Got Ice Cream?

We have been eating WAY WAY too much ice cream at our house lately. Last week I even bought a big gallon instead of the half gallons. We ate the entire gallon in less than a week. When Tom threw the empty gallon bucket in the recycling bin a little light bulb came on in my head. I took it out of the recycle bin and put it in the dish washer. A few hours later I covered it in paper, ribbon, primas and left it sit in my stamp room for a couple days. Today I decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Archivers to buy the Cropodile Big Bite. I couldn't drive home fast enough. As soon as I got here I punched a bunch of holes in the bucket and filled it with ribbon. What do you think? (I know some of the punches are crooked but besides that, what do you think?)

OMG it's cute. That's the project you were telling me about huh? I can't believe you got the Big Bite, oh I want one. Maybe Thursday after swimming, we will be so close....

That is sooo cool. I have been thinking about putting holes in one of those zippered bags that new sheets come in for my ribbon. I like this idea too....hmmm, now I need to decide if I should eat the ice cream, or just use the new sheets bag!!!

you are incredibly creative!! My kids love ice cream, too! If they saw this, they would use it as blackmail to get me to buy them more ice cream.
Awesome job!
