"Snack Cups" Tutorial


I found this idea in this months issue of Family Fun magazine. "What a great idea!"
So I decided to try it and share it with all of you.
O.k. so the first thing you want to do is take your empty milk boxes (or other juice boxes, etc.) and wash them out, then let them dry
Then, draw a "U" shape on each side of the box and cut them out.Now, you should have a box that looks like this.Then, fold each side down to make the snack box.Now the fun part! Decorating it. You could use scrapbook paper, crayons, markers, etc.
Let the kids help! **Note-Using double stick tape works the best. Glue takes a long time to dry and it wrinkles the paper. They'll love this project and LOVE the snacks that come in it.Once it is decorated, put some velcro tabs on it and you have cute little snack cups. The great thing about these is that you can save money on baggies, and just in case the kids
"accidentally" throw them out, no problem they were free and easy to make.
Another use for them I just thought of is little party favor boxes. How cute is that?!

The Pod Snuggler





This is the Pod Snuggler. I made one for my sister to try out and test her design/pattern to see what she could change on it to make it easy to follow. After testing it, I decided that I liked it enough to make them and sell on my Etsy shop. So after getting permission from my sweet sister I am now offering them at www.brittasinger.etsy.com. If anyone wants to try out her pattern you can go to www.laurelandmaisy.etsy.com
I made this one for my neighbor who just had a baby boy, and she was so excited about it. She had gotten a swaddler at the store, but it didn't come with instructions so she didn't ever know if she was doing it right. This snuggler is so easy to wrap your baby in and easy to wash that she was very happy to get it, and as soon as she wrapped up her crying little boy he stopped crying. That's part of the reason that I decided to sell them. I like to make a product that people can get a lot of use out of and they can customize it to make it one of a kind.
