Be prepared…the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself (herself) by previoious thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he (she) is never taken by surprise. – Robert Baden-Powell
We LOVE a good upcycle story!
While scrolling on Facebook, we came across a family friend who turned old wedding favors into sewing kits. Thankfully, she agreed to share the project with all of us.
And, this was not only a great repurpose project it was also charitable…
I made tiny sewing kits for Operation Christmas Child boxes out of donated wedding favor tins. These are great for the 10-14 age group kids. -Suzi C
