In the past, I had found myself without a card on a special occasion, or running to the store at the last minute to grab a card for a baby shower. Trying to be better about being prepared and having to do less last minute errand running, I started collecting greeting cards to keep at home. A few here and there and I had grown a nice collection....
Now I would be prepared, but still not organized. This month, I decided to do something about the stack that lived haphazardly in my studio dresser drawer.
So, I picked up this darling polka dot gift box at Paper Source.
Sure, I could have just tossed the cards inside, but hey, that's not my style. No more digging I told myself. So, I DIY'd some dividers.
I started by making a list of card types to organize/divide.
Then, using brightly colored cardstock paper, I cut the paper down to size and used a label template to create tabs for the tops.
I grabbed one of the tallest envelopes in the stack to act as a guide for height.
A label maker later and I had labeled dividers!
After tossing the dividers into the decorative box, I started sorting out my cards into the correct categories.
All done with smiles!
I popped a label holder on the front and called it completed organized goodness.
Although I can't use the cover since the cards are too tall, I like the look of it with the pretty colors popping up. It will make a great accessory on my studio desk shelves.
How is your home office organizing going? What was the first project that you tackled? This weekend I am tweaking our filing system, more to come next week!
