Gift Idea

I told Madison at Funky Cards that I had an idea to share with her as a gift or a fundraiser.  I just checked Madison's blog and she has a post about recycling, so this idea fits right in.  I took a drink holder from Sonic and spray painted it black, one of our school colors, black & gold.  I then used mesh to wrap around it and after stamping and cutting 6 volleyballs out, placed them around the black drink holder and used a gold marker to write on it.  Anything can be used to fill the drink holder.  What I used were bags of candy, tissue paper stamped with volleyballs, cereal bars and crackers, a hand towel with my name embroidered on it and a water bottle decorated with paper, mesh and a decorated hanger with Crystal Light in it. The decorated water hanger instructions can be found on Youtube, one of the videos is from dawn5377, who has a lot of AWESOME videos.

  2. Wow, this is terrific.
    Thanks for sharing it with us.
    I thank you for stopping by my blog & leaving such nice comments regarding my posts.
    I have been feeling a bit down lately & questioning this blog thing. Somehow my blog has been hijacked of sorts. My background is gone, my HTML codes are wacky & quite honestly I don't know how to fix it. I have tried all the blogger advice but I must not be doing something right. Then low & behold I see comments from some of my followers & it brightens my spirit and motivates me to want to keep trying to figure out how to fix it.
    So thanks for stopping by.
    I am so grateful.
    Take care & keep sharing your works of art with us all.
    Hugs,
    Sonia
