This week has been very busy and exciting as Preston and I have been at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill attending orientation. Preston is now registered for his classes and is all ready to be a TarHeel come August. As a new Carolina parent, I was the recipient of lots of good information, all of it contained in this shopping bag:
I was about to stuff this plastic bag into the container with all the other plastic bags when the mascot caught my eye. The wheels in my mind started turning, and I cut out the ram and mounted it on a sheet of white paper.
Then I cut out the image an had a perfect vinyl decal:
A quick search of my storage shelves revealed a tin which once contained cookies. I spray-painted it blue:
And then I simply ModPodged the mascot onto the tin.
Voila! From a couple of pieces of trash, I now have
a custom UNC tin!
I'm going to give this to Preston with the promise of homemade cookies for him and his roommate to share. My oldest son will be a junior at Duke; I wonder if he'd like a tin with a Blue Devil on it.
Can't you imagine one of these with your favorite team logo on it? Or with your child's favorite toy logo?
