|Starch and Sucrose: My kitchen-nerd is a closet chemist.|
I've been seeing labeled storage jars all over blog-land. When I saw these large two-gallon glass jars for a mere $7 each I knew my inner kitchen chemist would take over on labeling.
Since I don't own one of those nifty Silhouette Machines, I did the labeling the old fashioned way- with contact paper and a craft knife. I actually was able to use a document program on my computer to size the words, then printed them off. Being careful to tightly layer the printed words over my contact paper, I just cut through all the layers to have my letters.
Total Cost: 2 jars @ 7 dollars each, Wood Grain Contact paper @ Free (left overs from lining cabinets)= $14
Total Time: 15 minutes.
Now I'm contemplating my utensil jar with it's bare white walls. It screams out for a matching label- I just need to find a nerdy word for "utensils".
