Sprucing Up Plain Baskets



While shopping at Staples, I found these baskets for 75 cents!! 3 of them for 75 cents, so of course I bought two packs! 

I had some Scotch tape brand Washi tape and I just decided to fancy it up.

And since I spend so much time at my small group, I decided to use these cute new baskets at my small group area! 

These are my new "quick grab" buckets, which are things I'm constantly using in small group.
-Witch fingers
-Highlighters
-Highlighting strips
-Teacher basket w/ post its and paper clips

I will certainly be ordering WAY more Washi tape or Scotch tape's brand to do this more over the summer.
I love the way it looks!

  5. I have never used washi tape, Jessica. I think the baskets look totally transformed, and am putting washi tape on my next shopping run. Thanks.
