Blogger's Challenge - Summer!

I have a few projects to share that I've been working on the past week. It was the last week of school, so I was working on gifts for Hope's teachers and her classmates.

The first one is the gift that I made for her classmates. It's a little box (about 3 x 3) with a acetate window in the top so you can see the lemonade cup inside. I buy these tubes of powdered drink mixes, there are 6 containers in each tube and each container makes 2 quarts. Perfect for summer!

This is the top view

This is a better view of the lemonade cup.

The next project is the gift for the teachers. I bought these little "Grow Kits" in the Dollar Spot at Super Target - LOVE that store! I used the same box template as I did for the lemonade project. I just made the bottom of the box, but the grow kit in and made a sleeve for it out of a transparency sheet.

This is the Grow Kit as it looked when I first bought it.
This is the before and after shot! Aren't they adorable!
That's all for today! I hope everyone has a great start to their summer! Don't forget to check back on the 20th for the "Tour de Freaks" blog hop. Details in the post below!

Cute! I had a few of those cute little flower pots in my hands one day and ended up putting them back. Now I wish I hadn't!
