4th of July is just around the corner. Whether you plan on taking a picnic dinner to a park to watch the fireworks or are hanging out in your backyard, I’ve got the perfect way to help you transport some of your smaller items such as utensils, napkins and condiments.
How many times have you purchased a box of coffee or soda and thought you really should put that box to good use? I do it all the time. I have great intentions of making supply caddies for the kids art supplies, homework stationery and of course for parties.
Well, finally I made one.
What you need:
- Cardboard drink holder
- Scrap paper
- Mod Podge and brush
- Pencil and scissors
Lay one side of the carton onto the scrap paper and draw a line around it. Cut the piece out and adhere it to the carton using Mod Podge.
Repeat this step until all four sides are covered.
Lay a piece of paper over the handle and sketch the shape, including the opening for the handle. Cut it out, turn it over and make a mirror image of it for the other side. Attach both pieces with the Mod Podge.
Now fill your caddy with whatever you need to make your 4th of July celebrations special:
- bottle openers
- glow sticks
Have a great 4th!
