These Laundry Room Organization Labels are a super easy to way to make your laundry room more functional, as well as cute! I’m sharing tutorials for a Laundry Sorter and Laundry Containers!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen the announcement that we’re moving back to Southern Utah! Exciting, right? My head is already busy, going room to room planning all the fun projects, decor and organizing that I’m going to want to do. One of the rooms I’m most excited to organize is my Laundry Room. Right now my laundry room is a bit of a hole. It’s on the smaller side, has no cabinets and is very dark. So, I’ve never been super motivated to do much to it. But, my new laundry is a lighter colored, bigger and has a sink, drawers and cabinets in it! So, I’m really excited to get it decorated and organized!
I decided to get a jump start on a few projects for it and last week I made some fun organizing containers and a laundry sorter with my Cricut Maker and wanted to share them with you today!
LAUNDRY ROOM LABELS
- Organizing Bins — I used this Organizing Tote and Glass Jars!
- Cricut Maker
- Standard Mat
- Premium Permanent Brushed Vinyl – I am obsessed with the Brushed Vinyl look. But, you can use any Premium Vinyl!
- Transfer Tape
- Essential Tool Kit
- Laundry Room Labels Design Space File
Open the Laundry Room Labels Design Space File.
I’ve added a lot of options for labels that cold be used in the laundry room. Just go through them and hide the words(layers) that you don’t want to use. You can hide the layers by clicking the eye picture on the right side of the layer.
I wanted all my labels to be cut from the same color and type of vinyl, so I left them all black. If you’re wanting different colors of vinyl, then go ahead and change any of the words colors! You’ll also want to measure your containers and resize the words to fit the containers they’re going to go on!
Once you’ve got the file ready to cut, hit ‘MAKE IT’ in the top right hand corner.
At this time, preview the mat(s) and make sure the spacing of all the words is good. Generally Design Space squishes the words closer together than I prefer. So, I manually move them around. I like to make sure that there is room to cut around each word.
Once that mats look good, hit ‘CONTINUE’.
Next, choose your machine from the drop down menu and select your material.
Again, I chose to use the Premium Permanent Brushed Vinyl for my labels. Because these labels will be indoors, feel free to use any vinyl — removable would work just fine! Load the vinyl on a Standard Mat, with your vinyl in the top left hand corner.
After you designs are cut, then go ahead and weed out the excess vinyl.
Add transfer tape to your designs. Use the scraper tool from your Essential Tool Kit to make sure the vinyl is adhered to the transfer tape good.
Then peel the backing off and place the design on your container. I like to use my fingers to push the design onto the container good. Slowly remove the transfer tape, making sure the vinyl is sticking good to the container.
And that’s it!
Now onto the laundry sorter!
If you’ve never worked with Iron On Vinyl, then I suggest reading my posts — Tips for Using Iron On Vinyl and Everything You Need to Know about the EasyPress 2.
- Laundry Sorter
- Cricut Maker
- 12″x24″ Standard Mat
- Everyday Iron On — I used White.
- EasyPress 2 — I used the 12″x10″ one.
- 20″x16″ EasyPress Mat
- Essential Tool Kit
- Laundry Sorter Design Space File
Laundry Basket Organizer
Start by opening up the Laundry Sorter Design Space File.
At this time you’ll want to make any changes to the Design Space file. You can change the words, font, color and/or size! Make sure you measure the size of the front of your Laundry Sorter and if needed, resize them!
Once you’re done, hit ‘MAKE IT’ in the top right hand corner.
Then go ahead and preview the mats. For this project, you’re cutting large Iron On decals, so you’ll need to cut the Iron On on the 12″x24″ mats. For my decals, I was able to fit 3 on the first mat and that left 1 for the 2nd mat.
Also, remember when cutting Iron On you ALWAYS need to mirror the image. You’ll need to do this with both mats.
Once you preview and mirror the mat, hit ‘CONTINUE’. Then choose your machine from the dropdown menu and select Iron On from the materials list.
Prepare your mat, by putting the Everyday Iron On on the 12×24 Standard Grip Mat. Make sure you put the shiny side down on the mat!
Load the mat and then press the flashing ‘C’ Button to start the cutting!
Once everything is cut, then use scissors to cut around the different words. Then weed out the excess vinyl around your words with a weeding tool.
Once all the words are weeded, then it’s time to Iron them onto the laundry baskets!
I always start by pulling up the EasyPress Interactive Heat Settings Guide. Put in the type of Iron On you’re using and the type of material that you’ll be Ironing the Iron On onto and it will tell you the heat settings.
Place your design and measure around it to make sure it’s centered! I chose to use my 6″x7″ EasyPress 2 for this project, because it fit the narrow area that the words were going on. So, I had to press down the word in three separate presses.
The guide did state the do a warm peel, but I found that a cold peel worked so much better.
All and all I think it turned out pretty great and I’m excited to get it in my new laundry room!
