DIY 1:12 scale miniature canister labels

My inspiration typically stems from something I can't readily find in the market. I have a fascination with canisters a while now, as you can see. I always envy, and I still do, when I do a google search and see the many pretty ones in REAL life size. And then I would go, oh why don't they have this in dollhouse scale?

As I started making some in dollhouse miniature scale, I decided to try making some decals because it was the key thing. I love the shabby chic, elegant look so I spent a lot of time selecting, trying out colours, making sure the sizes are right.

I got more and more involved as I started making them and can't stop with just 1 style...and ended up with 7 different types. I love pink and all things feminine, so you'll see that most of the designs are a reflection of my style. I'm sure there must be a particular design you like. As if that's not enough, I made 8 different types of canister labels for each style, so you can line up your canisters and display them all. Just imagine how your dollhouse kitchen will look with them!
For a complete elegant, or shabby chic kitchen look, I've added plain designs without words, so you can attach them to your other kitchen utensils!

I'd love to see how your dollhouse kitchen looks like with these DIY miniature canister decals!
