hmm…


  7. CannyCole says:

    Looove using different fonts. I constantly download fonts from dafont.com!!! I hope i win the silhouette!! 😉

    Chandeen, I’ve never personally tried this…but i’ve heard about it. I think it’s mostly for brown sugar, since it gets really hard/sticky in a short amount of time…and trust me, i’ve had to throw lots of sugar out in my days…but i would also try it for regular white sugar.

    Let me know if it works for you!


  9. Great idea. Looks sharp!

    Can I ask where you found jars that seal?

    Every glass jar I have found has no rubber seal inside the lid. The lid just sets on top.

    I like to cook/bake but even so would not feel that I would use my staples before air/moisture compromised them in those traditional no-seal glass jars.

    Did you find seal jars or do you use plain glass-to-glass jars and everything’s fine and I’m worrying about stale staples for no darned good reason?


  10. Those look great!

    I like the Algerian font I used for this laundry sign:


  11. These are perfect, and would enhance my kitchen as well. So many good ideas!!!

  12. Does anyone know if there is a Yahoo or other group where people share their ideas and specific designs for the machine? …might be really useful.

  13. Toni says:

    Canny, Thanks for sharing! Great idea.

    Kymberly, I just use “seal-less” jars. I go through mine pretty fast so I dont worry too much about stale flour, etc… I guess if they are stale, nobody’s complaining… yet. 😉

    Steph, Visited your link and LOVE it! tfs. 🙂


  14. PinkGranny says:

    Those labels are terrific. I just got a jar for 5 pound bags of whole wheat flour and would love to label them like this!

    Thanks for sharing the tip on a good read, I will look for the book.

  15. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the PW and MM too!! LOL I just had a breakup with my boyfriend, and this book really gave me hope that there are real gentlemen out there.

  16. Toni says:

    Haley… Thats God working in your life AND some Pioneer Woman Whit!!! 🙂

  17. Robyn :) says:

    Those look really nice. I am reading that book right now, too 🙂

  18. Erin says:

    Pioneer Woman has quite a story! Is this the one that is at her blog as well?

  19. Lesli says:

    I love what you made for your jars!

    I’m adding this book to my list of 10 books for April! I can’t wait to read it. I’ll link you when I write the review! Thanks for the recommendation:) I saw this book in Target the other day but didnt have time to pick it up and read the cover, so you made up for that!

    PS – I LOOOOOVE the Shaklee products so far!! My stovetop looks brand new after using the scour off, and we love using the Basic H in our new Eco Friendly Rubbermaid mop on the floors (no more spending tons of $ each month on replacing swiffer bottles and wipes, and its better for the earth too).


  21. Toni says:

    Im so happy you are loving your Shaklee! Isnt the mop genious… and with Basic H just perfect!!

    My absolutely favorite font is called Peach Sundress. I have a tattoo on my foot in that font and it is always the one I try out first when I’m making things 🙂
