Box Tops Collection Container DIY
I’ve had this empty sanitizing wipes container in my house for over a year, begging me to do a project. I’ve always loved these canisters, especially with the easy open and close lid. Surely, I could find something awesome to put in it, right? Then Back-to-School dawned on me. I need to be putting this canister to work with this Box Tops Collection Container DIY. An easy way to collect and store our Box Tops for Education, this upcycled project is a perfect way to get the whole family involved this school season.
What You Will Need:
- Empty Sanitizing Wipes Canister – clean, dry and label removed
- Tissue Paper
- Glue/Modge Podge
- Paint Brush
- Mini Chalkboard Sign
- Chalk/Chalk Markers
- Optional: glitter
1. Using the scissors, cut out equal sized squares out of your tissue paper.
2. Using your paint brush, brush on a thin layer of glue on the outside portion of your wipes canister. Decorate and arrange your tissue paper squares as desired. Perfect time for your kids to get creative! Add more glue and more tissue paper squares as desired. Glitter in this step would be fun! Allow to dry.
3. Make it known that you are collecting Box Tops on your chalkboard sign. Write a great message on the chalkboard. Glue string onto the back of your sign. Glue your sign onto your canister.
4. Proudly display and fill your box with Box Tops for your school.
And with Back-to-School around the corner, you bet that we are making the extra efforts to ensure that my son’s school is getting as much support from our family as possible. This canister is a perfect reminder to keep on top of collecting our Box Tops throughout the school year. What makes collecting Box Tops for Education even easier this season? Bonus Box Tops!
