Plastic Tub Turned Toy Bin


A couple of weeks ago I found this fun plastic flex tub at Target for only $5.00 and knew exactly what I would use it for. It's a perfect container for all of the little guys toys.

Today I pulled out the Silhouette and cut some fun vinyl shapes to give the tub some character and make it fun for the little man to look at. 

Isn't the robot so fun!

I also tied a bunch of ribbon to the handles to add another element of fun.

I love this solution for his toys because when he's following me around the house, especially the bathroom, I can grab it and bring it in with us and he can pull out all his toys from the bin instead of all the toiletries from the bathroom drawers.

  15. This is too cute! I love these bins and have quite a few of them but hadn't thought of dressing them up with ribbons. I have them in teal and black to match my office and I'm now thinking they are going to need some polka dotted ribbon added to the handles--so cute! I'm glad I found you via the Blog Hop. Following along now and will be back often I'm sure.
