Salad in a Jar with Cricut Chalkboard Vinyl
My interest in the salad in a jar concept came because the salad is supposed to stay fresh up to a week after it's been sealed in a jar. I can never get cut salad to stay fresh. Plus I thought the salad looked cool in the jar...LOL! And it's a quick meal, immediately ready!
For much cooler pictures of salad in a jar, recipes and instructions, check out Salad in a Jar and Healthy, Happy Life (it's vegan but you can substitute meat things if you like).
I cut the labels (scalloped and regular circles) at 2.5" and 2.25" from the Cricut Craft Room Basics free set of images. I layered the chalkboard layer onto the regular vinyl layer.
I'm not too concerned about it holding up as I have plastic cups with vinyl on them that I made two years ago that look new. And I wash those in the dishwasher all the time.
A couple things about the Cricut chalkboard vinyl: It needs be cut at pressure of 4 and blade depth of 4, speed at 3. Also, it comes with a sheet of transfer tape in the package (woo hoo!).
After working on taking photos of food, I have a newfound respect for those food bloggers...it's really hard! I can't wait to get back to photographing paper projects..hee hee!
