Cricut: How to Make Storage Jar Labels

Level
Beginner
Time
1 hour
Budget
10 - 30

Transform your kitchen with adhesive jar labels that will help you organise your storage for cooking and baking convenience! We've used clip-top jars to show you how to make these labels, but you can add them to any jar or box with a smooth surface.

With your Cricut machine on hand, you'll be able to use fonts to suit your style, with greater personalisation possibilities than a standard label maker. We've used the Cricut Maker for this project, however it can also be created using the Cricut Joy and Explore machines.

Step 1

Open up a new project canvas in the Design Space app, then click on the text icon and search for 'Dear John' font.

Step 2

Write out your labels in the text box that appears on-screen. We typed the words Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Biscuits and Sugar, pressing the return/enter key after each word so that they're each on separate lines.

Step 3

Click the "Edit" icon and adjust the font size to 42 and change the font style to bold. Align the text centrally.


Once happy with the design of the labels, click the green "Make It" button.

Step 4

You'll then be taken through to the mat preview screen. Check everything looks good on the mat preview before clicking "Continue".

Step 5

Trim a piece of vinyl six inches square and place it on to the top left-hand corner of your cutting mat.


Please note: If you've made your labels larger or smaller, make sure to adjust the amount of vinyl cut accordingly.


Top tip: I've used removable vinyl for my labels which means the vinyl can be removed (for up to three years) if I want to replace it with a new label. If you're creating labels that are there to stay, you can use permanent vinyl instead.

Step 6

After the mat preview screen you'll then go through to the machine settings screen, choose Cricut Premium Vinyl from the "All Materials" menu.


Top tip: If you're using the Explore Air 2, you can either turn the Smart Dial to vinyl or use the custom setting and select Cricut Premium Vinyl as above.
