Have you ever been to the beach and collected all those beautiful shells? You have me too!! When you get ready to leave, do you have a good place to put the shells? No? Me either!
That is until now. I saw this really cute idea on a blog somewhere, I don't even really remember where. It may have been over at the Tip Junkie. Anyway someone was making these container to hold you "treasures" that you find at the beach. They were making and selling these things. Now if I had not been just oozing with craftiness lately, I might have bought one. I thought to my self, "Self, you can make that thing!" So I did. Ok Well Syd made it, but I thought of the whole idea. Ok well whoever I got the idea from thought of it. I was just the facilitator of the idea. The middle man, middle management, the person who bought the stuff, but did not have time to actually do it.
So you will need you the following:
A clear container with a lid.
Something sort of like this just with out the beans. :)
Not necessarily these, but you know what I mean.
I also used these
Then my assistant took the container and decorated it. Like this.....
Awww isn't that sweet!!! She wrote "I love you bubba" on the bottom. :)
So now when we go to the beach Logan can take this down there, with him to bring his treasures back safe and sound.
