Bathroom Organization | Cricut Joy Labels. Learn how to easily create labels to organize your bathroom using Smart Vinyl and Smart Labels.
Today, I am going to share how I used my Cricut Joy machine, Smart Vinyl, and Smart Labels to easily get my bathroom organized. You can create labels in just minutes. And since the Cricut Joy is so small, you can take it to wherever you are organizing – even the bathroom!
When we moved into our new home, I used bins I had on hand to organize the space and it worked for a while. But this cabinet is much bigger than our old one, so the small bins and extra space quickly added up to a big mess!

I used to begin all organizing projects by pulling EVERYTHING out of the space. This can be a good approach if you are able to finish it all in one day. But, if you only have little pockets of time, it is best to work one shelf or drawer at a time.
This cabinet was a total disaster!
I drew out a sketch on a piece of paper and measured everything. Since the shelves were much bigger than my current Dollar Tree bins, things were not getting put away properly. I wanted to make sure the new containers I purchased would make the best use of the space.
Once my bins arrived, I started organizing at the top and worked my way down. As I went, I threw out anything that was expired or broken. I removed items from the bulk packaging to make more space.
If I had a lot of smaller items I put them all together in a smaller container or bag, inside the larger bin.
Once I had everything sorted and put back in the bins, it was time to make labels.
For the clear containers this can seem unnecessary, but since many of the bottles look similar, it helps my family know where to return things when they are done.
How to Make Bathroom Labels with Cricut Joy
Open Cricut Design Space and start a new project. Click Images in the Design Panel. Then search Image Sets for Labels. You will find lots of pre-made label options to use with either vinyl or the Smart Label and pens.
If you want to use the labels I designed, click here. I used the Cricut font Monday for all of the labels. Double-check the size of your containers before using these labels to be sure they will fit.

Once you have your labels created, click Make It. On the mat preview page you can select how you will load your material. Since we are working with Smart Vinyl and Smart Labels, select Without Mat.
My Smart Label was originally over 19″ long. So, before writing and cutting, I moved the labels on the mat to make better use of the material.
You do this by dragging your labels where you want them on the mat. Turn the smaller labels on the side and place them next to the hexagon labels. Click Continue.
Choose the material from the menu. For this project, the first material is Smart Label Writable Vinyl, and the second is Smart Vinyl – Permanent.
Design Space will tell you to load the pen first.
Then, load the Smart Label Vinyl into the machine. Click Go. Load the fine point blade when the Cricut Joy is done writing, and again click Go.
After the machine cuts the labels, click Unload.
Apply Labels to Containers
Attach the metal labels through the holes in the basket using brass fasteners. I didn’t have bronze fasteners on hand, so I used a little bit of gold paint to make the black look more like the label holder metal.
For each of the label holders, I cut out strips of 2 1/2″ x 1″ white cardstock. I placed the label I created with the Cricut on the cardstock.
You could also just cut around the edge of the label on the carrier sheet and place that inside the label holder.
Our band-aids, bandages, and first aid supplies were the biggest mess. I found a three-drawer storage container that I thought would work great to hold a lot of supplies.
I used small bins I got at Dollar Tree to separate band-aids and supplies inside the drawers.
Cut out the Smart Vinyl using the Cricut Joy. Weed the excess vinyl and cut the labels apart.
Use transfer tape to transfer the vinyl to the outside of the drawers.
For the bottom shelf, I found black fabric bins. They hold things like our travel bags, heating pad, and other miscellaneous items. These items may change so I didn’t create any labels for them.
Now, everything is organized. With the labels I made, it should stay that way more easily moving forward. And since everyone loves a good before and after, you can see that below.
