If you need a quick and inexpensive little Halloween themed gift, this is super easy and
- empty fry box (I like the shape of Sonic's tot boxes)
- gumball eyes
- scrapbook paper
Step One: Eat the tots or fries so that you have an empty container. Yes, I know, this is probably the best step of the whole project! :)
Step Two: Carefully undo the empty package and wipe it out so there are no leftover food pieces or grease.
Step Three: Trace shape onto scrapbook paper and cut out.
Step Four: Fold cut out paper into fry box shape and staple or glue together.
Step Five: Decorate
Step Six: Fill with treat and give away!
Seriously! Wasn't that just about the easiest thing ever? Yes, I do know you can buy containers like these, however, they aren't always in the size or color you want and this way you can enjoy an unhealthy treat, re-purpose and customize all at the same time. For me the whole project cost $2. (The .99 cent tots and the gumballs from the $1 store. I had everything else on hand.)
And, because I like to craft with my kids, this is one of those easy projects that they can do and customize. Little Bug, one of my twins, made this one for a friend - cute, right?!
So there you have it, Enjoy!
