Quirky Canisters

Recipe By Tessa Arias
December 17th, 2010

I have something to admit. I’m slightly obsessed with kitchen organization, especially organized pantries. My dream is to one day have a pantry similar to the likes of Ina Garten but for now I like to keep all my food items organized with canisters. I usually prefer glass canisters because you can see exactly what is inside and how much, but glass can be boring. Recently I’ve seen some really adorable canisters online and in-stores.

    Hi Tessa, Can you tell me if you use a Cricut or other machine to make these labels and what is the design name/style of the “Flour or Sugar” labels in the second to last picture of this post…

    Thank you
