Organizing Your Craft Supplies
Hi, Today’s Creative Life friends! Happy New Year! This is Chloe from Boxwood Avenue, and I am so excited to be sharing some good ol’ January organization inspiration with all of you!
This January, I have felt the organization bug more than ever before! After we deconstructed Christmas, I felt a huge urge to rearrange and organize. I found myself making donation piles all throughout the house, getting rid of things that I had been holding onto for years. It felt great to simplify and minimize our home!
The house was easy, real easy! But then, I stepped foot into my craft room. Oh Lord help me! Generally, I am able to keep it clean for about a week, but after a few projects, and late nights, it becomes a total mess all over again. I knew organizing it was going to be a major challenge!
How to Organize Craft Supplies in Boxes
As I began working on the dreaded craft room, I discovered craft supplies that I had forgotten I owned! Since when did I have 67 foam paintbrushes, and why did I choose to put them in the same shoebox as the miniature hot glue sticks? Shoebox after shoebox I opened, and discovered more and more supplies that were dying to be used! If only I had known I had that much gold foil! Then I got to thinking – I should really label these shoeboxes so that I can remember where I put things!
Labels for Organizing
The easy way of doing this would have been to write on the boxes, but since I seem to have ‘crafting’ constantly flowing throughout my veins (and I wanted any excuse to stop cleaning), I opted to use my Cricut Explore Air™ to whip up some vinyl labels. About 30 minutes later, I had successfully tagged each box with the appropriate supplies. Oh does organizing feel great or what!? The best part about this, is that my shoeboxes look like designer storage boxes now!
Of course, you can label your boxes any way you’d like, but if you have a Cricut, go for it!
I used the Didot font and gold vinyl. What will you choose? Let me know on Instagram or Twitter! I’d love to see photos!

Chloe is incredibly talented! These boxes are beautiful!
Isn’t she? I just love everything she does!
I need to organize my craft room too. It is BAD! I love the gold on your boxes, I need to do that for sure.
Mine is bad too! Getting there… but much work ahead!

Those storage containers look great and are so easy to make. I’m going to buy some this weekend. Thanks for the tips.
You’re welcome! They were SO easy! I also love wrapping tin cans in decorative paper for quick organizing containers. I posted some really cute plaid covered cans!
Wow. Classy looking labeling! Have to agree, keeping similar things together and labeling are the bedrock of all organizing. Something I read once in a book on organizing office files is that having neatly typed labels on your files encourages you to keep things organized. It makes it easy to find files, and then also to find where to put things back. These gorgeous labels you’ve created will have that same effect of encouraging you to stick to your organizational system. Worth the effort.
It’s true! It just looks so nice that you’re motivated to keep it up!
