    I love how the little kernels look in my canister, and we make a ton of air popped popcorn!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  19. Shannon Taylor says:

    I love these labels! My partner and I recently purchased our first home so I’m loving the inspiration from your blog and Ive made a special trip to Ikea for these little jars to do this trendy idea. If I was lucky enough to win I think a jelly bean and pasta label would be essential to add to the collection!

    My custom label would be “cacao”


  21. Erin Madsen says:

  22. kathy says:

    Kristine, it’s funny how things like that work out…..I remember seeing them for the first time and I was taken back….so classy, so country, so homely and yes they are still on my “to do” list. I did buy my Ikea jars before the School Holidays started so half way there. I would love one that says “Bakers Flour” as I use it all the time for focacia’s, turkish bread etc.

  23. Erin Marie says:

    Love these! No custom needed!

  26. Lee-Anne Dunstan says:

    Pasta, Pasta and Pasta. Then I would share the rest with my daughter who has just bought her own home and is slowly turning it into her own perfect little space. These canister stickers are perfect as they are funky yet practical. :)

  27. Lori says:

    Great labels! I think I would ask for the sugar label. Seems to be the one that gets mixed up the most.
