I loved the beautiful cabinets and pantries on Pinterest. So I thought I would give it a chance. It took a little bit of shopping around.
I was fortunate to find 3L jars at Christmas Tree Shops. I really wanted to organize the cabinets, make everything more streamlined and matching. I've read on other blogs that you can also find similar glass jars at Dollar Stores, I checked my local stores, but I didn't find them.
You can also find these jars at http://www.jarstore.com/ , or here http://www.sks-bottle.com/Glass.html , and here http://www.containerandpackaging.com/catalog/glass-jars/14/ .
I edited some labels that I found here: http://blog.worldlabel.com/2009/free-fillable-suzee-que-vintage-labels.html . and I printed off labels that I found here, already made up: http://thesocialhome.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/pantry-pretty-dollar-store-pantry.html , and here http://limeshot.com/2012/free-printable-mason-jar-labels .
I washed this jar in the dishwasher. I slipped the lid off and washed it by hand. I pinched the two metal parts together and slipped it back on.
Using Mod Podge, I covered the back of my label on a scrap piece of paper, make sure to get all of the corners.
Quickly set the label on your jar, before the Modge Podge starts to get dry. Next, I used a paper funnel from some computer paper to make it easier to fill this jar with Whole Wheat Flour.
One Cabinet down, four to go!
This gives me joy everyday as I work in the kitchen. These cute jars help the kitchen feel even more homemade.
