Vinyl: Personalized labeling with vinyl and KNK

I’m back with another vinyl in the kitchen project. I recently refurbished my kitchen and decked it out with IKEA accessories. For this project, I created vinyl labels for my organic cooking spices and seasonings (since they don’t come in their own jars).

Materials:

Settings:

I opened Make-the-Cut and selected a font. For this project I used Vladimir Script. After typing in the words for each label, I split each object (word) and then welded it. Because of the font I selected, in most cases, I also had to break the object and remove some small (and unnecessary) shapes that I knew would not cut right at such a small size. And finally, I joined the word shapes together.

I used two straight lines to ensure my words were the same height.

Then I simply duplicated the lines and moved them into the planned cutting area so it would be easier to weed the vinyl.

I cut the vinyl on my Maxx Air using the settings above. Then, using transfer tape, I applied the labels to each of the jars.

And here is the final result, in my IKEA holder.

And now, I am off to make labels for the larger jars! I hope this project inspires you to PERSONALIZE – whether it be kitchen labels like this, or pencil boxes for the kids, or whatever your creativity urges you to make!

About Cuttin' with KNK (Michele)

I am the proud mother of 2 grown children, waiting for grandchildren some day. I've been married to my best friend since 1988. I have been crafting since I was a girl - I can't even remember a time when I wasn't creating something, and I've tried nearly everything. I discovered KNK in 2009 and have loved the company and its products ever since. The machines are so versatile and enhance my own creativity. It is rare that I make something without my KNKs.
