This is probably the quickest project I have done lately. For Christmas the husband bought me a Cricut. Until today I have not used it. It has sat on my desk collecting dust. What a waste. I was out yesterday and found these glass jars 50%. I couldn’t pass that up. I picked up some vinyl in silver. And knew that it was time to update from the plastic containers that hold everything hidden in the cabinet. I did debate whether to paint the labels on or not. I decided that if I want to change containers it would be easier with the vinyl (which I now have 10 feet of).
So how long did it take me to complete this project? Less than 30 minutes. I spent longer trying every font in the Cricut craft room before deciding to purchase a cartridge than it took me to put the letters on the jars.
How did I do it? It was really difficult. I hope you can keep up. I typed my words in the craft room with text box selected, cut with the Cricut, and then put them on the jars, one letter at a time. I even eyeballed it so they may not be perfectly straight but I didn’t want to dig for a ruler. And the font is fun enough that it is hard to notice (or my eyeballing method is really accurate).
I did have pictures of every step along the way but managed to delete them before saving them to my computer. Here are pictures of the finished jars.
I did four jars: sugar, flour, coffee, and pancake mix. I wish that I would have picked up some more jars.
