I bought these Iris containers to help me corral some craft supplies. I love them because they fit on my standard bookshelf on their front or side. I’m keeping them sideways to maximize bookshelf space. Goodness knows I need it! LOL! I’m using this one to hold my Close to My Heart Cricut cartridges, stamps and chipboard so I created some signage for it using vinyl.
Need vinyl? I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.
I used the Cricut Craft Room along with the Artbooking Cricut cartridge (available through CTMH) to create my words. The heart is part of Artbooking too. Ignore the 50 states in the photo, this is all from Artbooking.
I sent my creation to my Cricut and cut it out using red Cricut vinyl.
I like to keep the backing on the mat and work from there to weed my vinyl.

I covered the words with transfer tape. That will help me move it from the backing to the container.
Off to the container we go! I have blue glittery nails this week. LOL!
I’m using the Open Top File Box 13x5x9 by Iris.
YAY! Not only does it hold everything I needed it to hold but I can tell exactly what’s in it from a distance thanks to that vinyl lettering! Woo hoo!
