My only "additional thought" would be to add ribbon loops to each level of cups. Something to help pick up each level. Hope that makes sense, hot glue ribbon handles to each side so they are easier to pick up.
I'll have to try that this year when putting away all the ornaments.
Have a great day,

Next adhered the letters to my bag. This bag is from 5 Below, a store that sells all items for $5 or less! Kinda like the Dollar store. So I figured that if it didn't turn out exactly right, it wouldn't be a great loss! Randomly sprayed the paint over the letters and waited a couple minutes. Finally took the letters off! TAaaa DAaaaa! Not too bad. Next time I'll have to think of something cuter to put on the bag! Not too bad for my first try.
Thanks for looking and have a great day. Cathy

Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town,
The parents were cheering...
It was a riotous sound!
By 8, kids were washed and tucked into bed...
Where memories of homework filled them with dread!
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too!
New teachers, new friends...
Their anxiety grew!
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright-and shouted upstairs:
Go To Bed! It's A School Night!!
Have fun kids!!!!!! Enjoy PARENTS!!!!!!

My original thought was to bring back a bag of sand and Mod Podge it to the mirror, then hot glue the shells on top. However, after the earthquake hit and Irene coming through I totally forgot to fill up a bag - bummer. Had to go with Plan B!

Wish I would have thought of this one, but I read it somewhere and took a picture of it. Don't know who to give credit to, sorry! I think this is my new all time favorite quote!

Some are made with ribbon and some are from material scraps.
The gold one is from some type of wire mesh, not sure where I found this stuff!
Probably more information than you ever thought you'd need, but there it is - my latest reusable shopping bag!

Made cakes exactly according to Glory's instructions -
1 blue cake, with the center cut out
2- 8" red cakes
1- 8" white cake
She has great directions on her site, check it out there.
I embellished with an exploding firework on top of my creation, but the colors are very bright. Note to self - use LOTS more food coloring next time!
Here is the inside of the cake. Turned out pretty nice! It was a big hit at our 4th of July celebration. Kids liked it.

A close up of the handles.
After cutting off the sleeves, had to trim the neckline to make it an even edge. That was the easy part! Next I sewed up the bottom edge of the "bag". So far so good.
I looked throuh my stash of remnents from JoAnn Fabrics to find a good color for the lining. Black was an easy choice.
Also added red buttons on the bottom corners so the lining would stay in place and add another small detail.

and a raw $1.00 frame.My kids painted the frames for their teachers and I chose yellow (my favorite color) for my frame. Then just hot glued the accessories on. Easy peasy! They turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself!

This is a quick shot of the inside of each cup holder. The sunflower has quilting under the cotton material. This was the first one I completed. There isn't any additional material to cover the quilting - BORING!! :-) After visiting JoAnn Fabrics and fishing through their remnits bin I found the cute sunflower material. Thought that would look a little "happier" than just the blue quilting (which was also from the remnits bin at Joann's!).
This is an upclose view of the buttons holding the straps on, had to use one on the inside and one on the outside of each strap. A quick view of inside of the bag, used striped material to go along with the stripes from the courdory. I thought is was kinda cute! You can see the "security" buttons on the inside here. Overall it is pretty cute, and I love using it at a store! When checking out the cashier always comments on the bag. Thanks for looking! Have a good day. Cathy
