DIY Chalkboard Spice Labels - Maritza Lisa

I have to admit, I’m no chef, but …. I love to label things. The cooking is left to the husband (thank, heavens), while I’m in charge of “preparing” (read: re-heating) the meals. We have a good system. Trust. Anyhoo – since we have a free chalkboard background from Creative Market this week, why not put them to good use?


The What

The How

Step 1: Create a new file in Silhouette Studio, merge your chalkboard background, and create a rounded rectangle. Crop the rectangle with the background (see my earlier post this week as a refresher)

Step 2: Using an internal offset and text to path (a period from any font repeatedly will do), create an internal border in light grey or white

Step 3: Add your text/ spice names. Duplicate/ repeat for as many spice labels you need

Step 4: Print and Cut – example tutorial is in this post or the Silhouette America YouTube station. Remember to load your sticker paper, turn on your registration marks, and adjust your blade and cut settings to the correct media!

      Thanks, Ras. Got them at Michaels. They are magnetic at the bottom. If you want the stainless steel / silver ones, buy them in the packs – much cheaper. You’ll find them in the wedding aisle… I know way too much about this store…
