This week, I shared 11 of the best pantry organization tips for creating a more efficient and functional pantry for your home. One of the tips I shared was all about how labels are key to a well organized pantry. Why? Because if you know what you have and where it is, you can find what you need quickly and easily. Everything has a place.
While the main goal of pantry organization is to create a functional space for your food, there’s no reason why you can’t also make it look pretty! These pantry organization labels do just that, while also adding uniformity.

How to resize the labels to fit your containers
First, I recommend getting a ruler and measuring the side of the container you want the label to go on. To resize the labels to fit your own containers, simply select the words by clicking on them in your software. Then choose the “Ungroup Selected Shapes” option (for Silhouette users). From here you can, select individual words and resize them accordingly.
What should I used to cut the labels?
For my labels, I used permanent vinyl in a matte finish. Depending on what I was labeling, I chose either black or white vinyl for maximum visibility. I love the vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, but you can also find vinyl at your local craft store or on Amazon.
Additionally, if you are here, I am going to assume you have a cutting machine or know someone who does. I love my Silhouette Cameo and use it regularly for all types of projects (check out my other Silhouette projects for more inspiration). The great thing about these labels is that they can be used with any cutting machine because they are an SVG file, which is not specific to any one machine.
What if I need a label that isn’t included in the free files?
Since everyone’s needs are different, you may find that the label you need isn’t included with the free file. If this is the case, you can choose to download the font that I used to create the labels and make your own custom label.
The font I used is called Streetlight (it’s free). Here is a blog post that gives a full tutorial on how to install fonts on your computer.
*PRO TIP* Remember to weld the letters together before cutting to ensure the letters are all connected and don’t get cut individually.
How to apply your pantry organization labels
First, you will need to weed the excess vinyl. Once this is done, the easiest way to apply your new pantry organization labels is use transfer tape. Because it is clear, you can see exactly where you are placing the label before you adhere it to your container.
*PRO TIP* I recommend placing the transfer tape on the full sheet of labels BEFORE cutting the individual words out. This will save you time since you don’t have to cut transfer tape out for each individual word.
When it is placed where you want it, press down the label and rub on top of the vinyl with a squeegee, then slowly remove the transfer tape at a 45 degree angle to make sure it’s stuck on properly.
And that’s it! Once you’re done, take some time to admire your beautiful new pantry organization labels. Then tag me on Instagram at @sunshineandmunchkins or use the hashtag #sunshineandmunchkins so I can see your completed project!
