For my Mom

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, February 12, 2010
My daughter loves strawberry milk.  She used to call it "Pink Milk".  Needless to say, we have A LOT of Nestle Quik containers kicking about the house.  So, one day, I glued some paper onto one, put some stickers on the top that spell "Markers" and that's what I keep my extra Copics, blender pens, journaling pens, etc in.  It's super basic!  My Mom liked this idea and asked if I could save her a container.  Sure, I've got enough, right?  So, I called her the other day to tell her that I had one for her, and she asked if I would alter it for her.  Her only request was that I use paper to match the yellow container, which is logical, I guess!  

Well, here it is - I sure hope she likes it!  It definitely looks a lot better than mine!

The paper had a wonderful glittery design, so I went out today to find some gold glittery letters to spell her name and the "pens" on the top.  I also added some ribbon, with those adorable little stick pins.  I dabbed a little bit of gold stickles onto the pins, to tie in the gold glitter everywhere else.
(pay no attention to my card reader... I couldn't get the top to stand up without bracing it with something!!)

So, we'll see how Mom likes it!

Great idea! Your daughter's not alone, I loved Strawberry Quick when I was a little girl. I haven't had it in years...may have to go buy a box...
