DIY Kitchen Canister Labels (Free Silhouette .Studio File)

It's pretty much any excuse to cut vinyl on my Silhouette these days.  My latest excuse came last week when I scored a set of matching vintage glass jars that I turned into canisters.  You can read about my find and why I just couldn't hide these in the pantry over on our sister site Two It Yourself.  But here we're gonna talk strictly DIY canister labels.

I actually ended up making two sets of labels because...well, like I said it's any excuse!  Both sets of labels were cut on white vinyl.  But this was a bit of an experiment and I'm happy to say both worked out great on glass jars and stainless steel canisters.

Alright so the first set of labels I made I use the 'label' design that comes as a free design with the Silhouette Studio.
I imported the design and then typed my text.  Now, I will say this - I would suggest making your label - especially the text portion - as big as you can.  I would also suggest selecting a 'sans serif' font.   That's a type of font like ARIAL that does not have the little points on the tips of the letters like TIMES NEW ROMAN.  Can you tell the difference? Anyway, when you're cutting vinyl this tiny on the Silhouette you have less of a chance of it ripping if you avoid the serifs.

After I got my first label exactly as I wanted it, I duplicated it Right click > Duplicate.  This is so the size was exactly the same.   I did have to adjust the font size slightly because of the length of some of the words.

I sent the file to cut on my Silhouette and then transferred the vinyl labels to my glass canisters. I couldn't decide if I liked the negative or positive label better so I just used both - one on each side.  I think it looks kinda cool that way.

Now, for my second set of stainless steel canisters, I made a set of round vinyl labels.  The only issue I had with these was that my canisters weren't all the same size so the label is a little overwhelming on the smallest canister. Oh well, I still think it looks cute and it make my pantry storage that much more functional!
