TRASH challenge: Juice Top Bling

During Spring Break this year I found a way to incorporate Janice's trash challenge. Instead of tossing the plastic tops to our orange juice cartons, we cleaned them up, made designs on the plastic seals with glue, and then finished decorating with different glitter colors. The pull-tab part goes around the finger, and the plastic seal becomes the decoration. My son was kind enough to model some of our favorite designs:

We decorated a few with magic markers, but all agreed that the glitter made it feel lots more like "real" jewelry.

NOTE: After a day or so, we found that the dried glue -complete with the glitter decoration- slid off of the smooth plastic surface. I simply glued the intact design back on with super glue. Gotta love that stuff...
