Hey Everyone! I just want to share what I made. My way to gain a whole shelf in the pantry!
MAGNETIC SPICE TINS
Here is what you need!
1.) Tins. I ordered mine from www.specialtybottle.com They were delivered in less than 24 hours!
I bought 15- 2 ounce (TNF2) tins and 20- 4 ounce (TNF4) tins. The 2 oz have a nice rim. The 4 oz have a flat top.
Most spices will fit better in the 4 ounce tins. For example cumin and cream of tartar will fit better in 2 oz.
With shipping my cost was $35.
Looking back I think I got the right depth, but I would get 12mm or larger instead of 6mm. I just had to use more of them. They are about as big as a pencil eraser.
With shipping my cost was $6.50.
3.) Glue. E6000 glue. I got mine at Michael's. It will change your life. Use just a small dab to attach magnets.
My cost $5
4.) Labels. I made my own by searching Antique botanical prints _______. Placing the spice name in the blank.
Message me via facebook.com/julieaphoto if you would like the files I used. I had Office Max print them to the exact sixes. I had the 2 oz labels printed at 2.2" and the 4 oz labels printed at 2.9" on card stock paper. It was very easy!
My cost $5.
The 4 oz tins got 3 magnets, and the 2 oz tins got 2 magnets.
After that dried ( I waited 24 hours ), I used a gel medium to get the labels to stick. I already had some.
I got it from Michael's. You also could use Modge Podge (make sure it is the clear) or any clear glue.
I coated the back and the front of the paper to protect from moisture. I did 2 coats.
