I am an unfinished work, and so are many of my projects. This blog is just an odd collection of things I make and do.

Weekly Ad Sorter

I wanted a sorter for the side of my fridge, so I can have a handy place for this week's ad, a recipe or two, and current coupons that I want to actually find and use. Since I eat natural foods a lot, there are only a few coupons, but they get lost easily.

I looked at office supplies and other paper sorters on different websites but they were either not what I wanted, too expensive, or both. Then I went to a church "Give and Take" event and found this ideal basket.

I got some ribbon to decorate it, but ended up not liking the color choice I picked up once I got it home.  My pad of scrapbook paper caught my eye, and I cut out some pieces the right size and glued them on.

I sprayed the whole thing with acrylic sealer before gluing on the flower. It has an orange button center.

Embellished wicker basket
This was a quick, easy, and practically free project.  I did have to buy some sticky-back hooks to hang it on my fridge.  I am having trouble getting it to stay, so maybe a trip to Radio Shack for some really strong magnets is in order.  That will make it easier to take off when I move too.
