I saw this awesome and cute idea to make tissue pack covers on Thrifty Crafty Girl (I really like her blog because she makes easy and practical types of crafts that I like to make). When I saw them I just had to make them that very week. I LOVE those little packs of tissue and I'm always buying them at Dollar Tree because you can get a 10 pack. This craft is super easy and she has a great tutorial. These are the ones I made: one for me, one for my husband to match his backpack (he was pretty excited about it (not)) and one for my son's diaper bag. They are perfect for getting a tissue out when you need to keep quiet (like in church or a meeting) and not have everyone hear noise from the plastic wrapper.

So I'm sort of obsessed with having lots and lots of kitchen utensils, particularly wooden utensils and rubber scrapers. I get my rubber scrapers at Dollar Tree and they are amazing - high heat silicone and everything. I have 4 of them because I hate it if they are in the dishwasher and I can't use them. I also have a million wooden spoons of every length and various other wooden utensils.
Anyway, I've been using a #10 can to store them and over time it was getting very crowded in there and the can was looking beat up. I think they make great utensil holders but I needed more and I wanted them to look cute. I can't justify buying lots of fun and different colors of spray paint so I just used what we had from our dresser and fortunately it matched our kitchen counters. I painted two of them and now my counter looks much better and I can actually get my utensils in and out again. Someday when I can buy more spray paint then maybe I will paint designs or stripes or something, but for now they look much better.
