friday craft day: simple organizing projects

I have a bit of an obsession with labels and I’m totally loving these cuties from Crystal Wilkerson right now! I had fun putting them to good use this week with a couple of simple organizing projects. We needed an inexpensive solution to all the paper clutter around here so I made one of these for each of the kids in my handy dandy photoshop.
I printed them out and then attached each one to a magnetic binder clip and voila!
A place to keep all the kids artwork, notes from school and other miscellaneous papers that seem to have taken over my kitchen counter since school started. :)
I also used Crystal’s cute labels to fancy up this tired, old composition book. To create section dividers I copied one of the labels from the sheet and pasted it onto a blank document. Next, I rotated the document 180 degrees, pasted the same label again and lined it up back to back with the first one, to create something that looked like this:
  
I added some text to label each one, printed, cut them out and then attached them to my notebook. All I did was fold them in half and staple to each page. I have high hopes that this little notebook will help keep our family a little bit more organized this school year!
