As mothers, sometimes we get so busy trying to enrich our childrens lives and help them tune into their creative side that we often forget about ourselves. I’ve decided to start a McLinky blog carnival to gather all of our projects together so that we can inspire others to feed their own creativity.
This week I did a few crafts for myself and feel more relaxed and accomplished.
Here’s some of the things that I did:
Recycled Fabric Box
(this isn’t a perfect method, just a quick moms guide to making something work quickly)
I opened a package I received in the mail full of ribbons I had ordered. I had absolutely no idea where to put them or how to store them. I thought I’d try something new so I cut the box it came in to a size I thought was right.
Glue or add double sided tape to outer sides of the box, inner sides of box, and bottom (i skipped doing the outer sides of the box since it wasn’t necessary)
This is what I ended up with:
This is by no means the right way… just a way to do something I needed as quick as can be… I am definitely looking for ways in which to make this the “right way” since I do receive a lot of packages and I really like this recycling storage method, it is really useful! 🙂
If you have a link to other fabric box wrapping techniques please leave a link in the comments section.
I also made a crayon roll in my post below
If you haven’t done anything this week then try to find time to do your own craft activities so you can inspire other mamas as well as relax and give yourself a break! 🙂
