First, I shook out all the loose bits of remaining oatmeal, and admired the container upright.
Yes, it is a preschool teachers treasure.
Next, I found some pretty wrapping paper that one of my kids received on a birthday present last year. We had folded it nicely and stored it with our scrap booking supplies. It wasn't in the best shape for this project but I figured I could make it work.
There was left-over paper gathered at the top, I folded it gently inside the top of the container.
Then, I pulled out the felt. I used it to cut out a circle bigger than the circumference of the container top and secured the felt on the top with my hot glue gun.
Last, I took put a ribbon around the entire top and tied it neatly in a bow.
