Sock and Roll Sushi


I don't know about you, but I love packaging. I'm always trying to think of innovative ideas for used packages, like this plastic take out container. Inside are six pairs of baby socks, 3 black, 3 white. All I did was roll one white sock up and roll a black sock around it. Then I secured it with a rubber band on the bottom. I used felt to cut out the fake tuna, green grass and ginger. To keep the gift in theme, I added a child's pair of chopsticks. Wouldn't this be a great baby shower gift. From first experience as a mother, I can tell you there's never enough socks. Don't ask me why.

When making this, keep in mind you want your lid to shut. That's why children's socks work best. Drop me a line if you have questions about this project. You can find my e-mail in the profile.

This is seriously one of the cutest ideas I've ever seen! I'm designing and Asian-inspired baby shower right now - and I don't think a more appropriate gift than this could possibly exist - thank you!!

Oh, I just love it...when I found this link, I was fully expecting to find a high price tag (and willing to pay since it's soooo cute ;-) and am amazed and how cute and simple this idea is. Very creative, I love it...and will be doing this for my next baby shower for sure. Thanks a bunch for the tutorial!
