DIY Home organizing labels *Mother's Day gift idea* (Glue Dots Project)

Hi there friends. Mother's day is just around the corner and if you are looking for a practical gift that has a DIY flair, please check out my project below. 

Give the organizing mom in your life some cute and useful container labels. The best part of this gift is that she can write whatever she wants on the chalkboard labels and erase it easily too. Everything came together efficiently and with little mess because I used some Glue Dots® adhesive. 

DIY Home organizing labels
Designed by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes
Level: Intermediate
Size:  4 ¼ x 3” (with ribbon); 2 1/3 x 3” (without ribbon)

        Cardboard- (thin) Source Unknown
        Pattern papers- Let’s Polka in the Meadow, 6x6 paper pad, Lawn Fawn
        Ribbon - Source Unknown
        Wood shapes- Woodsies, Loew-Cornell

        Ultra Thin, Glue Dots®
        Chalkboard Paint- Americana, Deco Art
        Label die- Labels Eight, Nestabilities, Spellbinders
        Manual die cut machine- Cuttlebug, Provo Craft
        Chalk- Crayola

1.       Paint the wood shapes with chalkboard paint. Make sure to pain the sides as well. Set aside to dry.
2.       Die cut the think cardboard and the pattern papers with the desired size of label die. I used the fourth from the biggest size. Make as many as you need/want.
3.       Adhere a piece of paper over the cardboard using some Ultra Thin, Glue Dots® adhesive. Adding the cardboard to the paper makes this label sturdy for everyday use.
4.       Cut a piece of ribbon about 8” long. Add the ribbon loop to the back side of each label using some Advanced Strength, Glue Dots® adhesive.
5.       Adhere the chalkboard wood shape in the center of the labels with some more Advanced Strength, Glue Dots® adhesive.

Option: You can skip the ribbon and add Advanced Strength, Glue Dots® adhesive to the back to adhere to a box or basket.

 I hope this has inspired you to create something personal for the mother or mothers in your life.

Till next time,
