Duct Tape Flower Rings
My oldest daughter REALLY wants an ipod touch. And she has really mean parents who won't just go out and buy one for her. They are making her earn her own money to buy it.
She loves duct tape. Actually, she's obsessed with duct tape! Several months ago, she learned how to make duct tape flower rings. They're adorable! When we talked about ways she could earn money, she decided to try selling her rings to people we know. They turned out to be a BIG hit!
Here's a sampling of the rings she's made.
Some people like their 'bling' big...
And if you're like me, you prefer smaller 'bling'.
So far, she's had a hard time keeping up with the orders people have placed. I have a feeling she'll stay pretty busy this summer making these! And it won't be too long before she has enough money earned to buy herself that ipod touch. My hope is that along the way, she'll learn a new appreciation for how hard her Dad works to support our family, and that it really does take HARD WORK to get the things you want in life. I think she's well on her way!
