Labeling Baskets with Key Tags

I have a bookshelf full of identical wicker baskets holding all different sorts of craft supplies.  I like the way they look- nice and uniform on the shelves.  But it’s been really hard to remember what is in each basket without pulling them all out to find what I’m looking for.  I needed labels.

It’s easy to slap a label on a plastic container or on a cardboard box.  But how do you label baskets?

The solution I’ve found is to use split ring key tags, available at office supply stores.  You can thread some ribbon, wire, or string around one of the reeds of the basket and tie the key tag to the basket.  Then you can label the key tag with whatever is in the basket.  One tip: label both sides so you don’t need to worry about the tag flipping around.
