Recycled lunchbox

My girls needed lunchboxes and I didn't want to add more plastic to our house so this is what I came up with - an up-cycled ice-cream container.  These are easy to make and better for the environment than buying a new lunchbox. 

To make one (or a few) of your own, you will need:
  • ice-cream container* (or other suitable sized container)
  • scrap of fabric (mine measured about 6 1/2 inches square)
  • mod podge 
* If your container's label is printed onto the plastic and your fabric is light coloured you may need to give it a coat of white paint first, so that the label doesn't show through the fabric.
