March 19 - Take Out Container

I have a super-sweet friend who sent me a FABULOUS gift this week, and some gifts just call for more than a card sometimes. Her thoughtfulness really brightened my week so I wanted to make her an extra-special Thank You. I had found these cute little clear plastic take-out containers in a package of 6 or 8 (can't remember!) in the gift wrapping section of Target. I put them away in my closet for a rainy day, and am so happy I finally got one out to play around with - they are SO cute!
