Spring cleaning has been in full swing over here, and the latest area to get an organization makeover was our kitchen. I dreamed of cupboards filled with rows of matching containers filled with all our baking and cooking staples. Flour, sugar, salt, yeast, etc. would be in easy to grab clear containers with lids, all labeled and organized.
Well I’m happy to say that my dream is finally a reality! We have been emptying large flour bags and dumping containers from packages into matching storage containers, and I just love how cohesive everything looks!
The icing on the cake is the classic pantry labels I made with my Cricut Explore Air 2, Martha Stewart Special Edition machine from Michaels. This machine is SO versatile and can make practically anything I dream up! It perfectly cuts vinyl, iron-on, paper, and so much more.
I was inspired by the Martha Stewart Inspirational Message project in Cricut Design Space, so I used it as the base of my pantry labels to go on my kitchen canisters. The bold, clean lines of this project were the perfect start to creating my own bold labels.
Just follow along below to make your own set! You can adjust the size, font, color, or whatever else that you’d like so that these pantry labels work for you.
Easy DIY Pantry Labels with Cricut
- Cricut Explore Air 2, Martha Stewart Special Edition machine
- Cricut + Martha Stewart Removable Matte Premium Vinyl
- Cricut Transfer Tape
Step 1. Go to Cricut Design Space and open the Pantry Labels cut file. Adjust the labels to fit your containers and add or delete any labels that you might need or not need.
Step 2. Click the green “Make It” button and follow the prompts to cut your vinyl. I used the matte black color vinyl from the Cricut + Martha Stewart Removable Matte Premium Vinyl Metallic Collection. I love the flat black look and the fact that the vinyl is removable! The vinyl goes on really easily and is perfect for somany different projects.
Step 3. Once the vinyl is cut, you will need to cut around each individual label. Remove the excess vinyl so that just the words are left.
Step 4. To keep your word labels nice and straight, you will use transfer tape. Cut a piece of transfer tape about the size of a label, then peel it off the paper backing. Press the clear transfer tape over your label letters, then press firmly over the letters to adhere them to the tape.
Slowly lift up the transfer tape, making sure that the letters stick to it. Apply the label to a kitchen canister by pressing the transfer tape onto the clean surface, making sure to rub firmly over each letter. Slowly peel up the transfer tape.
Now you have lovely labeled kitchen containers that all match! No more messy packages, non-matching packaging, and trying to remember everything that’s stuffed into your cupboards.
I love my new organized kitchen! It looks so clean and is so easy to find everything I need in my cupboards.
The next area on my organizing list is the cupboards above my closet. Everything is neat and clean up there in plastic boxes, but I need to make more labels with my Martha Cricut machine so I know exactly what is up there.
What’s a messy area in your home that needs some organization? Pretty labels just make everything better, so why not try making some with Cricut and Martha Stewart?
