Made By Me Monday #2



I was throwing away an empty Pringles container this morning, when I thought "this thing is just too good to throw out!" So, I decided to create a container for our Letters To Santa!

Supplies Needed:

mod podge your paper onto your container
(I added an extra strip to put my lettering on)

add a wire to hang it

 add ribbon, of course! :)

sandpaper the edges

{that's it!}

the Pringles lid is PERFECT just as it is!!

total time spent: 30 minutes
total cost: free! :)
____________

...and did you know that there is a GIVEAWAY going on?
