I recently renovated my kitchen with beautiful glass-front cabinets, and I want to put some pretty canisters and jars in there. So I’m going to use my Cricut to create my own DIY pantry labels that look good AND are easy to read, and I’m going to show YOU how to do it, too!

To make DIY pantry labels on a Cricut, you want either full-sheet label paper or the Cricut Smart Label writeable vinyl on a roll. I prefer the Cricut Smart Label vinyl’s look and feel, and it sticks better and is less likely to pick up food/grease, too.
You also need some canisters and jars to label — I’m using OXO Pop Containers as well as regular Mason jars in various sizes. If you use Mason jars, look for ones with smooth sides, as your label will stick to those better than ones with raised designs.
Now, I’m going to use my Cricut cutting machines to cut AND write my pantry labels. You can make these on any Cricut, but in this tutorial I’m going to show you how to make them on a Cricut Joy and a Cricut Maker… but an Explore would also do. The advantage to using the Cricut Joy is you can use the Smart Label material without a mat, and it’s easier to take the Cricut right into the kitchen with you as you label your things.
Oh, and you need a pen for your DIY pantry labels! I’m using a black fine-point Cricut pen, which is a .4 millimeter size. The size of your pen tip matters if you use my designs. Your Cricut can write and decorate your pantry labels with the pen right in the machine and they look fabulous!
Last but not least, you need a design for your pantry labels — it can be simple or fancy, it’s completely up to you. I’m going to show you how to make three different styles — a super easy simple label, a big, easy-to-read bold label, and a fancy script label that is totally on trend. I’ll even show you my tricks for getting the Cricut pen to fill in the fonts for bolder and more beautiful pantry labels!
