a rainbow of polish

my daughter was recently invited to a sleepover with her volleyball teammates.
and i thought it would be fun for her to take a little treat for each of the girls.
knowing how much my two girls love nail polish, i figured it was a safe bet that these girls would love it too. 


of course, i couldn't just send a handful of polishes with her.
i had to find a cute way to package them all up.



supplies

    • nail polish
    • paper crinkle
    • large plastic eggs (i got the 2 multi-colored packs at target, the colors worked perfectly)
    • white cardstock
    • washi tape (found at target and cute tape)
    • plastic treat bags (3.75" x 6")


putting it together:

    • place the crinkle paper and polish inside the egg
    • tilt the top of the egg so you can still see what's inside and attach the back with a piece of tape.
    • to make your topper, trim a 4" x 2.5" piece of white cardstock, fold in half and place a strip of tape across the front
    • put the egg in the bag and finish it off attaching the topper with a couple staples
. . . . . . 
 

what colors are you wearing this spring?
are you a bit of a rebel, sporting more than one color at a time?

  2. This is so cute! I think I might use this next year for my daughter's class.
    One thing I think I would do differently is staple first, then put the colored tape over it, just to hide the staples. I also think the ribbon you find in the dollar spot (Target) for scrapbooking would look cute over the card stock. Thanks for the great idea!
