Vinyl Letters

Ok, I'm back. My post belows talks about how I bought jars at Wal-Mart. I organized my pantry and wanted to label my jars. After walking around Hobby Lobby, trying to find something amazing to use, I decided to use what I had on hand. My Silhouette maker would be perfect. So, I came home empty handed.

Here you can see, plain old jar. Not very exciting.

Next I cut out my letters..... then apply to jar.

Wow! Look at that. Completely changes the jar.

GOSH DARN IT! Cereal is not in that jar, it has Powdered Sugar in it. Hold on, I will be back.


Hopefully everything is labeled correctly. Wouldn't it be something if they ate bird seed instead of cereal?

If you would like to learn more about the Silhouette maker....go to Youtube and do a search for Quickutz Silhouette. Here are couple of ones that I like

LOVE those jars, especially the vinyl lettering. And a big thanks for the links to learn more about the Silhouette. I borrowed my sister's cricut and HATE it. Do you LOVE your silhouette...and WHY? Please do share!

Love it! Love it! They look great! You have inspired me to tackle my pantry, yet again! Seems like I do it every six months or so. Maybe this time I can do it like you have and it will actually last! :)
