Let’s hear it for everybody who received a Cricut (or Cricut goodies) under the tree this Christmas! If you are new to Cricut, or are a long time Cricut user but one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get organized then this Origami Craft Cart is going to kick your new year off right. Let’s get organized!
The cart was so easy to assemble – it took me less than five minutes and everything I needed was in the box when it arrived.
1. Remove cart from the box. The cart is so sturdy when it is put together, but is remarkably lightweight!
2. Add the wheels to the base of the cart using the little tool that comes included.
3. Pull the sides apart.
4. Press down on the base until it flattens. Go ahead – use your foot. The shelves are made of metal!
5. Lift the edge of the shelf and swing in to place.
6. Add the shelves and then insert the tabs to hold the shelves in to place.
7. And voila! You’re ready to get organized!
The cart has six drawers and two shelves, which means I had lots of room to store not only supplies, but tools too! It has freed up a ton of space in my craft room and keeps all of my Cricut supplies in one spot which saves me a ton of time when I am ready to work on projects.
The sturdy top shelf is the perfect fit for my Cricut Maker, and the wheels mean I can leave the cart against the wall when I’m not using it, and then easily pull it away from the wall when I’m ready to work.
Of course I can’t craft without my cardstock! I took my some of favorite organization supplies – these Totally Tiffany Storage Boxes – and turned them on their side for compact and easy to access paper storage.
My favorite place to shop is my house! Had this mug in my kitchen and it was exactly what I needed to store my pens. Looks pretty darn cute too!
I can’t be the only one who can’t keep track of cords and instruction manuals – so I used the top drawer to hold the cords and instructions to all of my Cricut machines and tools. I even had room to store my BrightPad along with it.
The next three drawers now hold a ton of my supplies. All that specialty material I had store a bunch of different places? Now tucked away neatly in a drawer. My vinyl and iron on? The rolls fit perfectly!
If you haven’t already heard, Cricut’s newest machine (the Maker) cuts fabric! This is where I was really struggling. I had no idea how or where to store it but couldn’t stop buying it – I mean…it is all so cute! Thanks to the two deep drawers at the bottom of the cart not only was I able to organize and store my fabric stash, I could also fit my EasyPress so I have it at the ready.
I hope 2018 brings you health and happiness – and organization and creativity! Happy New Year everybody!
