homemade ice cream kit

Hey, I'm back!  Miss me?  :)

My sister-in-law got a rockin' ice cream maker for Christmas.  So when her birthday rolled around last week, I knew just what to make for her:  a homemade ice cream kit!


First I designed some super cute labels with my Silhouette machine (seriously, one of my favorite things ever).  The labels are printed on full-page office labels.  Of course, you don't need a fancy machine to cut them out, but now that I don't have to do it by hand I can add fun details like a scalloped edge with no extra work.  Love that. 


The white, pint-sized ice cream cartons are found at Smart & Final.  The cartons and lids each come in sleeves of 25.


Then I added some delicious mix-ins from Trader Joe's.  You already know about my addiction to the mini peanut butter cups, but now the Dark Chocolate Tahitian Vanilla Caramels are climbing the list.  Is that not the most scrumptious sounding treat you've ever heard of?  Hoo, boy.

Here is a printable label if you'd like to join the ice-cream party.  Save the image and drop it into a word document to re-size and print as many times as you'd like.  Personal use only, please!  Email me if you want a copy of the file to print and cut from your Silhouette: homemadebyjill@gmail.com.


If you are looking for pint-sized ice cream containers online, check out Sweet Bliss Containers (disposable), or Zak Designs Ice Cream Tubs (reusable).

Awesome! How can I get it so I can print it out on my silhouette? Is that possible?

So happy you're back...what an absolutely clever idea...if I knew anyone who made homemade ice cream I'd be tempted to do this for them!

Jen said...

I just randomly found your blog awhile ago. I love your ideas. Glad you are back and glad you took some time for family!

I have you listed as a favorite on my blog. Here is my blog if you are ever interested:

Enjoy!

I have missed you so much (which is weird to say to a person I've never met, I know, I know...) and I am SO glad you're back--with a great idea, no less!

I am definitely going to have to duplicate this since I have a few friends who, like me, occasionally make ice cream.

Oh so glad you're back!

Tristin said...

Oh, and I failed to mention I like the new pink makeover on the blog--it's making me feel "spring"y!

Kristen @ Surrender Your Chevy said...

Yes, I did miss you. Glad you're back. Cute labels, I'd love to see more of your Silhouette projects. I bought one in November but haven't had time to play much.

handmade clothing, custom seamstress said...

now that is a great idea! Very cute!

lifeinredshoes said...

Another great idea!
And yes, you were very missed:)

Dina said...

I bought a silhouette machine after seeing all of the cute projects you made. Is there any type of tutorial out there for making the homemade labels like you did for the ice cream? I haven't figured out how to do this and can't find any directions other than the basic directions that came with the machine.

Liz said...

I was standing at the check out counter at TJ's and I saw the Dark Chocolate Tahitian Vanilla Caramels that I've been able to pass up many times before, but Jill from Homemade by Jill recommended them, so I couldn't pass them up today.

I'm not sure if I love you or hate you for sharing this delicious tip. Thank goodness I'm pregnant so I have to gain weight!

Love all your creations and recommendations!!

Dina - I haven't seen a tutorial on how to put together graphics on the Silhouette, but that is something I'd be happy to do. I'll try to work up something cute with a tutorial.

Liz - oops, sorry. :)

Jordan - Polkadot Prints said...

What a fun, fun present! I love bits and pieces presents...little bits that make up something fun. Nice one!

Dorienne said...

That silhouette does some many things. I can't wait to get my hands on one. Your SIL is very lucky. What a beautiful gift to give.

April said...

Would love the SIL print and cut file! How can I get it?

Thanks!

Valerie said...

I would love to give a similar gift to my Dad (who is a little obsessed with his ice cream maker!) Do you know where I could find similar pint sized cartons online maybe???

little_red_cookbook said...

I have a SIL I am trying to surprise with the same project. do you have a tepmlate lid size?

Kate said...

Could I ask how you did the scalloped edges on picnik that you use here and also the ones on your blog button? I have been playing with it for hours and can't figure it out! Thanks
