You know I love organization. And, now that little Kiddo is here, it’s time to flex some organizing muscle. Everyone has been so generous with gifts and hand-me-downs, but I’m not letting them pile up in a corner. No no… time to make a place for everything and everything in its place as they say. Enter the closet Baby Clothes Dividers…
Who knew it would be a challenge to know what fits baby at any given time. Or, that reaching into a drawer and pulling out something the wrong size could be so disappointing.
All you need:
- thin cardboard (think cereal or gift box)
- scrapbooking paper (in the patterns of your choice)
- straight edge
- circular container (small baby formula size worked great)
- spray glue
For each divider, you will take one sheet of cardboard, and 2 sheets of scrapbooking paper. Apply spray glue to the front and back of the cardboard, and attach your scrapbooking paper to each side with the pattern facing out.
Next, take your circular container and trace two circles overlapping, and use your straight edge to connect the sides of the circles to achieve an oblong sort of shape. (I’ve shown it here on plain cardboard so you can see it a little better).
Use your scissors to cut out your shapes.
Next, take another circular shape (this can be anything, but remember it needs to be slightly larger than the circumference of your closet clothing bar), and trace it out on your divider, in the top centre.
Cut on an angle (consistently for each divider), into your centre circle, and continue cutting around the circle until it is completely punched out.
All that’s left to do is label each divider with the clothing size.
And, there you have it. Everything in its place. It is a wonderful thing.
