Gets a make-over...

I carry quite a bit of stuff with me every day. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, a project or two, or ingredients for a baking project. I am the daycare provider for my youngest grandson. I like to bring new and intriguing things for him to do or experience. Sensory projects, new books to read, crayons, markers and paper, and the list goes on. He is a very smart little boy, he just turned two a month ago. His vocabulary is extraordinary and so is his memory. As you can see I need a large bag for all of my projects on the go.
At first I thought that one box would be all that I needed. My main concern was keeping all of my paperwork separate, neat and easily accessible. However, once I got into the project I soon decided to add another. This time when I went to my little box collection I was in need of one that was just the right size. Bingo, one of my husbands' pop tart boxes was a perfect fit.
For some reason I haven't been able to get rid of this old lace tablecloth, now it has come in handy. I think that the only part of it that is usable is a few feet of the edge. Of course, I did not need it all for this project so it went back into the lace box.
I didn't include step-by-step directions as it is such a simple project. First, I covered the boxes with the fabric as if I were wrapping a package, using hot glue instead of tape. On the open end of the box I just folded it in and tacked it down with the hot glue. I still had a nice swatch of material left so I made a pocket for the front. It covered the printed advertising quite well. I love how all the colors seem to match and touch of lacey fun too. The finished project even holds my laptop and cords. :)
