Baby Clothing Labels

With two little girls at home, we have a lot of clothes and a lot of laundry being done. I needed a better way to organize these clothes and I needed a labeling system to help everyone know what goes where. I decided to make a fun project of this, and made some whimsical tags to use for this purpose.For the items of clothing used frequently- like onesies, pajamas etc., I used wicker baskets in the rack beneath the changing table. I made some quick tags for these, using paper crafting supplies- some stamps, punches and cardstock.

I needed a better way to organize these clothes and I needed a labeling system to help everyone know what goes where. I decided to make a fun project of this, and made some whimsical tags to use for this purpose.For the items of clothing used frequently- like onesies, pajamas etc., I used wicker baskets in the rack beneath the changing table. I made some quick tags for these, using paper crafting supplies- some stamps, punches and cardstock.

step1

I stamped some animal images onto the cardstock and colored them with color pencils. I then added some liquid medium (similar to glossy accents) and let them dry.

 

step2

I cut out my tags from green cardstock to measure 2.5 by 4 inches and layered a border punched cream cardstock onto them. Layered some patterned papers and added my animal images.

step3

I also punched a hole on the top edge of the tag.

step4

I tied each of these tags onto a wicker basket using some ribbons. Simple and pretty.

step5

My daughter is just two years old, but loves to help me fold and put away clothing. So I thought these animal images would be fun for her. Since she is too young to read what is written on these tags, I can now tell her to put that pj in the elephant basket.

step6

For the not so everyday items of clothing, I used hangers and sorted them by size. To make tags to separate the sizes, I cut a 12 by 12 inch cardstock into 4 equal strips and folded them in half. I punched an offset circle and adhered the folded cardstock shut for a strong thick tag.

step7

I added numbers using a stencil and pen onto the center of each tag.

step8

I also used stickers to write the size above the circles. Make sure you give a cut in the circle so that you can slide these tags over the rod in the cupboard.

step9

This way you can now see above the rod what size clothes hang where.
