Those who know me best will tell you that I am obsessed with costume jewelry. My biggest addiction is definitely statement necklaces, but over the years, I've amassed quite the collection of earrings as well. The problem is, I'm not the most organized person. It seems like I can only ever locate one pair of earrings at any given time, which means I wear the same pair pretty much everyday.
To remedy this situation, I decided to take a clear plastic craft organizer that I had on hand and fancy it up with some cute Sharpie lettering. The actual jewelry organization only took about 5 minutes, but between choosing my wording, hand-lettering the template and tracing it onto the box, the fancying-up step took about 6 times as long. Don't worry, if you are interested in trying this simple DIY, I've got you covered!
How I Did It
All I did was fold a piece of paper to fit the size of the little "window" on the lid of the organizer. After I was happy with the way I had drawn the lettering, I opened the lid of the box and centered the paper on top of the clear plastic dividers. I closed the lid and voila! My template was held in place and ready to trace! I started by outlining the shapes of the letters in Sharpie marker before filling in the thicknesses. To make it easy for those of you who want to try this DIY on your own, I am offering the template I made as a FREE printable at the bottom of this post!
And to save you even more time, I have the exact same box I used, available to purchase in my brand-spanking-new Resource Shop! The plan is that as I post new tutorials and DIY projects, the exact tools and products I used will be added to my Resource Shop. All the things you need to try these projects on your own can be delivered right to your door! You won't have to worry about finding time to shop or wasting time driving back and forth between craft stores in search of the right item --I'll do all that for you ;) And since I'm going through Amazon, you know you'll be getting some of the lowest prices out there.
