I am on to my next organizing endeavor! this time tackling labels, tags, stickers and other project life supply goodness as well as my Die-namite dies!
Here are some before photos. First is my labels, tags, stickers, etc… that I use primarily for Project Life.
And here is the drawer I had all of my Dies shoved into.
What a mess! So I headed to Target (I love Target!) and in the office supply section I found these little gems!
Now I am focusing on these small ones but there are lots of different size accordion files… you could use different sizes to organize different supplies. These coupon size files came with a little notepad. I took that out to lessen the bulk.
I created some mini file folders. The first i created using my silhouette…. but I needed to make quite a few, and maybe I was a little lazy, so I just cut the cardstock to size, scored it, folded it, and put a tab on it.
Then I separated everything into like item piles. A couple of tips to mention. You want to remove any unnecessary excess packaging, this adds extra bulk and sometimes will prevent the item from fitting.
You also might want to cut down strips of labels to just the label and not the product name or bar code. If you want to retain the info just write on the back with a slick writer.
For the folders in the sticker, tag, and label files I created one in each to put the items that were loose in, I didn’t want them falling in between the divided sections
For the die cut file, I made an individual file folder for each die, also when I use the die I cut a couple of extra shapes and put it in with the die, that way if I just want to grab a cut and not pull out my machine i have it right on hand.
And here is some end result photos. I really am enjoying this system, I love that everything is right at my fingertips. For now I am storing the files in the black box I picked up at target seen in the photo, but as I reorganize my IKEA Raskog, I might transfer them over.
I hope this provided you with some organization inspiration. I have a pretty big project I am working on next and I can’t wait to share with you all SOON!
Have a fabulous weekend!
