DIY bling organizers


I have these two paper organizers in our office that don't match. They're both from Ikea but one is wood and the other cardboard, blah blah. I wanted to find a way to unify them so I didn't get annoyed seeing them next to each other in their non-matchy-ness and my prayers were answered when I happened upon this roll of bling at the craft's store. This bling sheet is made of little metallic silver circles in a mesh like fabric that from far away look like rhinestones (which I love). It's usually kept in the wedding section at the craft store but you can also buy it online here for around $11. For more fun label ideas see DIY Glitter Labels.

This project is an inexpensive and easy way to add some glam to your organizers. I love the result!...but I still hate paying bills.

  1. Measure your bling sheet to the face of your organizer and cut it to size using scissors.
  2. Hot glue the piece of bling to the front - careful, the glue likes to seep through the cracks so don't get burned!
  3. Write on your labels using your marker and glue them to the front of each organizer - I loved using the paper hang tags with the thread still attached.
  4. Organize and feel glamourous! Shishi, bling bling daaaahhhhling
