HYBRID | HOMEMADE KITCHEN LABELS

A couple of months ago I decided to reduce my waste, particularly packagings. So I bought a maximum of products in a grocery store where they sell loose oils, flours, sugar, spices, coco nut, sweets etcetera.
Now I use glass jars to store them in my kitchen.

When I saw Mirjam's July BYOC Bakers Gonna Bake products I got a idea: create labels to decorate my jars and jam pots.

Let me show you how I made these.

I made the labels in Photoshop using Bakers Gonna Bake Elements and Labels & Tags by Pink Reptile Designs.


I not only printed the label clusters but also one main item. I need these to be able to add a bit of depth to my labels.


After printing every item needs to be cut.




Adding a little strip of 3D tape at the back of the main item and sticking that to the label creates that bit of depth I was looking for.



The finished labels are glued to the jars.




I wrote the names of the products in the jar on the labels. This is what my jars looked like before I made the embellished lables.


And this is what they look like now! It's better isn't it?


These labels are perfect for all kitchen pots and jars. Here I used them on a pot of apricot jam and on a pot of grated coconut:



Now it's time to cook! ;)


As always I hope you enjoyed my post and if I inspired you in any way, shape or form then by all means make a photo of your project and upload it to your gallery so you can leave a link in the comment section below! I'd love to see what you made!

SAN'S FAV SUMMER FONTS



Hello my fellow font lovers! I am here with a great set of new favorite fonts for the summer!

I think by now for most of us summer vacation has started. The kids are free from school and there is much quality time to spend together and make create great memories. Some of you will go away and some of you will stay at home. Either way I know, like me, you will make lots of pictures that will need to be scrapped later.


 Pictures are from Pinterest

Me and my girls made a list of things we want to do this summer that will end up in the bullet journal I recently started. I am also gonna make a list to hang on our to-do-board. I’ve found some great new free fonts that are perfect to practice hand lettering so I can hand write that to do list. They are also perfect to use on the scrapbook pages that I will make of our summer adventures.

Here they are:

 1. Painting In The Sunlight, 2. Architects Pen, 3. Autarquica, 4. Wilderness, 5. That I Love You, 6. Coffee and Tea, 7. Rose Of Baltimore, 8. Club Seven Espadas, 9. Sugarstyle Millenial, 10. Corn

Wishing you and your family an amazing summer!

NEW: JULY BYOC | BAKERS GONNA BAKE

At least up til NOW!
