Spice storage tins


#1

I recently switched to magnetic spice tins for storage. I replaced the thin plastic tops with laser engraved versions. I am quite happy with how it came out.


#2

That’s going right on my to-do list. I love labeling things. I made these with my vinyl cutter. 100% less pew-pew, though. :slight_smile:


#3

Is that just the engrave showing up so white or did you paint after engraving? They look great!


#4

I did the same thing long ago when I had several different types of salt. The vinyl cutter is a wonderful too.


#5

Paint. In this case I engraved the acrylic and painted it before I remove the protective sheet. Other times I just score the material and remove the sheet in the places I want painted.


#6

Love that effect - it’s so easily read! :grinning:


#7

So cool! I want to do that. Would you care to share your source for the tins?


#8

if you google magnetic spice tins, you can probably find some; they’re all over (i have very similar ones i bought locally).


#9

Those look wonderful!


#10

Add this to things my wife will want lol.


#11

I’m so wanting to do this! Mine are labelled with a P-Touch label maker right now, which is severely lacking in style.


#12

Impressed with both storage solutions!


#13

Jealous! We can’t stick magnets on the front of our fridge. They stick okay on the side but since it’s tucked between a wall on one side and a counter & cabinets on the other there’s not a lot of real estate - and that’s reserved for impressive kid stuff :slight_smile:


#14

We can’t either - it’s got a cabinet front on it. (Cool idea though - it would certainly save a lot of real estate inside the fridge door.) :slightly_smiling_face:


#15

I got these at Cost Plus World Market. I bought two larger diameter tins for Bay Leaves and Cinnamon Sticks.


#16

Such an amazing variety of spices!!


#17

Pretty sure I’m in love with this.
Consider the idea stolen.
Hmmmm… Wonder how I’ll repurpose the spice cabinet now…


#18

I love this. I should look into this with my fridge.


#19

what about using adhesive magnetic-receptive material to line the inside of a few cabinet doors, and sticking magnetic spice-jars to that?

Interesting find.
