Default Anyone Attached Labels to Fabric Bins?

I have several of the cubicle storage things with fabric bins. I recently labeled them with index cards, so the kids could see the words and picture of whats inside. Regular scotch tape is not staying very securely, as the bins are constantly used. Any suggestions from someone who has labeled them?

I have fabric bins also and I laminated photos of the toys and names and used heavy duty Velcro so I can switch them up with ease

Office supplie: Use the hanging name tag holders and clip them on.
That is what I use on my canvas bags for the kiddos stuff.

VELCRO. Laminate the cards and add velcro to the bin and card. I have them like that, it works great and they can easily be changed without damaging the bin.
