A few weeks ago we adopted a new rescue dog, Sophie. She’s adorable and sweet and fits in perfectly with our family. She’s like the Annie of dog world, she went from not so great conditions to living a life of luxury where her only worry is what kind of treat she wants today. Our sweet new family addition needed a place to put her food, so I whipped up some cute pet food labels to go on basic, big box jars. They’re so easy to make you can do it in just a couple of minutes, because I made the graphics for you (so the hard part is done!)
For this project you will need:
- Jars (I used gallon jars)
- Adhesive Vinyl (this is perfect for scraps because you only need about 6 inches)
- Transfer Tape
- Ruler with a bit of painter’s tape
- Silhouette & pick tool
First take the graphics below (click on them to open in a new window and save them to your computer) then use my tutorial for how to cut your own graphics to cut them with your Silhouette machine.
Once they’ve been cut out of your vinyl (I use my favorite kind from my friends at Happy Crafters), then pick off the excess vinyl from around the words. Cover them with transfer tape so you’re ready to adhere them to the jars.
Tape a small ruler inside the jar using a bit of painter’s tape – this will help get them centered.
Using the transfer tape, put the vinyl in the middle and use a scraper to make sure it’s well adhered before pulling the transfer tape off the jar to leave behind the vinyl. Fill it up with food and you’re done!
I made one for Sophie plus one for our cat Buddy, because we can’t leave that fella out of the fun! Isn’t that font perfect? I shared the graphic above because it’s a rather pricey font – so hopefully you’ll put them to good use 🙂
