I love using mason jars. I think they look nicer than basic plastic tupperware and also prefer to use glass over plastic whenever possible. A pantry full of mason jars looks so pretty until you forget exactly what type of flour or pasta or spice you have stored inside each jar.
My favorite way to easily label mason jars is to use part of the carton and sandwich it between the lid and the metal ring.
You will need:
-Container/box/bag the pantry item came in
-mason jar with lid and metal ring
Lay the metal lid on top of the piece of paper/cardboard. You can either first trace the lid or just use your fingers to hold the lid and paper together while you cut the paper to be roughly the same size and shape as the lid.
Place the metal lid on your jar. Before screwing the metal ring onto the jar, place the cut out piece of paper on top of the lid. Screw the metal ring on top (you’re effectively sandwiching the paper between the ring and the lid to keep it in place).
By the way, the coffee in this post is from Peaks Coffee Co. It’s so tasty, I highly recommend!
