Made It Monday With A Freebie

It's Made It Monday time again over at 4th Grade Frolics and I'm linking up with my latest project.

Maybe it's just me, but I always seem to have a ton of plastic grocery bags. There's lots of reasons why I keep the bags around, but they can easily get out of control. So today's project was a cute way to store my bags that would keep them accessible while hiding their ugliness. I think it turned out great.

It started as an empty antibacterial wipes container. I peeled off the label. Thankfully, it came off really easily. Then I hot glued a ribbon around the top and bottom. I added a bow to the top.

Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word "Bags" in black vinyl. After I stuck on the vinyl it was ready to go.

I also wanted to share a little freebie with you today. Since it is summer time I made some bucket stationary. You could use it to write about a trip to the beach, a summer bucket list, or use it with a classroom lesson on bucket filling. Just click on the picture to download your free copy. If you want to find even more freebies you can stop by Manic Monday over at Classroom Freebies.
