Nadia's new blocks came in a little muslin bag that didn't close. Really, Wonder toys? You couldn't have added a little piece of Velcro? I needed to think of something to keep them in. I love the look of her blocks and figured something clear would be cute. Though I have about 50 glass vessels of some sort, glass isn't the best idea for a nursery. (Can I still call it that even though she's 16 months, climbing, running, and talking?!). Well when looking around the house I came across an old animal cracker container I'd saved. It was a good size and I figured I could use it for something down the road.
If you don't have any contact paper lying around, consider these alternatives:
1. Use scrapbook paper or gift wrap + adhesive (like I did for this project).
2. Run to HomeGoods or TJ Maxx and grab some. It was $4 on clearance (from $5.99) and literally every time I've visited either of those stores, they've had some in stock.
3. Don't be cheap and lazy like me and smear peanut butter on the container to get the sticker residue off.
And in case you're wondering, these blocks were one of Nadia's Christmas gifts. I didn't splurge on the ones I mentioned in this post, but I love this set! They're not ultra modern but a bit fresher than traditional blocks. I got them from Zulily but you can find them here.
Enjoy your free small toy storage!
