One big step to creating an organized kitchen and pantry is labeling your items. Learn how to organize your pantry with pantry labels. Included in this post are pantry label printables for you to easily download and use.
I’m in love with my Cricut, there are so many projects I use my cutting machine for. While organizing my kitchen I need to do some labeling and of course, I put my Cricut to work. I created free pantry labels printable for you to download and print out so you can enjoy custom labels in your kitchen and pantry.
Custom Pantry Labels
I recently went through a big kitchen organizing overhaul. Finding anything in our cupboards was frustrating me. I went through each cupboard, shelf, and drawer and added shelf liners, labeled everything, and decluttered.
It was amazing. After I went through the great purge, I came to the conclusion that I needed more storage so I build shelves to help with that.
Organize your kitchen with pantry labels
The shelves really gave me a lot more storage to hold serving pieces and pantry items that I was storing in my garage. The last step I thought of the organizing process was to add labels to all of the glass and plastic containers. DIY labels have been a game-changer in terms of organizing.
Pantry label template
So I created a label template to create my own custom pantry labels. These printable label stickers are so simple to use. Use as labels for pantry or even labels for kitchen use.
Please note that the file is a PNG file with a transparent background so it may show up black in some windows but know that there is wording with a transparent background on each image.
I’ve included all of the ones I used for my kitchen.

- Cricut or Cameo

- Cotton rounds
Where can you find the supplies?
You can find supplies for making your own kitchen labels at Amazon, craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, etc.
What can I use as containers?
There are a number of containers you can use. Here are a few examples:
- Mason jars
- Glass pantry jars
- Plastic pantry jars
- Upcycled glass jars (from pasta or pickles, etc.)
- Transfer contact paper
How to print off the labels?
- Upload the file to your Cricut
- Size your images to the size you require (this depends on the containers you’re labeling)
Step 1: Clean the containers
Before you attach the vinyl to the container you want to make sure your containers are clean and dry. This will make sure that the pantry labels stick to the jars/containers.
I used rubbing alcohol and a cotton round for this step.
Step 2: cut labels
You may not need all of the pantry labels I used. After you have the labels sized to your liking you’ll want to cut them out using your cutting machine.
step 3: remove excess vinyl
The next step is to remove the excess vinyl so the word is exposed.
Step 4: Add contact paper to the vinyl
The easiest way to transfer the pantry labels to your container is to use some clear contact paper. Cut out a piece about the same size as the label and add to the top, remove the vinyl backing.
Step 5: transfer pantry label
Make sure that your pantry label is straight and centered on the container then press the label and secure it by rubbing the label to the container. Slowly remove the clear contact paper.
Step 6 and beyond: Enjoy an organized pantry
That’s it you’re done. You’ve added the pantry label to your container. Repeat this process for all of the pantry items you want to be labeled.
I hope that this has inspired you to add some labels to your kitchen and pantry. I’d love to know what area of your kitchen will you be adding these labels to? Let me know in the comments below.
