I found this great paper organizer at Home Goods and loved the colour right away. It was a pretty great deal at $19.99 and goes really well with the fun wall hanging that I had already picked up!
Each paper tray has a small slot for a label that I knew they would look great with a chalkboard finish.
To make the labels, I simply cut the out a rectangle, added a Martha Stewart Chalkboard label and then trimmed the edges.
It was easy to divide my cardstock collection into three categories (white/ivory, colour, and pattern). I wanted to make sure that the paper would sit nicely in the tray so I covered three pieces of cardboard with a patterned paper and placed each board at the front of the three trays. The cardstock is easy to access and will no longer get creased and damaged in the bin I used to keep it in.
This little project makes me so happy! I absolutely love the way it looks! I know I'm not the only one who gets this giddy over organizing craft supplies... how do you get organized in the craft department?
