Say that three times fast! LOL!
My daughter's Kindergarten class is having a pajama party today, and each student was to take a small gift that starts with a "p" for a gift exchange. She wanted to take a penguin. Well, seeing that we had less than an hour to try to find a penguin before her gymnastics class last night, I immediately thought of decorating a "p"eppermint "p"atty with a "p"unched "p"enguin. She liked the idea. Except for the peppermint patty part.
O.k. Then what to decorate with a penguin? While we were at the store, she decided she wanted to use a roll of breath mints. Those were peppermint, and they would work just fine.
So she gets dropped off at gymnastics and I was left to figure the whole penguin thing out. Not that I minded. It meant I got to play and not feel guilty about it!
Without further ado, meet Mr. Penguin...
I made the box to hold two rolls of mints, and it wasn't hard to do even without a template. I just put the rolls of mints on my scor-buddy and scored where I needed the folds. The box turned out to be 3/4" x 1 5/8" x 2 3/4".
The penguin was attached to the box with a loop of blue painter's tape so he could be removed and saved by the recipient if they wanted.
M was very happy with my little creation, which made me very happy because she can be quite picky. I hope her classmate likes it too.
