Decor Elements for Kids: Turtles on Totes

To be completely honest, I had no idea what I was going to do with these Decor Elements when I ordered them.

But when I looked through the new Decor Elements catalog, I just fell in love with these alpahbet blocks! My biggest quandry was choosing which letters to purchase first. The Turtle with the “T” seemed perfect, since my son’s name is Tucker.

So my order included both the Decor Elements “T is for Turtle” in Old Olive (117908, $4.95) and the Scallop Frame in Chocolate Chip (117865, $6.95), and I managed to find a cute Rubbermaid tote with matching green handles at Target for a few dollars.

Did you notice something about the SQUARE frame on my tote? It’s no longer square 🙂 I found that the Scallop Square was a bit too long for the side of the tote. **TIP** It’s easy to omit or adapt parts of the Decor Elements for your project. I cut the bottom scallop line off the Decor Element sheet. Before attaching the top three sides of the square, I cut one scallop off each side. Then I attached the bottom scallop row, matching it up in place of the missing scallop. With the repeating design, it was no problem to get the bottom row on straight.

Actually, I did something similar on the Upsy Daisy Decor Element Tin that I created. If you haven’t seen the video of me creating that tin, you’ll want to check it out.
