Repurpose Foil Seal Tops into Quick Gift Tags and Ornaments

MYO Ornament from foil seal

These flashy round foil pull off seals are perfect for making into a quick gift tag or Christmas ornament. Do you recognize this otherwise discarded product? Some food items contain a foil seal like this under the screw on top. Children can easily make these into ornaments. They can even add their own message too by “carving” onto the soft aluminum material. A ball point pen works well. Or use anything with a firm but rounded tip. You could also write on them with a permanent marker.MYO Foil Gift Tag

I like that the silver of the foil gives it a bling look.

MYO Foil Gift Tag Carved Aluminum

The aluminum Chipotle bowl cover is perfect for this purpose too. It is thicker than regular aluminum foil but still soft enough to scratch/ carve into if desired.

These pictures should get you started. Be creative!

Fun in the Making’s New Look

New Fun in the Making Theme

I hope you enjoy the new look of Fun in the Making. The new theme enhances the user experience on mobile platforms. It has been many years since the Fun in the Making blog launched, and in that time, much has changed with the web. Fun in the Making has increasingly been visited by the global community on mobile devices and it was not an optimal experience on their smaller screens. It was time for a redesign to ensure Fun in the Making’s rich content was accessible across a wide range of screen size and resolutions. Fun in the Making’s new look is derived from the latest 2012 Theme. It is a mobile first, responsive design that adjusts the content to match the viewport of the computer or device that Fun in the Making is being viewed on. Although we customized some of the theme’s layout and style, the full credit for this theme goes to the WordPress organization for providing a strong, modern foundation from which to extend.

Trash Song Music Video: An Anti-littering Song

I want to share this really cool anti-littering video made by my activist daughters Sage (15) and Jade (12). Lyrics were written and performed by Jade. The instrumental composition was created and recorded by Doug Smith. Sage filmed and edited the video.

Jade was inspired by the efforts of her grandmother Louise, who came up with the term OPG (Other People’s Garbage) and has been picking up OPG along the Gulf Coast of FL for her whole adult life.

We all need to take pride in our natural areas and “pick it up, pick it up.”
