Getting My Craft On!

Having Monday off was wonderful!  I got a lot of stuff done including house cleaning, a good workout, and some crafting.  This was all accomplished during Avie’s unusually long nap time.  I have been itching to do something crafty but haven’t had a moment.  Monday was my day!  Avie’s new crayon box was a mixture of necessity and just-for-fun.  We had the big box of 96 crayons but Avery got ahold of it and well that was the end of that box.  Enter craft paper and an old wipes container.

I had scraps from Avery’s first birthday party.  I love the patterns and figured it would be a great way to use up what was left.

I measured the paper to fit between these raised areas on the wipes container.  I was not about to fight with paper and rounded corners. I then used Modge Podge to glue the paper to the container.  I could have used tape but… I didn’t have any.  What I did have was Modge Podge.  I have to say I like the finish.  It will probably stand up to roughness it will surely face at the hands of my toddler.

I did the same thing on the sides with a corrdinating paper.

Finally I added sticker letters.  I found that they blended a little too well.  It’s like reading one of those “I Spy” books.  Do you spy the ‘R’?

So I fixed this problem by adding an outline with one of my colored pens.

Avery and I really like the finish product.  It’s cute and functional.  I love being a friend of the environment :)!

How was your President’s Day?  Do anything crafty?

Go and Create!
