Binders were on the school supply list for my girls this year, and I thought it would be fun to “cutesy” them up a little bit before the first day of school.  It took just a few minutes to change a plain binder into an adorable and practical one, by adding chalkboard binder labels!

This was SO SO simple!

-I cut a piece of polka dot scrapbook paper down to fit the binder, and slid it into the clear pocket.

-I used my Silhouette to cut out cute labels from chalkboard vinyl and placed it on the front of the binder.  (You could also do this on the spine, to be seen from the side as well.)

-If you don’t have a Silhouette, you could also tape off a section on the front of the binder using painters tape, then apply a chalkboard craft paint with a foam brush and let dry.  You could also use a stencil (either cut out with a Silhouette or purchased) of a fancier label, instead of the painters tape, and still use the craft paint.

Seriously, that’s it!

My girls binders’ will have a lot of subjects in one, so I’m going to write their names on their labels.  If you have a child with several binders, this is a fun way to label them with the different subjects, and help keep them organized! You could also add the chalkboard paint/vinyl to the spine, so that it could be seen from the side, like in a locker or on a shelf.

This doesn’t have to be just for back to school, though.  Whether you’re using a binder for recipes, information, home & family, work, school, in the classroom, as a journal, or other organization, these simple labels are a charming addition that’s EASY to change whenever you need to!
