Crafting material scraps such as wallpaper and fabric and be put to good use, while creating something useful for your home.
Labels! (This project is from my first book, The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen).
These labels are perfect for use around the home as they are wipeable, which makes them easy to clean. (Kitchens can be a messy place!)
1. Cut wallpaper or fabric into label shapes; I used rectangular on my jars shown here. To add a little charm, cut with pinking shears.
2. Cut two pieces of clear Con-Tact paper for each label, making them 1 inch larger in each direction. Sandwich each fabric/wallpaper label between the Con-Tact paper cut-outs; press together to seal. Trim the Con-Tact paper so that it makes a 1/4-inch border all around the fabric/wallpaper.
3. Use a Sharpie pen to write the name of whatever you are storing on each label. Affix the labels to jars or other storage containers with double-stick tape.
Jars: Martha Stewart for Macy's.
P.S. If you already have a copy of the book, I'd love it if you could provide a review here.
