Tutorial: Popcorn Seasoning Set by Michelle

Michelle Giraud was inspired by a post on Pinterest showing a set of seasoning salts for popcorn in glass jars and plastic bags and she thought that the SRM Mini Tubes, Glassine Bags and Cooking themed stickers would be just perfect for her project.  And she was right!

Michelle felt the tubes needed something to hold them together as a set, so she made a top and bottom "box" to set them in.  To make the box you'll need 2 pieces of cardstock 5.25"x3".  Score each side @ 1", cut lines as shown in diagram (not to scale) then glue/tape the box together folding the excess flaps to the inside. Completed box will measure 3.25" x 1".  She decorated both the top and bottom with scalloped trim and stickers from Freestyle Cookin' which were adhered to black cardstock then trimmed.

Michelle used mini tubes to store her seasonings and embellished the little box she created with SRM Cooking Stickers.  Perfect!

Michelle made 3 salt mixes; spicy Mexican, savory garlic & pepper, and sweet cinnamon & sugar.  Each tube holds 1/4 cup of seasoning.  Here are her recipes:

Spicy Mexican Salt
1/4 cup salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cumin

Savory Garlic Pepper
1/4 cup salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Sweet Cinnamon Sugar
1/8 cup salt
1/8 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 

Michelle mixed each salt and used a small funnel to pour into the tubes.  The Express Yourself Recipe stickers have the perfect square stickers to label the tubes spicy, savory and sweet.

Michelle measured out 1/2 cup servings of popcorn and put them in decorated SRM Glassine bags.  She used stickers from Freestyle Cookin' and red stitches to decorate.   

Michelle finished off the set in a yellow cardstock popcorn box which was made from a template from  What a great resource Green Sneakers is.  So many templates!  

Here are just a few of the SRM Cooking stickers.  See them all HERE.

What a wonderful gift for a popcorn loving friend!  Thank you Michelle for this delicious inspiration.
