So I bought these glass canisters from Wal-Mart years ago, like probably 10 or so, BUT they still have them there and in different sizes now. My original plan was to glass etch the labels on them, but
They really were quite easy to do, clean, cut, attach and peel the clear stuff off, yes it is supposed to come off or it looks strange after abt 4 hours and one might find themselves constantly repressing the clear cover that one thinks is supposed to stay on and get super exasperated until one's hubster comes along looks at it and says, "Babe, I think it's supposed to come off, it was just protecting the labels until you adhered it to something." Not that I would know from personal experience or anything, just saying.
I cut them into squares so I would constantly be creasing the other labels while turning and turning cutting them in ovals. Ahem, remember the warning that I gave before about the clear cover? Yeah the extra diligent part of trying to make the clear cover look totally awesome and machine cut, yea it was totally UNNECESSARY as the cover comes off and only the black part is left. The exasperation was heightened even more when I realized the most time consuming part was not needed. Again not personal experience, just trying to save your sanity. :0
Again, I'm a shampoo, rinse, repoeat gal, so do the same until all your canisters are done. This is how mine turned out. What do you think? I love how they turned out and to be honest this is one time that I'm glad I was lazy, so I can just peel off if things change.
Here's all the canisters finished up. The whole thing took me about 3 hours start to finish, of course I had to wash each canister one at a time, as they all had stuff in them. And probably about 1 hour was
Here's a close up picture:
So what do y'all think? I totally lurve them. I just wish that they did have an option to custom make them, but maybe I'll try my Momma's super Cricuit
soon ok truthfully maybe in a few months, or next year.....
Have y'all done any rehabs? The rehab was under $10 since I already had the canisters!, seriously! You must check out www.Pickyourplum.com I was hoping that they would pick me as one of their affiliates to have y'all go through my link on my blog. It's been a while and I've not heard from them and it's been a while, so I don't think I was picked. But I love y'all like a kitty loves fish (and yes I'm talking from personal experience from my cat Mags) so I definitely wanted to tell y'all about them. If you were to start from scratch the canisters are about $5 each, and the sheet of the labels were $7.95 plus $2.95 shipping but I split that with my neice since she bought a sheet also.
Hope y'all enjoyed reading and seeing this as much as I enjoyed doing it (sans the clear cover) and looking at them!
