The Craft Train has been a bit slow around here lately... I've been traveling a lot and that's been putting a bit of a dent in my crafting/blogging schedule.
But tonight I did a little something that I thought I would share with you... labels!
We grill a lot around here (and be "we," I mean "Bill" -- he's a Grilling Superhero, I tell ya) and we've been experimenting lately with a variety of rubs. The rubs we buy come in these little brown bags. Like this:
I have a delicate sense of smell, so this container is not nearly scent-suppressing enough for me when these rubs are in the pantry.
So I bought some jars at Container & Packaging Supply (great prices, low minimums, fast shipping. If you need containers, check 'em out.) Then I cut out the front of the label and used packing tape (Ooh! Fancy!) to slap them on the jars:
I also put the ingredients on the back:
I really got into it and did all of our rubs... whee!
FYI: I originally tried putting the rubs in recycled baby food jars, but the lids were impossible to get off -- perhaps because baby food jars are not meant to hold powders and the powder gets stuck in the lid threads. That's my theory, at least. The point is: baby food jars will not work for this craft.
Sheesh. Was this the most boring "craft" in the world? I'm sorry. I'll try harder next time. ;)
