Vinyl Your Kitchen Canisters!

For this month’s Silhouette Challenge, we got a little crafty crazy and THEMED it! (who doesn’t love a good theme right?!) This month’s theme is going to help you tackle your New Years Resolution because we are talking ORGANIZATION!

So in order to help you with your Organization Resolution (and to pretty up your kitchen) I will show you how to spice up your counters with some Vinyl Labeled Canisters!

First, you should pick a design that you like (Silhouette Store Design ID #18978 ). Then measure your canisters and adjust your image size (I like to do this first, sometimes if I wait till the end I forget to re-size it and I have to cut it twice..and I hate to waste!) Now pick a font you like and write onto the open space.


Once you are ready to cut, highlight both the image AND the words and right click Make Compound Path.


Now we are ready to cut! I like to slow my speed down when working with intircate designs, so as you can see my speed is at 1, thickness is 9, and blade is at 2. I also had a full sheet of vinyl so I did not use a cutting mat.


Time to weed (I use a dental pick).


Once that’s complete it looked like this..pretty right?


 If you’ve never used transfer paper it’s to ensure everything gets moved in one easy motion so you carefully lay the sticky side of the paper directly on top of your vinyl, and go over it with your credit card..this helps remove any air bubbles, and reinforces the adhesion. You then carefull peel the transfer paper (and now your vinyl) from the paper backing and place onto your surface. Then once again you run your credit card over the transfer paper.


Then once you are satisfied that it is stuck and that there are no air bubbles you peel the transfer paper off.


These pictures really don’t do it justice they look nicer in person… and the project was oh so easy!

Now, go check out my Silhouette Buddies below! They have a TON of  great ideas for Organizing your house!!

  1. Lovely Dee! The swirl detail is just perfect. Which design did you use? And I’m totally with you on slowing the speed down to 1, I do it all the time!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! You have done a great job of highlighting the many uses for the Cameo other than just paper crafting.

    1. Thanks Suzanne! I have to admit I am a bit scared of paper crafting, I feel like you need to be patient for all the little details.. and I’m lacking that! But I believe one of our challenge months is paper .. so that is a good thing I need to step out of my box!! 🙂

    1. It takes time, and even then there’s usually one thing that we all tend to forget. My thing is having the zoom to far zoomed and then cutting something I meant to delete since I didn’t see it. 🙂

  3. These are so great! I love the fancy scrollwork on the labels. Makes me wish I’d gone that route…lol. Thanks for sharing and for kicking off our challenge tour in the FB group!

  4. Dee Those labes are the cutest ever! I love the style. Your jars looks so pretty! I’m jealous LOL!. I haven’t used vinyl… ever! Can you believe it??? I’ve tried using contact paper but without the transfer is very hard LOL. I used scotch tape it makes the trick but with transfer would be less painful LOL.

    Love and pining!

  5. I need to just suck it up and do this project! I have 3 different canisters of flour (all purpose, bread, & whole wheat)… Each time I go to use a flour, it’s a guessing game which one is which because I’ve just been too lazy to get my silhouette machine out to label it all! I love how fancy you made your labels! Sadly, mine won’t look anywhere near as beautiful as yours!

  6. I have never used vinyl because the transfer paper made me nervous. Now I am ready to spread my vinyl Wings and Fly! I will share my project when it gets warmer. It has to do with a boat. Thank you for sharing your knowledge to give me the courage to try this special tribute.

  7. Visiting from the Grant life post on FB. Had to pin for later on my Silhouette Cameo board. Super cute design …and I love the rest of the linked posts, too!
