Since NO ONE gets rid of storage containers and they are hard to come by, I'm left to fend for myself. I REFUSE TO USE COOL-WHIP CONTAINERS. I don't care that it's the south and perfectly acceptable. So I found a an empty coffee can and decided to paper mache it. I started with some orange construction paper and finished with 2 layers of book pages.
I think I'd look good on a desk or maybe holding some yellow flowers. Not sure what I'll use it for but it turned out decent. If you want to paper mache something it's simple: Mix water and flower with a tab of glue. Dip paper strips in mixture and apply to what ever you'd like.
