Competition Bin

Makena has her first dance competition today and they need to have a bin to hold all of their hair stuff, make-up, shoes etc. We had an old plastic tool box lying around that I used to use for my craft stuff before I had a room to organize it in. No little girl wants a gray Craftsman box her for girly dance things so we fixed that! We spent the last two days cutting, coloring and gluing! She picked everything from the paper to the stamps to where everything went. It's all her design and coloring for the most part. I just did the intricate cutting and gluing so the things were straight. We had so much fun working on it together and can't wait for people to see it. We used a lot of sizzix dies on it for the ballerina and letters. The flowers are mostly Stampin' Up stamps with a few others thrown in. The dance stamps and fairy are from Inkadinkado. I even used some old paper punch containers for things like her sewing kit and bobby pins. We covered those with paper as well as the mirror back to match the bin. She's happy and that's all that matters. We'll let you know how she did tomorrow. Break a leg, Makena!!

This is a wonderful idea!! What a great project to do together. I'm sure she'll be envied not only for her dance talent, but for that beautiful make-up tote. Stunning work, Ladies!
