Fun Earring Organiser!

Hey Everyone,


Almost a month is gone. I guess I shouldn't get too happy about returning to my blog every time coz whenever I do that, blogging gets jinxed and I am not able to post at all..Not that I don't do crafting...I do and last month did quite a lot (~as per my speed and patience :P~) but have no idea what kept me from posting..Anyways...I'll straight get to the point and that is I made a quick and efficient earrings organizer..no rocket science...just something to help me find my earrings properly. The way my earrings were stored was a nightmare..Wanna see how it looked????


Have a look
Looks hideous!! Ain't it??
This picture was taken by my dearest hubby when while selecting a matching pair for my dress I accidently dropped the box on the floor and when I picked everything up (we all know how it is while you have to get ready, u r running late and your box of accessories falls on the floor!!!!) it was a nice entangled mess..
Hubby had quite a lot of fun mocking at the woman inefficiency of taking time to get ready coupled with such disasters and this picture was meant to be that mock reminder...


However, I didn't allow him much amusement as the very same evening I came up with this earrings organiser and he is quite happy that I could shut him up for this at least...:D :D :D


So over to the organiser..I save the cereal box cardboard by cutting the front and back biggest portion and discard the rest. I had few such lying with me..
I cut them off neatly by trimming off uneven edges and till I was left with neat rectangles. After that, I simply added these printed tapes on the border I had lying with me..I bought them in a stationery fair for really cheap...I guess a dollar or so for the whole set of 10 tapes...:D

After taping the borders, it looked nice, I didnt use a background paper or so as I wanted to keep the background plain so that my earrings stand out but you are free to decorate it as much as you like..I did't decorate either coz my earrings are embellishments in themselves.. lol..
Anyways, after reaching this step, I simply marked some lines with a ruler and made some holes using a compass and cork board and started placing my earrings as per their size...
After placing all the earrings, I just added small balls of blue tack at the back and placed them on a wall (blue tack doesn't spoil walls, so that's a bonus!!) next to my dressing table and its been more than a month and I have never had problems finding my earrings again..Plus it serves as quite a pretty wall art too...:D


I had fun making this, you can of course experiment in n number of ways and make sure your earrings are never lost or entangled again...:D


Let me know how it looks...Love all

    1. Dear Rory,

      Thank you for your comment. I did use blue tac to stick it on the wall. :)
      Inside of a cabinet sounds great too..and yes your daughter can definitely make this..it is indeed one of the simplest thing one can make..i made it in under 10 minutes...just adult supervision is needed while poking holes for earrings..
