Spice labels printable10:29 AM
I have been cleaning my spice cabinet recently. And with that cleaning spree came the urge to prettify things a little. I can't help myself, I need to make pretty labels and leave my personal touch on things. And I promise, I will join the "I am a pretty labels addict" support group as soon as I find the "Gitter glue-a-holic association".
In the meantime, I figured out that I might as well share my urge with others. You know, because sharing is caring...and perhaps because there is a chance I might be the only label/glitter/prettifying addict out there and that unless I can convert more people, I would a lonely soul at those meeting (probably glitter gluing the plate of cookies and labelling the drinks to kill time).
So!!! since I have been busy designing pretty labels, and printed them out. I am going to share them with you. You can download them here.
I left one label blank so you can edit it at will. You can also erase the text on the other labels. I am sure I am the only one with a "Magic Masala" jar. the name has been made up by me and some friend after said friend brought back some masala we had no name for from her native place. Since said spice mix goes well on a million thing the name stuck.
If you want to keep the font of colour I used for additional labels, here it is:
Font: Segoe Script
Colour code: #ff387a
I printed mine on normal paper, and then taped them to each jar. The tape makes them waterproof which is a good idea considering we usually grab the spices while cooking, possibly with hands that are damp or dirty.
If you don't want to go through that hassle, print them on adhesive sheets instead. I might end up doing that the day I will tackle my pantry items jars (I know that will happen, I have plans already).
Those of you in India, might wonder why I don't have a "masala dhaba" aka Spice Box. The reason is simple really. I hate them. Plain old simple, they do not work for me, they take a lot of space, and I could totally see me sending the entire box flying of the counter while cooking sending all of its content flying.
I prefer individual spice jars that close with no risk of everything mixing and looking dirty, plus I know how much shaking I need to do on those jars to get a tea spoon out. It is a matter of preference.
Beside, imagine the monster label I would have to print for that box!
