That is about to change.
As part of our mini-kitchen make over, we will be getting 20+ linear feet of open storage in the form of 2 7' long café shelves and a new 8' section of counter top. Yahooo!!!
So I've been keeping my eye out for fun open storage solutions when I came across these at Target:
I know, they don't scream "Fun open storage" just yet do they? But they will, I assembled some materials:
- Set of canisters, found at Target for $15.00 (which after researching I realized was a really good deal.)
- Black Vinyl
- My Cricut Expression
- Sure Cuts A Lot Sofware
- Contact Paper
- Various Cricut tools
After the designs had been kiss-cut on the cricut I weeded out the sections of vinyl that surrounded the letter.
I applied contact paper over the design and burnished with the burnishing tool so that the vinyl would stick to my contact paper, not to it's paper backing.
Next, peal up the contact paper and make sure the vinyl design has come with it.
Finally, apply the vinyl design to the canister, burnishing over the letter to make sure the vinyl sticks to the canister so that you can remove the contact paper:
Using the same method above, apply the full name to the top of the canister.
Repeat until you have the entire set:
A few close ups:
I can't wait 'till the kitchen is done so these can be where they belong... on our Café Shelves!!!
