Cord Labels

Washi Tape Cord Labels

So I have this weird thing about cords. I know they are necessary to run a modern life, but I just do not like to look at them! They are messy and feel like clutter, and when I have to find one particular cord and they’re all jumbled together I want to run screaming from the charging station. Nobody wants to unplug everything just to find one cord, it’s such a pain!

So I decided to tackle the cord organization and make my cords look prettier with Washi Tape Cord Labels! See how easy (and pretty) it is to organize your cords below! ~Cortnee

How to Organize and Label Cords


– If your cords have any manufacturing labels on them (like in our before picture) make sure to remove those as well.

– If you haven’t made that flag shape cut out before, you just fold the end of the tape corner to corner, and cut at an angle down from the corner to the center. Easy!

    Love the idea of labeling the cords. It would be so useful when I’m crawling around under my office desk looking for a place to plug in some new gadget. Thanks for sharing.
    Congrats on your first book!

      Thanks for sharing this idea..I need to make a trip to Michael’s tomorrow and I’ll look for a thin Sharpie, I want to get rid of a lot of these electronic cords..way too long. Not enough plugs in this room. That’s another project to put on my list but Need to have a licensee electrician do that. If I’d get a laptop, that might eliminate the need for extra plugs for the computer? Still need a plug for a printer though.

      You absolutely can Karen! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I chose the washi tape because I thought it was so cute as well as functional 😉 ~Cortnee

          Hi Paula,
          Most craft stores and even Target should have Washi tape. I believe it’s in the office supply section at Target and a craft store will have a whole aisle dedicated to it. 😉 Rachel
