I remember having a little vase of silk flowers in my room when I was growing up and I remember making several crafty pencil holders way back then too. Looking at my yogurt cup I thought what a great size for holding pencils, paintbrushes, and flowers. It seemed like a quick and easy way to make some seasonal decor, not to mention a great way to recycle!
After cleaning the container (of course, tho it still smells fruity), I used copy paper to make a pattern of the Yoplait yogurt cup and to cover it as a base layer to help hide the bold label. You could probably use acrylic paint as a base layer but I didn't want to go looking for any late last night. I then covered it with scrapbook paper. The cardstock I used for the image was alittle heavy to just tape on so I poked holes into the container with an exacto knife and used to brads to help secure it to the cup. I finished it off with ribbon at the top and bottom to cover the paper edges.

Another quick & easy project I thought of was the place setting cards I've seen others make for the holidays. Here's 2 that I did up.
The names were stamped using the Just Rite Curlz 50pt Font and gold embossed. The leaf embellishments were an afterthought to help cover up a booboo on Scott's : )
