The Gift of Organization

The Gift of Organization

I’m a little bit of an Organization nut.

I like things to be neat and tidy. (I’m sure I’m not the only one.)

With the holidays around the corner, for that hard to buy person,

why not give the gift of organization.

I like to use the Deflecto Interlocking Single Tilt Bins* all around the house.

I figured everyone else might like them too.

You could give the bins as is or fill them up for the ultimate gift.

Add a bow and your set to go.

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

For the Kids

Craft supplies, playdoh, Legos, the list could go on and on.

In the Bathroom

Hair ties, make up…Clear up the clutter on the bathroom counter.

In the Garage (or Mancave)

for the golfer in my life.

In the Baby’s Room

A great gift for the new mother.

In the Craft Room

The bins are interlocking and stackable.

Great for little storage needs in the garage, craft room, nursery, kitchen, and even the kid’s room.

Wherever you need a little extra storage.

The nice thing about the interlocking single tilt bins* is that you can use just one or use

several.  You can also hang them on the wall or use them with a mounting bar*.

How to make a Christmas Tree in a Bottle Necklace

Christmas Tree in a Bottle Necklace

I got this idea from a project I’d seen made by Tim Holtz.

Of course, I had to find a cheaper way to make it.

I’ve seen small bottles like these at Hobby Lobby with the jewelry supplies.  (I got mine online.)

I picked up small bleached trees at Michael’s.

Very Important…You need to make sure the base of the tree is small enough to fit in the

top of the bottle.

How to make a Christmas Tree in a Bottle Necklace:                                    (*affiliate link)

  1. I used a re-inker, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Reinker, Peeled Paint*, and diluted it with water in Ranger Inkssentials Mini Misters*.  I sprayed each tree generously with the diluted ink.  (it took 3 days until the ink came off of all my fingers)
  2. After the tree was dry I rubbed Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue, Diamond*on the tree.  Allow glitter glue to fully dry on the tree before continuing.
  3. Apply a small bit of Quick Grip All Purpose Permanent Adhesive* on the end of the Q-tip.  Insert Q-tip into bottle and add the glue to the bottom center of the bottle.
  4. Insert tree into bottle and stick onto the glue.
  5. Pour glitter or micro beads into bottle.
  6. Screw loop screw into top of the cork and add necklace.  I added glue around the side of the cork before putting it back into the bottle.

If you’re feeling a little funky…how about making your tree pink or purple?

Do you like Post It Notes?   (I mean really like them.)

Are you one of those people that have post it notes stuck all over the place?

I stick notes in my planner, on my calendar, on the cabinet doors in my office, on the door leading out

to the garage and sometimes even on my lists.  (it can be a problem)

So… it should come to no surprise that this is one of my favorite quick and easy projects to make.
