I will be the first to admit that I’m not the tidiest or organized person out there. It’s something I have to work hard at! However, I love when everything has a place and I know exactly where to go to find it. There is a special satisfaction that comes from tidiness, of that I’m sure. Our new business cards and stationery printed by MOO were just the inspiration I needed to get my life in order, that is, a small corner of my life.
As you might recall, I’m a huge fan of MOO. We worked with them last year to create some new packaging for our business cards and other stationery elements and I can’t recommend them enough. Due to the growth of our company, we were in need of some new business cards for the upcoming year. Lars has some really exciting and fun projects coming up in the next few months and we wanted to incorporate that imagery into our new business cards. So a rainbow assortment was the natural way to go! We are thrilled with how they turned out! They have a new line of cotton business cards made from recycled t-shirts (yes! t-shirts) making them entirely tree-free. And you know what? They’re beautiful. The cards and stationery inspired us to create a rainbow envelope organization system to keep all the odds and ends of my life in check. This is the ultimate command station that would be perfect for a home or work office. The wonderful thing is, all you need is a pegboard and some paper envelopes. I can already feel the stress melting away.
Check out the how-to after the jump!
Let’s talk about the business cards first, shall we? They are made from 100% cotton t-shirt off-cuts. Let’s pause on how amazing that is! Reducing waste while getting a rainbow of beautiful paper goods? Yeah, we feel really great about that. The paper has a subtle texture and feels amazing. We are thrilled with the look of them. Not to mention they come in a lovely little brown box, which we used in our organization system to feature all the different color options of our cards. It makes a great display and sends home the rainbow theme.
It is pretty simple to create our rainbow envelope organization system. First, we bought a pegboard from our local hardware store (they will cut it to your desired dimensions for free!), and painted it a pretty shade of orchid. Then we made some simple envelopes in a pretty palette to facilitate organization. Envelopes were made for lists, recipes, stamps, sticky notes, blank cards, bills, mail, etc. Then everything gets a label for easy locating. Lastly, add pegs for scissors, ribbons, washi tape and tags complete the board. The best part about this system is the versatility. Tailor it to your needs, your color scheme, and your chaos! Then say goodbye to clutter and breathe a sigh of relief.

In addition to our business cards we also printed off some greeting cards so we can send some personalized thank yous. The moment I got them I began immediately. There’s nothing like a card to get you excited about writing a note.
