I finally decided to make my own pre-made mix and just store it in a container with the recipe all ready to go. I bought a container at Target and used my Silhouette to add a label to the side of the container and the recipe to the front. This is a screen shot from my Silhouette program of the labels I designed and cut out of black outdoor vinyl. I used outdoor vinyl so that it would hold up through multiple washings.
This is the finished product, now all I have to do is find my favorite recipe for pancakes, mix all the dry ingredients together and store it in my new container!
Having the recipe right on the side of the container makes it just as easy as store bought mix. We just have to measure the required amount of mix, add an egg, milk and oil, cook and then enjoy our pancakes!
I also added some labels to my flour and sugar containers. As soon as I figure out what I am going to put in my small container, that will get a label too! Here is a little before and after:
I am loving my new labels and have a few more ideas for mixes and labels that I want to make! I think a homemade brownie mix is up next...
