My Bargain Bins for Craft Storage

I have been spring cleaning and organizing in several area's of our home..
and one of those projects has been my craft space.

I have been working on organizing it a little better, and wanted to find some containers
for my shelves.. and then realized the container that our ice cream comes in would
be perfect.  They are a square shape with a lid.

So I started saving them.. and whenever we have emptied an ice cream tub.. I wash it up, dry it, and decorate it.

My Bargain Storage Bins.. :0)

I use decorative Scrapbooking Paper, Modge Podge, and a sponge brush..
I simply cut the paper to fit over the label on the front, as well as to fit in the lid and simply brush modge podge on, place the paper on, and after it is dry.. a light layer of modge podge over the paper.

Then I can fill it with some supplies, add a fun chalkboard label, and place it neatly on my shelf.

So cheerful.. and organized! (and basically free)  Love...

I can think of a lot of things to use these containers for.. and I don't mind "having" to eat ice cream
for them.. :0)
