My initial goal this morning was to make these milk jug toy holders. Talk about fast! It takes like two minutes to cut one of these open, string a fabric scrap through the handle, fill with toys and hang on the shelf. I love this storage solution compared to purchasing buckets or such. I'm sure you could decorate these to make them more attractive, but I was so pleased with the initial outcome that I haven't bothered.
So, while I was cutting these, I realized the leftover part was sort of mask-shaped. I did a little cutting and came up with these really creepy Phantom-meets-pigman masks. (Well, one is a little more raccoonish). The model is a friend of ours since my kids don't like anything (with the occasional exception of face paint, but even that's iffy) touching their faces.
I was glad to find a use for the entire milk carton. Very fast and satisfying! But, really, what do you think about the gas-, I mean, dress-up masks...cool or creepy?
P.S. Pay no attention to the thick layer of dust on the shelf. Unless it's encouraging to you as a mom, in which case, pay close attention.
