Clear Organization Bin Labels

Project Description: I love having clear bins so I can see the contents inside – but labels block my view, so I made clear labels using craft plastic and vinyl.

Designed by: Natasha Dzurny

Difficulty: Easy


Steps to Make This:

  1. First, measure the slot of your bins. The clear bins used for this project are from Uline and are 4 inches wide by 1.75 inches tall. There are many brands of bins, so be sure to measure your own!
  2. Use a straight edge and blade to cut rectangles out of a sheet of Grafix Clear Dura-Lar Film matching the measurements of the bin.
  3. To design your label, choose a font, and use a font size that leaves a margin of about .5 inches from the edge of the rectangles. Cut your design out with a Cricut Machine or your choice of craft cutting machine to cut the Vinyl in a color of your choice.
  4. Next, cut a piece of transfer tape the same size as your rectangle. If the transfer tape doesn’t have markings, you could use a permanent marker to mark the center to make it easier to align.
  5. Weed all of the letters using your weeding tool.
  6. Then use the transfer tape to transfer the letters to the Clear Dura-Lar Film, aligning the transfer tape with the edges of the clear rectangle.
  7. Optional: Cut triangles or other designs from Grafix Assorted Colorful Clear-Lay Film. You could use this for decoration or to color-code your bins, and still see through the labels!
  8. Insert the label into the slot in the bin. If you added the colored shapes, place them behind the label. Enjoy your new organized bins!
