Free Kitchen Label Download

I think I figured out how to share my kitchen cannister label design that I used on my Ikea glass jars.

 

I realize they are pretty basic and some of you are probably thinking “Ummmm, dude?  You made a red circle with another red circle inside.  Don’t quit your dayjob” (too late I’m afraid).  But I hope that maybe they will save some of you a little hassle and make it easier to customize your kitchen. 

 Just click on the JPEG (below) to enlarge it and then save that version to your computer. 

 After that the possibilities are many. 

 You can just go ahead and print them as is. 

 You can open them into any drawing program and play around with color and size (they could be cupcake toppers or place cards or anything else you liked).   Or simply insert the JPEG into MS Word and go to town using text boxes to add the wording of your choice.

 If you want to match mine I used a Font called “Honest John’s” which is available for free here .

 For my canisters I painted the top with Krylon’s Fusion spray paint which is made for plastics and works great.  I then printed the circles onto Avery 8.5×11 label sheets, cut them out and slapped ‘em on the canisters.  This, of course, does not make them washable but they are easily replaced if needed.  You could also decoupage them on or, I think, use LaserTran transfer paper which I’ve never tried but it looks way cool.

 If you do use them I would really enjoy seeing the final result!

 And if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.  It’s always hard to gauge how computer friendly people are and I may have skipped some key step.

 Best,

David

About cheltenhamroad

I’ve been surrounded by amazingly creative people my whole life. My mom can, and does, make anything. The family has on occasion speculated that she just whipped up my dad one day when she discovered some left over fabric and stuffing. My three sisters have mad skills ranging from needlework to cooking to out and out ART. My father’s desk when I was growing up had a model train set going around it, oh, and he made that desk-from scratch. I’m the youngest and, as you can imagine, it’s a hard series of acts to follow. Truth be told, I’ve spent many, many years suppressing the creative instincts I learned at home. But I realized (rather late in life) that few things bring me more joy than making and creating. For the longest time when I went to stores I didn’t think, “I want that” I thought, “I can make that.” And, with a deep breath and a leap, I’ve started on a very new, kinda scary path. I’ve given up my steady, dependable (dull!) corporate life to spend my days happily humming away in my garage designing, creating, painting, decoupaging and sawing and, since this blog will be an honest take on things, there is also a fair amount of tripping, spilling and swearing. Through this blog I hope to share with you the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs of a very non-businessy business person. I also hope to make this blog a resource for people who like to work with their hands and who are, like me, always looking at things and thinking “I could make that!” I’ve lived many places since I left Cheltenham Road; I currently live in Los Angeles California. So, with this preamble- Welcome to Cheltenham Road! Please come on over and make yourself comfortable – the place is always open.
