Crafty Organizing

I just love when I can combine my crafting and organizing into one project. I have been accumulating a lot of extra Cricut cuts and putting them in a boring old envelope. So when Crafty Organizing was chosen for the theme this week at SweetSassyDiva , I decided to make something fun, useful and decorative to store them in.

 I started by making the inside pocket pages using a piece of 12 x 12 " paper. Score and fold as shown on the photos.

I used my Bind It All to put this book together.

The cover is just a light weight chipboard covered with black card stock.

I used Cricut Craft Room to size and cut out the image and phrase -  from Cricut Everyday sized at 3".

I wanted to be able sort the cuts by theme, so I cut out tabs from From My Kitchen to attach to each page.

I wrote on the labels then attached with a strong adhesive.

And the finished book... with a few embellishments.

Cartridges used:

Cricut Everyday
From My Kitchen

This was a fun project make and can be changed up in lots of ways to fit other needs. Please come back this week and see some more great crafty organizing projects!

  1. This is such a great idea Mindy!! I love how you made your pockets and tabs, perfect for keeping extra cuts that we don't use for a project! I am thinking that I'm going to have to lift this wonderful organizing idea!!
