The January organizing and decluttering bug bit me hard this year. How about you? I’ve organized several spaces in our home recently and it’s no secret that I love to use pretty DIY labels as the finishing touch to my organizing projects.

Although fancy labels and pretty storage bins are absolutely not required for getting organized, they are a lot like sprinkles on a cake – totally not necessary but no one will argue with how fun and pretty they are. Pretty labels make me weak in the knees.

Today I’m sharing exactly how I create custom DIY labels for my projects using adhesive vinyl and my Cricut Maker cutting machine. And guess what? You can create these labels in any size, color and font you’d like which means the labeling possibilities are virtually endless!

Pretty DIY Label Ideas

I’ve created my own DIY vinyl labels for a variety of projects in our home and just keep coming up with more reasons to make more!

I created these sweet labels for the storage bins in the nursery:


And I recently shared this glimpse of the labels I made for the organizers under our bathroom sink:

I also used them to label the soap dispensers by our kitchen sink:

Check out this pretty & organized kitchen sink! Love the idea of a sink-side tray for organizing dishwashing supplies & those DIY soap dispensers are cute.

And today I’m showing you a sneak peek at how I recently made labels for storage totes filled with outgrown baby clothes. I’ll be sharing more details about organizing kids clothing in another blog post later this week, so watch for that!


How To Make Vinyl Labels With The Cricut Maker

Watch this detailed video tutorial to see every single step of making these DIY labels. This video will show you how I created vinyl labels for large storage totes, but you can use the same method to label just about anything! There’s even iron-on vinyl if you want to label fabric items.

Label Supply List

If you share my love for all things labeling and organizing, you’ll absolutely love creating custom labels with the Cricut Maker cutting machine. You can essentially create labels of any size and color, and it’s really easy to customize the design by choosing your favorite font.
And the Cricut Maker can do so much more than labels! It’s the most powerful, most versatile cutting machine from Cricut and it cuts, writes, and scores hundreds of materials–from delicate fabrics and papers to thick leather and balsa wood–in any pattern or image you want. It’s a crafter’s dream tool!
It feels so good to have a stack of pretty labeled storage totes filled with baby things stacked in our basement. They are out of the way and it will be a breeze to locate everything when we go looking for it down the road. More to come on organizing baby clothing in another video tutorial later this week!
