It is still DIY January over here at chez GeorgiaPeachez. That would be "Declutter It Yourself" January.
The laundry/mud room is now pretty and organized but I have a few projects to share with you this month to "fine tune" and organize the clutter.
BUT FIRST, don't forget to check out my Apron Giveaway and if you want to enter you must leave a comment on this post.
I have in my newly redone laundry/mud room a wall of cubbies, just like the cubbies I have in my studio. You can purchase great fabric drawers made just to use with these cubbies. Since I am sharing these cubbies with the family in the laundry room I wanted to make some labels so they would easily be able to find what they need when they need it.
To make labels like these you will need some pretty paper, (I used vintage wallpaper), lightweight cardboard (you can use a cereal box or anything), spray adhesive, clear vinyl (I used the vinyl packaging that the drawer came in) and an eyelet kit.
I made a template first on paper. My shape is oval with scallops and I just drew it freehand.
Cut a piece of decorative paper and cardboard just slightly bigger than your template.
Using the spray adhesive glue the paper and cardboard together.
Trace your template pattern onto the wrong side of the cardboard and cut it out.
Then using a business card, cut a piece of the vinyl about 1/4 inch larger than the card.
Stitch this down to your paper covered piece of cardboard stitching on three sides leaving the top open.
I put the label for the contents of the drawer on the back of the business card and slip it into the vinyl pocket.
Following the instructions with the eyelet kit, attach the label to your fabric drawer placing one eyelet on each horizontal end. This part was a little tricky. I used a phillips screwdriver to punch the holes for the eyelets and scissors to enlarge and trim it before inserting the eyelets.
