Basket How-To & Winners!!!


Hey guys!

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments on my laundry room!  Reading them made me smile and I so appreciate you taking the time to leave them!

My kiddos have been home from school the last 4 days because we were hit with an ice storm.... Then a snow storm.  The funniest part was that it was 70 degrees less than a week ago... You locals know what I mean!

I had many questions about these so here we go...

Remember my baskets??


Well... Here is how I did them.  This is super easy!

I started with these great baskets I found at Michael's half off... Woohoo!


I purchased my jute webbing from Joann's at $.79 a yard.  You can find this with the upholstery and drapery supplies... So cute!!


The next step is simple... Just hot glue your jute webbing to the basket.  I eyeballed mine and pretty much stayed centered :-)


I found these binder clips at Target for $2.  I knew I could use them for lots of things so I bought the 50 pack.


Clipped them on...


To make my tags I used my very favorite tool...








I used my Silhouette to cut my tags.  I picked these tags from a ton that they had on their software.  I LOVE the fact that you can buy just one shape at a time for $.99 rather than buying a whole bulky cartridge that you have to keep up with.

I made my numbers using my Silhouette as well.  This is another favorite feature of mine.  You can use any font on your computer which is awesome!  You can download free fonts and literally have thousands of font choices! Once again... That beats the pants off of cartridges girls!

I used a glue stick to stick the tags together and attach my numbers and that was it..... So simple!



And here they are all together...


I found my tin pail at Ikea for $3 and the super cute cherry blossom stem at Michaels for $2.  I thought they finished the space off perfectly.

Hope you like them!  Let me know if you have any questions and make sure I have your email if you want an answer :-)
