Table-Top Garbage/Scraps problem...


Life is still crazy busy; where does the time go? We are doing well and are currently preparing for a vacation to Western Washington in a couple of days. I can't wait - that's home to me!!

Since my team meeting is tomorrow night, I was straightening up and decided to fix my table top scrap/garbage problem. I recently bought these cute plastic baskets (in green & blue - my colors) thinking they'd be great for cute little table top garbages. I got them at the "Everything's a DOLLAR" store. They came 2 per pack!


I put in a small bag so things wouldn't fall thru those cute little holes...and it worked, but was quite unsightly. Plus, the basket lost all of it's cuteness.


Although it's not stamped at all...I now LOVE my little garbage container. I used about 4 yards of ribbon and a small piece of cardstock in the bottom. It took me about 40 minutes to do once I had the idea.
