Tuesday Tidbit

In light of back to school, I found this fabulous Eco conscious craft quite appropriate this week. This simple project not only follows my favorite recycle and reuse philosophy, but it also provides a super cool way for kiddos to carry their sandwich for lunch.

This Tuesday's Tidbit is taken straight from my current issue of Family Fun. I discovered this project way in the back on page 115, I almost missed it actually. And for this reason I would like to share it with you because it is really fabulous and I think it deserves to be noticed.

So you take a used gallon milk jug and give it a refreshing and cleansing super bath, say through your dishwasher. After super bath, draw the below pictured lines on this milk jug. A few snips and folds and Voila your kiddo has a recycled way to tote that fabulous sandwich you made for him to school!

If you would like to see the original Family Fun instructions, follow the link and have a look see!! I am just loving this fabulous idea. I have even got my Pink Haired Momma wheels a turning on how I could decorate and personalize these little babies to add some flare and personality!! Hmmmm...


  1. Wow! That is fabulous! I might have to make one for my husband.

  2. That is so cute! And such a great idea! Also, the materials are pretty easy to find too. I love finding randomly fabulous things in magazines to share with people!

  3. Rikki!
    I didnt think about using it for the hubbs! What a great idea!

    Domesticated Gypsy! Me too. The little tips and tricks that dont reside on the cover or in large print are always so fabulous!!! They deserve more credit!!!


Tell me something Fabulous...
