I scored some really cool metal boxes on clearance at Michaels the other day! They're a great size for storage and I can imagine lots of places in my house that I can use them. Since I am not quite sure how I will use them, I wanted to make a label for the boxes that was cute but that I can also discard or change out later as my plans for the boxes change. How to make it all happen? With the Sizzix eclips2, which I received from Sizzix as a member of their design team, I created removable labels for these boxes from paper.
There's a trend of “knock out” style letters and I thought this would look really cool on the boxes. I used the eCal software for the Sizzix eclips2 to make the words and label bases. Each base is essentially a folded card, with the label cut into the paper. This is a great way to use pretty paper and put it on display and to label decorative boxes without damaging them. I'm always changing my mind on how and where to use things so I can definitely see myself changing out these labels in a few months when I decide to use these boxes elsewhere in the house. Here's how to make these paper DIY removable labels:
I love how fun these labels are and because they slip over the side of the box, I can change them out and remove them any time. I hope this project inspires you to find some crafty and creative organizing solutions for your home.
