Box Tops for Education
This school year Sola will be attending a public school ALE (Alternative Learning Enviornment), so like other public school families, we are stocking up on paper products for our school, such as Scott® Tissue, Kleenex® Trusted Care* 3 Bundle Pack, Kleenex® Trusted Care* 4 Bundle Pack, and Viva® Vantage® 6 Big Rolls paper towels. And added bonus to these paper products is that they are currently offering double Box Tops for Education, which is another easy way to help out local schools. It just takes seconds to save the the Box Tops and I figure, if it is a product my family already needs, why not take the extra second to help a school while I’m at it?
Last week, I went to Walmart to stock up on school supplies while I was stocking up on paper goods and was feeling a little overwhelmed about storing all the school supplies that we need to keep at home. So I decided to make a pencil holder to organize a lot of the loose school supplies. I thought it turned out really cute and will look good in Sola’s bedroom.
- Washi tape
- Paper towel rolls from my Viva® Vantage® 6 Big Rolls package
- Utility knife and scissors
- Hot glue gun
- Small wooden square for the base
- Acrylic paints
- Paint brush
- I cut the paper towel rolls into various lengths, using a utility knife and scissors, being careful not to flatten the roll while I cut.
- I thoroughly wrapped the roll segments in washi tape (I used bright colors for Sola, but you could use any color scheme you want)
- When I got the end of the paper towel roll, I intentionally made sure the tape went past the end of the roll, so I could fold the end inward, which looks better to me. To do this, I had to trim some of the paper towel rolls.
- I then painted my wood block white
- Finally, I used a hot glue gun to attach the paper towel rolls to my wood piece
