Happy New Year friends! January is by far my most favorite month of the year, not just because it’s my birthday month, but because I LOVE to get organized! Let’s be honest, it’s impossible to only organize your home one month out of the year, but it helps beat the winter blues by taking time in January to deep clean the house. This year I thought it would be great to start with my pantry. That’s one place that always seems to get cluttered and crazy!
Our friends over at Cricut® have organized my dream pantry using the Cricut Explore. Let’s take a peek at all of these amazing projects!
This entire pantry scene will be showcased on Cricut.com next week, but until then, here’s how you can make several of these projects on your own. And get excited friends… many of these images are BRAND NEW and will be for available for sale on January 15th! Yay for getting organized!
Here’s what you need to make these projects:
Cricut Explore® Machine
Cricut Design Space™ Software
12” x 12” Standard Grip Cricut® Mat
Cricut® Printable Sticker Paper
Cricut® Metallic Pen, Silver
Cricut® Vinyl, in the color of your choice
Cricut® Transfer Tape
Cardstock, in the color of your choice
Twine or string
Glass jars and Containers
Ready to get started? Let’s make the tags drawn with the pen tool first. These are perfect for spices, cooking supplies, or even labeling drawer fronts! To make the pantry tags, open Cricut Design Space™ and follow the instructions to cut and draw the images from cardstock.
Use adhesive to layer the tags with the font on top and add them to your jars with string or twine.
The project file in Cricut Design Space™ includes tags for several popular baking supplies, but you can easily customize the labels fit your own needs.
Ready to try another easy organizational project? Let’s try some vinyl labels!
All you need is vinyl in your favorite color, plain white cardstock for your backing, and Cricut® Transfer Tape.
To get started, follow the instructions in Cricut Design Space™ to cut the images from vinyl and cardstock.
Use Cricut® Transfer Tape to transfer your vinyl image to white cardstock.Gently remove the Cricut® Transfer Tape from the label.
Use adhesive to adhere the label to your container. These versatile crates can be used for so many projects. They can be painted, stained or left raw (my favorite trend right now).
All right, your pantry is looking pretty good! Let’s make one more project from our Cricut® pantry! These Print Then Cut labels are super easy to make and customize.
To make these labels, just use your home office inkjet printer paired with the new Cricut® Printable Sticker Paper!
First, follow the instructions in Cricut Design Space™ to Print Then Cut the labels from sticker paper.
Next, adhere stickers to the surface of your container. These photo boxes and baskets are perfect for pantry organization!
That’s it! So easy. There are so many ways you can get organized with your Cricut Explore® and a few supplies from Michaels.
Here are a few more photos of this dream pantry. I hope they help you to get organized in the new year, and maybe even inspire you to try cooking something new!
