Closet Fun

I wanted to share a quick little craft project, if you can call it that, I used in Elaine and the new baby's closet.  I haven't had much time to be creative and this at least let me use some of my crafty tools.  I wanted a way to sort Levi's clothes that would make them easy to find and easy to see what he has in each size, since most of his wardrobe has been handed down to him.  So I made little tags to hang from the closet bar to separate each size.  I am hoping this also helps others find things quickly that will be helping out with things when the baby is born.  Here is what I did:
  First I gathered the materials: index cards, circle punch, paper trimmers, adhesive, scissors, scrap paper in chosen colors, and a matching pen/marker.
Next I punched a medium/large circle in the top of each card.  Just make sure your circle will fit around the closet bar the clothes/tags will be hanging from.  Also make sure that the circle isn't so close to the edge that it will rip easily as it slides over the bar.
Then I used the scap paper to decorate the tags, leaving just enough room between the circle punch and the paper to label the tag with the size.  You will also need to cut a straight line from the edge of the card to circle to give you a spot to slide it over the closet bar.
 Here is the finished product before I put them in the closet.  I plan to also make some for Elaine's side too.  Her's will most likely be labeled play and dress rather then by size.  This will help Daddy from putting her in a church dress to go to the zoo.  He would have her dressed as a princess for all occasions.  
Today I am linking to:


  1. Those are so cute! What a great idea. I've seen things similar to these in catalogs, but they cost a fortune. I would love to feature these tomorrow. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday.

  2. I love your tutorial!! Thanks for Sharing it! I guess I really need to get a large 2" round hole punch - it's probably something that would solve a lot of my diy complications :)

  3. I pinned your Closet Fun post to my pin board with the following caption: Katie over at Treelane Tales has a great tutorial on how she created the #closet #label #dividers I love. It's just such a clean look.
