Labels for My Labels!

After posting this picture on instagram and twitter, a freind of mine mentioned…”you have labels for your labels!” Ha ha!! I didn’t even notice. But, yes as I organized the closet acting as my office, I reserved a whole drawer for labels.labels1

The washi love continues to beat in my heart. To celebrate my victory of the Done, Done Done Dining Room Closet,  I thought it was the perfect time to get my label on.  Super easy… but here are the pics to prove it.

I simply taped right on top of the inserts that came with the containers. Lucky for me the tape was exactly the same size, so no double taping and cutting had to happen. I used a few tape colors to give contrast to the different colors and patterns of the containers.

They I used a label maker to print out the text. Are you addicted to the label maker like I am? It is a good kind of addiction. Don’t worry.

Some of my old boxes had lost their label inserts so I had to create new ones. Instead of using mailing labels (1 X 2 5/8) with just the sticky back, I simply cut them out backing and all. That made them more sturdy.  You could use card stock too, I just had lotsa these labels.

My Recent Obsession

So, I have tried not to get all worked up about it, but I just.can’t.help.it. I want to scream it from the rooftops…. I LOVE WASHI! Washi tape, that is. I kept coming across bloggers and crafters with this colored tape and finally I was like “what is this stuff and what do you need it for?” I actually googled it, because nobody uses the dictionary any more. Well, except my husband. He actually made his baby name list from a 1970′s dictionary. But anyway…

Washi tape is basically pretty masking tape. It’s not super sticky, so you can use it for decor and crafting and change your mind! You can stick it to pictures and walls and not feel like you have to marry every decision you make with it. And since I like to be able to change my mind to an updated look or a better system, I have quickly become all about the Washi tape.

1 week ago I bought 5 rolls, thanks to the Michael’s 25% off sale. I have already taped many things around the house. The possibilities are endless and I have barely touched my 10 yards per roll. MWAH-ah-ah!! I have used it for…

…and I am just getting started.

There you have it cyber friends, proof of my obsession. I cannot deny it. And, I have been hungering for more. In fact, by the time you read this post I would have rolled myself back to the tape aisle at Michael’s for some more, thanks to this week’s 50% off one item coupon. And, this time I plan to share! Tomorrow. Giveaway. Free stuff. Don’t miss it!
