Using cloth nappies with Little Snicker means I have an abundance of empty nappy soaker containers:
I had been thinking about using them for storage on the craft table for quite some time, but was undecided how to label the lids.
While doing my daily 'blog read', I stumbled across this tutorial over at I am Momma Hear me Roar and thought that while the technique was simple, it would certainly suit my needs.
The process of making the containers into storage was so simple I decided to show you how to make your own:
You will Need:
First, take off the label on the container and cut a piece of decorative paper the same size as your label:
Spread the back of your paper with Mod Podge:
Roll the paper onto the container:
Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge over the outside of your paper to help protect it:
While waiting for the Mod Podge to dry, print the labels for your lids. I used MS Word to type up my labels in a 26pt font called "Snap ITC" (and yes, I do know I have two 'cotton' labels. That's because I have too much cotton for one container!):
Next, find a circle slightly smaller than the inner circle on your lid:
Use that circle to trace a circle around your labels, making sure the word for your label is in the centre:
Cut around each of the circles, spread Mod Podge on the back and adhere the circle to the lid. Allow to dry before painting a thin coat of Mod Podge over the top to seal:
Once dry, you can store all of your supplies!
