After hitting the mother lode in glass storage jars at TJ Maxx, I quickly realized that I needed a way to label my jars. I have purchased printed labels in the past that I would use to label my Tupperware containers. It was a love/hate relationship. I loved the way it looked, but I hated that flour was the ONLY thing that could go in the container that was labeled flour. If I pulled the label off, then I wouldn't have another matching label for when I needed to label the flour again. So I knew I wanted a way to change the label if I needed to. I thought about the chalkboard paint, but wasn't sure it would stay on glass very well. I also thought the chalk dust might be messy. A little research and I found these great chalk pens.
I absolutely love these pens! They look like chalk, but with the fine writing of a marker and none of the dusty, chalk mess. Now I just needed the something to use as the label. I ran to my local Jo-Ann's and could not find anything like the chalkboard contact paper. However, I did find this...
and it worked like a charm! They come in sheets of different colors and designs. I have lots of red in my kitchen, so red was what I chose. I used one of my discount coupons and purchased a punch and went to town.
I am so happy with the results. The duck tape stays stuck on really well and the chalk wipes off with a damp towel (or finger). So if I decide I really don't like fava bean flour, I can totally use something else in that jar!
