Anybody Organized Challenged? Deflecto to the Rescue!

Spring is here!  Time to get organized!

I am building my storage over time.  Your personal storage can be built around your shelving or attached to the wall.  There are brackets to hang the multi-bin storage to give you more space.  My studio is full to the brim and it will take me time to get everything under control!  I love my Deflecto storage for getting my supplies organized!

For getting your Spring cleaning started you will need:
  • Deflecto Interlocking Multi-Bin Storage Organizer:  5 Bin Unit #20503CR; 6 Bin Unit #20603CR
  • Deflecto Sign Tags with chalk pen #899112RT
  • Washi Tape:  black and white, 1" wide
  • Scissors    


1.  Unwrap the interlocking bins.  Follow the instructions and attach one bin to the other.

2.  Use a white label that comes with the bins to create the black labels that can be written on with the chalk pen.  How?  Measure and mark on one black sign tag the size of tag you will need.  Cut out using a sturdy craft scissor.  Slide into the slot on the front of the bin.  Use the chalk pen to write on the black label that you made.  Repeat for each bin. *Note:  Look closely at the bottom photos and you can see my chalkboard labels.  I haven't written on them yet.

3.  Apply the washi tape in rows to the white top surface of the top unit.  Refer to the photo given below and apply tape to the ridge at the top of each bin.  Fold under or trim excess tape.

4.  Repeat for the bins on the bottom row of storage.  


You can find Deflecto products at Amazon and at most major craft stores.

Happy Organizing!

Spring Flower Box

pencil holder
I don't know about you, but I absolutely love spring. Fresh blooming flowers are just about one of my favorite things. To help bring that spring feeling into my studio I made a box of spring flowers to keep on my desk using a Deflecto Stackable Cube Organizer.  

iron on letters
I used some pattern paper that I had on hand I inked the edges of all the papers using VersaMagic ink. I added some layers on the front piece and used my sewing machine to adhere everything together. I love using my sewing machine on my paper projects! These super cute letters are Joy Iron on Embroidered Letters - they are made for use on fabric but I use them on all sorts of projects including paper.
floral foam
Add some floral foam inside the cube. This piece has been up cycled from a floral arrangement the hubs brought me a few months ago. I am not a hoarder- I swear I am not. 
Fabric  flowers
 To make the flowers I used hot glue to adhere craft sticks to the backs of fabric flowers. I used single layered flowers and put several together to make these. Any flowers you have on hand would work. 
flower bucket
Adhere the papers to all sides of the cube. Cover the floral foam with paper crinkles (the Dollar Tree is a cheap place to pick these up!) and insert your flowers into the foam. Add a ribbon to the cube and you are done! I am also going to decorate some pencils and add to the cube - I think those would be so cute!
Deflecto cube
The Open Stackable Cube Organizer is a fabulous addition to your craft room and can be used for so many things! If you have more than one they clip together on the sides so they are secure on your shelf. Check them out here.  

How to make a Mini Flip Album

This cute little flip album is one of the “make and take” projects taught
in the Deflecto Craft Solutions Booth at Creativation in January.

Mini Flip Album Supplies Used…           
  • Deflecto 4″ x 6″ Clear Craft Frame
  • Scrapbook Paper-Jen Hadfield Collection (Pebbles Inc.)

  • 3/4″ Silver Book Rings
  • 15″ of 5/8″ Antique White Double Face Satin Craft Ribbon
  • Drill
  • 1/8 Inch Hole Punch

How to make a Mini Flip Album:
  1. Make two marks on the top of the frame approximately 3/4″ in on each side.  The marks need to be approx. 1/2″ down from the top of the frame.  (If the holes go down too far the pages won’t flip correctly.)  Drill two holes in the top of the frame with a 3/16″ drill bit.
  2. For the mini album cover…Adhere a 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ scrapbook paper strip onto the top of the corrugated paper leaving a 1/8″ margin on the top.  Adhere the 3″ x 4″ journaling card (cut from the scrapbook paper) onto a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of blue scrapbook paper layer, add those layers onto the corrugated paper and then onto a 4″ x 6″ black cardstock layer.
  3. Using the drilled holes on the craft frame as a guide, mark the cover and the Kraft cardstock pages and punch two holes on the top.
  4. Mark and punch holes into a piece of 4″ x 6″ decorative scrapbook paper and insert into frame.
  5. Attach cover and pages to the craft frame with book rings.

New Sewing Organizer On My Craft Table

Hello everyone!!!  Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today to share how I used Deflecto's Interlocking Single Tilt Bin - 4 Pack on my new sewing table.

Let's Take a Look:

I recently started sewing and I must say I love it. So, you know with a new craft comes a lot of new must have products.  

I've collected all of Dritz buttons, grommets, snaps, tools and much more for the bags I've learned to sew. These small pieces were kept in bags and bins that I can't just see. So, what have I done?  Bought more of the same items because I didn't remember what I already had in my stash.

So this amazing Interlocking Single Tilt Bin come in super handy for the dilemma I'm facing.

It sits right on top of my new sewing desk. I'm able to see into each bin and see what I have and what I need for my sewing projects.

Let me share why I love these bins:

1. The front is clear.
2. You can stack them on top of each other or side by side.
3. They are portable.
4. You can mount them on the wall or leave them on a desk.
5. The clear bins can be removed for cleaning.
6. Each bin is 4-3/4" W x 5-1/2" H x 4-7/8" D

My new sewing experience will be easier this year.  All of my important supplies all in one place.

So what do you think? How will you organize your crafting supplies? I would love to hear from you.

 Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired here today.
