The Dilemma

I bought a cardboard P from Joann's a while back. Every vignette I put together I always tried to use it but it wouldn't stand up on its own.



Top heavy I guess and it would always fall over. Back to the container of random things it went. Then my light bulb went off. (Glad to know that bulb isn't blown! All it needed was weighted down so I punched out a hole in the bottom if it.



Then put 2 penny rolls in the bottom of it.



Tape up the bottom and a coat of satin nickel spray paint and it's ready to use!

What a fabulous idea!!! I have a bunch of these in my basement just waiting to be "weighed down" :)

What a great idea! I can think of a thousand ways to use this!!! Spell out JOY or NOEL at Christmas for the holidays. Spell our a child's name in their room. OMG!!! Fantastic!!!

Very very very creative idea. I don't know if that's something I could have thought up.

Great job!
