So you’ve got your DreamBox, or maybe you’re waiting for yours to arrive. You’re likely facing the dilemma of what to do first. What style should you give it?

We’ve set out to guide you through this first stage of your DreamBox organization with several helpful tips and tricks. Regardless of where you would like to begin, this post is designed to help you find what you need all in one place!

Decorating Your DreamBox

Now that your layout is planned, you can finally personalize the look of your DreamBox! You’ve likely noticed how some of our creators have decorated the front of their InView Totes with colorful cardstock cutouts, also called “tote covers”. These are paper inserts that can added to the inside of your clear totes. If you’re wondering how you can do the same, don’t worry, it’s super simple to DIY these at home!

To learn how you can make tote covers with cardstock yourself, go check out our post here: three steps to DIY tote decor. (For crafters who own a Cricut cutting machine, click below to download the free SGV files for your tote covers)

For those who selected the DiviDrawers with their DreamBox setup, we recommend you use these specific dimensions below to create your personalized covers:

Interior Dimensions:  6.08" H x 12.25" W

If you’re hoping to label the outside of your totes, but you’re worried about how it will look, there’s no need to stress. Plenty of creators have added vinyl lettering to their totes for a more aesthetic and creative look. Whether you want your totes to remain clear so you can easily see them, or you want to add tote covers, the vinyl labels will give a nice touch to your DreamBox that enable you to keep everything organized and easily in sight.

Check out our labels blog here or watch the video below for a quick tutorial on how to make your own!
