Christmas Day Camp Tote 2008

I used ice cream buckets again this year for the base of our tote to hold the day's projects. I had an ample supply of these buckets because my elderly parents eat a whole lot of ice cream and keep the containers for me.

This year we tore up a variety of tissue paper in Christmas colors and prints. We used sponge brushes to apply Elmer's glue to the bucket. Tissue paper was applied to cover the outside of the bucket. A curly ribbon was added to the handle for a bit of holiday flair!

Each of the child's names were written with a marker on the tote they created. As projects were finished they placed them in their tote.
