Show and Tell-Oatmeal? Redoo?
Today is Show and Tell, so I would like to show you how to do something creative with an oatmeal container!
Be sure to check out the other show and tell gals at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/
You know how you look at things 'DIFFERENTLY' when you are crafting or coming up with something inexpensive that you want to do. I was looking (eyeing) at my oatmeal container thinking (visualizing cutting, spray painting, altering) surely I could do something with that! Here is what I came up with. Took about 35 minutes total.
I used scrapbook paper
Very simply I eyed the paper, cut it after I cut the oatmeal container to size...
glued the paper down, added trim to the lid...added a bow and tag...
Then I thought...I need to make some for Christmas! I am getting some more oatmeal from the grocery store! I also thought this might be cute to make with pastel papers and use it to hold a small gift for a baby shower, or a birthday party-using birthday papers...Silver or gold paper to hold a small anniversary gift.
