Let's get organised!

Ok how many of us have those pretty nifty 12x12 acrylic storage boxes, pretty much all of us I bet.  I love them but when it comes to actually labeling them its a bit of a pain.  I'm the first to admit that I have organisational OCD but I left this job on the long finger and today I decided to sort it out.  On my PC using publisher I made labels and incorporated thumnails of the stack front covers and the company logo's so that at a glance I can find what I'm looking for. 

Now for the tricky bit of getting them to stick to the acrylic box, This is where my Xyron 5" creative station came in very handy. Using the Laminate/Permanent adhesive cartridge I ran the label strips through and trimmed with a cutter into strips. 



The lamination gives a tough durable cover to the label and the super sticky adhesive is perfect for it's staying power on the acrylic boxes.  So now I'm super organised and tomorrow's job is labeling more boxes, using my Xyron of course!.
