I've been making quite a few things for my kitchen. I bake and cook a lot, so naturally I have way too many utensils. Ha! They definitely don't all fit in one crock and have started taking over my drawers. My husband brought home a case of old plastic containers for beanie babies that someone at his work was going to throw away. i have him trained to look for stuff! LOL!

Anyway, I primed and painted them then printed some words and graphics on my Silhouette and wrapped some fabric (old tablecloth) around the rims. Finished them off with some twine. I love how they came out and they are proving to be very very useful! Smiley I have a full tutorial on my blog here

Thanks for looking, hope you like them! Smiley

Here's a before shot Smiley

I adore these!  My "big utensil" drawer is getting difficult to shut these days...but of course I also lack counter space.  I'll have to do some thinking, but I really, really, really want these now!

Thanks so much everyone! I actually don't have a ton of counter space either. These fit nice and snug pushed back against the wall so I can still use the counter. I really appreciate all your compliments!! Smiley Smiley Smiley
