I’ve been getting the big parts of my sewing room together and it’s time to focus on the micro-organizing! I love bins and jars to hold little sewing materials and I really love it when they are labeled! These craft room labels will get your organization started and they are so easy to make!
In this post I’ll show you how to use your cutting machine to cut out the SVG designs in vinyl and apply them to whatever surface you are using – boxes, jars, plastic bins etc.
When I set up my DreamBox, I fell in love with the clear totes and drawers for storing things. The labels are mostly for looks since I can see everything. They do help me organize materials since somethings look the same from the outside, like trims and bias tape and some of the totes have a few different items.

Instructions for Craft Room Labels
Let’s get started! Upload the files to Design Space. They are broken down so each will fit on a 12″ by 12″ canvas, but you can ungroup the words and rearrange them. Just be sure to hit ATTACH before cutting.
Cut them out and weed.
Use transfer tape (I like Cricut brand best) to get the sticky part of the vinyl ready for your surface. Peel off the white backing.
Center your vinyl and press down.
Then peel the transfer tape off!
And you’re done! Repeat for all your bins and totes!
