Die Cut Self Adhesive Pantry Labels Tutorial

I am in the process of designing our new pantry and looking at kitchen designs as later this year we are planning on knocking our kitchen and dining room into one big room. Which I am so excited about as our current kitchen is so dark and old. That got me thinking about how I want to use my new kitchen and the best storage options for all my baking equipment so I have started organising what I currently have and as my ingredients have slowly grown over time I first needed to get some additional jars or containers. I love the Jane Asher range at Poundland and decided that for a very low budget I could get a whole bunch of containers that come in a pack of two with measuring spoons. Next I needed to decide how to label my new containers, in the past I have made my own printed labels and used alpha beads but this time I wanted something a bit different...

That's where my new Sizzix Big Shot Plus came into play, I could make as many labels as I needed using my new die cutting machine I just needed something to make them out of. Self adhesive Vinyl seemed the smartest option as it is very durable and would easily stick to my new containers so after a little research I found a great supplier on eBay who was selling mint self adhesive vinyl in A4 sheets, the perfect size for my new Big Shot Plus. I love how they have turned out and can't wait to see them in my new pantry...

Here's my tutorial on Die Cut Self Adhesive Pantry Labels...
