I made labels for my baskets tonight and will stick them on temporarily, though I am sure they will soon fall off. I'm looking for ideas on how you attach labels and what you attach them to. I'd like something easy as I have a lot of baskets.

hot glue is fast and easy, and will stick as long as you want it to, but will also pull off if you pull hard enough.

Book Bin Labels

I am trying a new idea. I printed the book bin label on a 2" x 4" shipping label. Then I peeled off the label and attached it to the blank side of a 3" x 5" index card. I cut about 6" of clear 2" wide tape and laid the card face down on the tape. Next I attached the label to the front of the basket. These baskets have solid corners and open spaces along the sides. I hope this works.

I originally put my labels (used Beth Newingham's - gotta love her!) on with velcro dots. Unfortunately, I would find a few labels on the floor every time I went in to set up. So, I punched 2 holes in them (only the ones that fell off, mind you) and used one of the plastic rings sold by Really Good Stuff to attach to the basket. I will probably end up doing all of them, and will use metal rings when I run out of the plastic ones. I just don't have the energy to do all - they will have to fall off first! I was so excited to find the velcro dots in my desk...oh well. Too humid, I guess! Good luck with yours!

I buy the themed desk name plates that go with whatever theme I have in my classroom. I write on the desk plate whatever the basket is labeled (AR levels, biographies, etc...) and use 2 inch wide clear boxing tape to stick it to the baskets.

I also put mine on index cards (a printed sticker). I laminated the cards and then I put two hole punches on each. I attach it to the basket with twist ties. I figure this will allow me to change the baskets if necessary without having to worry about stickiness of past tape.

full page labels

I found full page (8 1/2 x 11) sticker labels. I love them! I didn't need to fit my basket labels into a template, I created them free-form, 9 to a page, and then printed them on the giant label. I laminated them (If you laminate them back to back with the printed side out, you only get laminate on the side you want) and stuck them directly to my book buckets. So far so good!

I punched holes in them like a previous poster, but I went a less expensive route to fasten them - I bought those plastic zip ties at a dollar store (there were maybe 50 in the package) and used those to run through the holes and the slats in the basket. I just trimmed off the ends once they were on so I didn't have plastic bits sticking out.

On baskets with no slats, I used library binding tape - it's way stickier than packing tape.

I put mine on index cards and then the I wrap packing tape around the front of the basket. I looovvvvve packing tape for so many things!

I wait to label mine because the kids draw on the labels, which I think gives them buy-in to taking care of the library and keeping it orderly.

Clear packing tape works easily and seems to stay!

I don't like the mark packing tape leaves if I decide to change things around. Currently I am using hot glue and it's my new fave.

I used super glue to secure mine to the side of the baskets. We are a week in and they are still holding on!

Basket Labels - Combo of you all!
Old 09-03-2008, 01:55 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #14

Hello! For my book basket labels for my classroom library, I have used a combination of what several people tried. I designed the labels I want on Print Shop, inspired by Beth Newingham's. Thank you so much Beth!

After printing them, I used a glue stick to press them to a poster board. Cut the poster board labels and punched two holes in each. Ran them through the laminator. Now, I used string through the two holes to tie them to the baskets (most of have holes) or tie them to spiral book stands. They have held up this way for years! If I have to change the baskets, I just cut off the string. If I need to use a bin without holes, I use the packaging tape mentioned before.

The stiff poster board helps alot. If kids pull on them, no harm done!
