problem solved

I had this problem.

But I also had this "reader tip"

from this magazine.

So with these tools
plus cute scrapbook paper,

I was able to make this

to hold these

in 2 minutes.

Not kidding.

Now I just need Tate to finish off another can of formula so I can make another one for the rest of the headbands!

Oh, and the best part - you can store ribbons or bows or any other girlie accessories inside the cans!

Now go do it.  :)

This project is totally on my to-do list! I saw it in Family Fun and loved it, too! We're trying to finish oatmeal here! :)

CUTE!!! Now, I just need to go shopping for a few more headbands :) We're just getting into them, over here.

I have an oatmeal can with this project written ALL over it :)

Saw that super cute idea, too and it made me a) wish that I had that problem/solution and b) glad that I don't have to worry about boy accessories!!! Ha ha. My Sissy also had a really cute idea that she used a cool wide ribon tied in a bow at the top - she hung it on the wall (or a bulletin board) and clipped all their hair clippies and other bands to it. Turned out SUPER cute and cost ZERO dollars...plus the girls could grab off of it what they wanted to wear each day (which good be a pro or a con!) You're such a grrreat Mommy!

ummm, you are amazing!!! If I had a daughter I would totally do this. I am going to share this idea with my friends with girls.

PS I really enjoyed seeing your children at the party last night. They are ADORABLE!!! Love Tate's hair :-)
