It’s Bree, and I’m back to share a quick organizing tip. Do you remember my scrap space videos? All of my kraft color boxes were new, and I had not yet labeled them. So I thought we could label them together.
Start with a Strong Base. I used the Clip It Up Tabs & Labels, that came with my Clip it Ups. These are very sturdy and just the perfect size. But rather than altering them and hanging them on my bases, I decided that they would make fabulous labels for these boxes.
To help save a little bit of money, and keep a little out of our landfills.... consider using the packaging of your favorite paper packs. Use the front page as your patterned paper. I cut this page into 4”x2” pieces.
Make your labels VERY clear, and easy to read. Choose a font and font size that you can see clearly from a distance away. Or print in your best handwriting
I printed my labels on regular paper, and matted them with patterned paper scraps.
Create your labels with a similar color scheme or theme. The labels are to help you find things easy and fast, if you make your labels to overwhelming, you won’t be able to find what your looking for as effectively. By using the same paper line, my labels looked uniform and neat.
And here is the outcome. The labels are easy to read, and are very clean and simple. Finding things in my storage boxes is much easier and my boxes look cute too.
Using storage boxes is a great idea to store those chunky items and things you don’t use on a regular basis, and of course those things that just won’t fit on your clip it up.
