Car organizer from Crystal's Craft Spot

I feel silly introducing Crystal today because I feel like I talk about her so much, you're bound to know who she is! But, in case you're new here...I consider Crystal to be my bloggy BFF. She is so talent, so sweet, and the kind of person you just want to be around. She's guest posted here before, and she was face behind the huge giveaway fundraiser for Austin last month. You'll love her project today! 

I'm so excited to be here on Kitty Cats and Airplanes today.  Amie is one of my all time favorite bloggers.  She has great style and crafts as well as being so sweet. 

I am Crystal from Crystal's Craft Spot. Its my little spot to share my current craft projects, tutorials, recipes, and ideas I want to use in the future. I have a craft challenge every Wednesday and Feature yourself Friday that I would love for you to join. I try to post something new almost everyday and I enjoy a variety of crafts. It is my way to relax and take a break from a busy day.
Here are a few of my favorite projects

I was so excited when Amie asked me to do a guest post for her and even more excited when she told me she wanted it a travel theme.  I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  Now I'll be the first to say this is certainly not the cutest thing I've ever made but its functional and will make my super messy car so much cleaner.
My Car Organizer-It even has dividers to keep things separate and easy to find.
I started with a diaper box.  Make sure find a box that will fit your car.  I wanted mine to go between the two front seats.  I checked and thought it would fit until I was all finished and then realized there was a bar right where it is suppose to slide.  I may cut a hole in mine or just leave it in the back.  I was sad but it still works.
Secure the bottom and cut off the top flaps.  Save them, you will use them later.

 Cut fabric to fit the sides of your boxes.  I did one for each size but you could wrap it like a present.
 Apply Mod Podge to the top of your box. 
Add your fabric and apply Mod Podge to the top of your fabric.  Make sure its smooth.
 Hot glue ribbon around the top edge to give it a nice clean look.
 Use your top flaps to create dividers.  I glued the two long ones together (pattern sides facing each other) to make it more sturdy.  Hot glue the edges and the bottom.  It should hold unless you have really heavy items pushing against it.
 Fill It up!
 I added a giant rosette to the front because I thought it needed a little beautifying (is that a word?)

Slip in in your car and you're ready to go on a long 10 hour trip like we often do or running errands.
P.S. I know I need to vacuum.

 Here's a glimpse at our box.  Books, coloring books, and crayons, clip boards, car pillows, dvd player and movies,  diapers, wipes, Aubrey's glasses case, my sun glasses, small notepad and pen.  I still need to add a baggie with extra ponytail holders, snacks, and empty sippy cups.  There will still be room for a few extra little toys and my crochet project. Can you think of anything I'm forgetting?

Come by Crystal's Craft Spot anytime for more crafts and tutorial. Thanks again for letting me stop by. Its been a lot of fun!  Hope you are having a great time on your trip.
Um, genius. That's the only word to use here. It's amazing what you can do with an old box! Thanks so much for being here today Crystal! Take a few minutes to stop by CCS and be inspired by her endless creativity.

I <3 this car organizer, I'm definitely making it. My 3 y/o takes a million hot wheels into the car with him, movies, books, not to mention my wipes for his face and hands, tissues, and all the other essentials. And ends up throwing them all over the car. This would help sooo much!
