DIY Kitchen Canister Labels {printables}

I have been looking for some kitchen canisters to help me get my kitchen organized. Up to this point I've been using an assortment of cheap plastic containers and plastic bags. The collection was so ugly, I had them stuffed in the very back of my pantry.
I was shopping on Amazon with some gift codes I won and I came across the Prepworks from Progressive Flour Keeper and put two of them in my shopping cart, one for flour and one for sugar. Then I discovered the Brown Sugar Keeper and the Powdered Sugar Keeper, so I added them to my order too.
I wanted to make labels for my four new kitchen canisters so I logged onto Pic Monkey to create some pretty labels. In just a few minutes I created four labels and printed them out onto some Canson Self-Adhesive Textured Paper. I trimmed them down with my Fiskars Paper Cutter.
I chose a light green colored ink and printed on a light colored background because I wanted a soft look. When I printed them, I sized the larger labels to print as a 3"x5" size photo and the smaller labels to print as a wallet size photo.
The canisters are wonderfully designed, some with built-in levelers for exact measuring. The powdered sugar keeper features a mesh top for dusting foods with powdered sugar and the brown sugar keeper features a terra cotta insert to keep the brown sugar fresh. All the keepers have a silicone seal and a flip-top lid.
Once I had them all labeled, I filled them with my ingredients and decided they are pretty enough to display on my countertop. I've also decided I will eventually want more canisters, so I pre-made labels for wheat flour, potato flakes, dried beans, dried rice, and pancake mix. I also created a template label so I can add any others I want later.
My little DIY project only took me about an hour from start to finish, and I'm thrilled with the results. I've also included the labels below, with links where you can print out my label designs out on your own printer if you wish.
