Thanks for tuning in for this week's installment of Make It Monday! This week, I was posed with the task of making some sort of container for show and tell and the Playdough Club I had the parents sign-up for (they take turns making homemade playdough for the class to use). I decided I would use some old ice cream buckets we had sitting around. I found some adorable patterned duct tape and made a few labels (found here for FREE).
I simply chose a crappy pair of scissors (it will get a little sticky and I didn't want to ruin my good ones)...
Started taping up the sides leaving a little extra on the bottom...
(After all the sides are taped)
Cut slits in the extra part on the bottom...
And folded all the extra under.
For the playdough bucket, I needed a place to put a recipe. So I wrote "Recipe" and "Please return by: ____" on an envelope, laminated it, cut the top flap off, used a knife to cut right where I wanted the opening to be, and taped it to the inside of the lid. This way I can write the return date on the envelope with a Sharpie and still be able to erase it with a little fingernail polish remover.
And that's it!
