Saw It. Pinned It. Did It. Wedding Bathroom Baskets

Thursday, March 28, 2013

The wedding bathroom basket. Do you need it? Do guests recognize it?

If you aren't even sure what it is, it's a small basket that is placed in the bathroom with toiletries and small things to help your guests out should they need it. Say they have a headache, bad breath or bad hair.

I will tell you I was at a wedding a couple years ago and was in serious need of bobby pins (I'm having a bad hair decade I tell ya) In comes the bathroom basket!

I see it as a cute way to let your guests know they are taken care of in case something goes astray while they are celebrating your nuptials.

So of course Pinterest helped a sister out and I loved this version of the bathroom basket. 




And naturally I just had to link up with Steph my A BEAUtiful Mess and Katie from Keep Calm & Carry on for Saw it. Pinned It. Did it.


What you need

Basket (s) Sizes depend on what you are using it for
Ribbon in your wedding colors
Cardstock (Wedding colors)
Cutter
Box Cutter
Double sided tape
Fun things to put inside!


I scored this at Michael's at their After Christmas sale for $2.00! The liner came right out and is easy to pop back in come Christmas time.




Measured the ribbon to fit around the baskets


You can create the signs in any word processing program. I used ADobe InDesign and they came out well.  I measured them to cover the "Seasons Greetings on each basket. It all depends on how big your basket is.






Used double sided to attach the white card stock to the backer pink card stock. 

Then, cut a slit in your sign. I put mine right next to the white. Make it the same size as your ribbon because you will have to slide the ribbon through it. 

Slide the ribbon through and I then stapled the ribbon around the back. Made it unnoticeable and plus it's the back right?
