Halloween Treat Tubes

Made these cute gift boxes for the kids yesterday.

I cut a paper towel tube in half, printed out a picture, glued it onto the tube and folded in the ends.

HUGE NOTE: I've seen people do this with toilet paper tubes and I'm kind of grossed out a bit by that. Especially since I've also seen where they drop in loose candy. Have we not all seen Mythbusters and know how many germs fly around when we flush? Maybe I'm overreacting. It's just a little too close to the toilet for me. Do what makes you comfortable.

I stuffed a pair of skeleton gloves in the one for Vance, but while doing so I noticed that they are adult size. Funny, I unknowingly did the same thing with the new socks that I bought him on Tuesday. I'm enjoying the new socks (they have arch support!) and it looks like I'll be rocking new spooky gloves too.

For Vaughn's I have a Halloween headband. Hmmm....Not going to work either. I'll stick one end of the headband in. Quoting Tim Gunn, "We'll make it work". (Tim Gunn is in no relation to Tommy Gunn, produce-man extraordinaire. Tommy Gunn's response to a lady who asked what to do with okra: "Lady, you can do whatever the hell you want with that okra after you buy it." I love that story.)

Happy Make it Work Friday to you!

    Fill us in on Vance's goals. That's terrific! Love the Halloween pics today. So clever with the paper towel rolls. I bet he gets really excited for lunch to see what surprise comes his way. Mom

    Good post - charisa dee.


  4. I love how creative you are. I totally agree with you about the toilet paper rolls. I am pretty grossed out when it comes to bathroom stuff. Dr. Oz had a whole segment on it the other day which grossed me out even more. Anyway, I love all your Halloween stuff. Congrats to Vance and all his goals last night. So cool.

  5. Thanks guys!

    Something clicked for Vance last night at soccer. He actually went after the ball and took control. Needless to say he was super excited about the goals and to hear everyone cheer for him. It's funny, I usually stay home with Vaughn but we decided to tag along and watch last night. So glad I was there to see it.

  6. I'm going to have to remember all this stuff to make for my grand daughter next year :D Thanks for all the really cool ideas!
