I'm not going to lie. I'm hooked on Pinterest. I love it. When I joined, I thought it was just going to be another one of those things I joined, but never paid much attention to...boy was I wrong. It really is a great place to get ideas and save the ideas you come across. I mainly use it for recipes and craft ideas. I've been trying all sorts of cute and tasty pins this summer and I decided to share them with you... obviously, some don't work as well as others and that's something I'd like to share too. Here's one of my favorite pin-spired projects:
Our's isn't exactly the same. The main problem was procuring a slide-top box. I eventually found a photo-holder box that would work at a local craft store and then more on Hobby Lobby's website. I followed the rest of the instructions exactly. We painted it red, we used scissors to cut the blue Lego plate and I used regular old Krazy Glue to attach it. The project was finished in one afternoon and Ian absolutely loves his "little lego" box. He plays with it at home and also takes it to restaurants and on trips in the car.
This pin is a win! << So cheesy, I know, but it really is. If you have a little one who loves to do Legos and are looking for an interesting way to store them, this is a quick and easy idea for you! There's also the bonus that Ian watched me make it for him and seems to really appreciate the effort in "handmade by mommy." Awesome.
