Organization for DIY Supplies

     

      Baskets, bins, and boxes are just three of many ways you can organize all of your DIY supplies. Keeping your items organized can help you find what you need quicker and can make your space easier to work around. Here are 9 ideas for organizing your DIY supplies!

CD/Document Boxes – CD and document boxes are perfect for your small and flat finished projects. Boxes also work well for various supplies used in your projects.

Take-Out Containers – Food containers can become useful organizers for small items. Pringles cans work well for long, skinny items and Altoids tins can be used for sewing supplies. Take-out boxes work in similar ways.

Knit Bin – Why not put your knitting supplies in a knit bin? Place your yarn, needles, and projects all in this one bin.

Silver File Box – File boxes can be used for more than just flat files. You can take out the tracking systems on most boxes and fill the box with whatever you’d like.

Tubes – A tube organizer can be found in the bathroom organization section at The Container Store. However, it also works as a neat organizer for markers, pencils, pens, and more.

Cork Bottle & Rubber Band Ball – A simple cork bottle and a rubber band ball are two ways to organize small useful items. Rubber band balls can be easily made – like this example.

Plastic/Metal Bins – Large plastic and metal bins help organize larger supplies and project concepts. Larger bins with dividers can be used for a large amount of small items as well.

Paint Bucket – Place your paint supplies and more in a paint bucket! A clear bucket is even better to help you see all of the supplies you have before you start a new project.

Happle – Happy Apple Container – This fun Happle container is another storage option that can be found at The Container Store. Oddly shaped supplies and pieces of projects can easily fit in this container.

I hope this post gave you some ideas to help you organize your DIY Supplies! Thanks for reading!

AllPapers

     Trying to find the right binder for class can be difficult if you have multiple binders that are the same color. To solve that problem, you can create a binder cover that will help you sort. This DIY project contains five binder cover ideas that you can use to add some color and pop to your binders.

What You’ll Need

Here are 5 DIY Binder Covers!

Camera

     The camera binder cover is one nifty option, especially for a journalism/photography class. Print out a triangle on card stock and wrap silver washi tape along the edges. Adhere the letters to the triangle and glue the finished triangle to the scrapbook paper.

Dot

     Dots are a peppy way to add some small bursts of color to your binder. Add text by using gold adhesive letters on a strip of black card stock. Wrap gold washi tape along the edges of the cover finish off the edges.

Triangle

TrianglesFinal

     This triangle cover is a vibrant way to make a cover for your binders. Printing out the text for this cover saves time and gives you the option to pick from wide variety of fonts. Using silver washi tape around the text completes the look.

Plus

PlusFinal

     A plus cover is a simplistic cover that takes little time to make. Layered card stock and black adhesive letters keep the look of this cover clean. This plus pattern to me seems like a worthy candidate for a math/science class, but could be used for any class you have.

Cork

     This cork binder cover provides several boxes of information in an organized way. Details like the location and time of your class can be added along with major deadlines for projects in the class. The whiteboard and chalkboard section could be used to work on problems or doodle during a long lecture.

     Hopefully these binder covers offer you some inspiration for your own binders. If you do make a cover, use #mattebinder to show off your design!
