Baseball Gear Storage Crate

There is a sports-themed contest from My Pink Stamper over at Bitten by the Bug 2. I was trying to think of something practical I could make for my baseball-fanatic-son. Recently, I was also trying to think of a good way to recycle these things:

You know, the things so-yummy-my-family-can't-stop-eating-them clementines come in. I removed the labels, netting, and extra staples (the ones not holding the crate together).

And covered the sides with cardstock and made this:

I used the Sports Mania cartridge for the images, Peachy Keen stamps for the faces (I like how worried the glove is that the mean baseball is comin' at him!), and Pooh Font (Marker) for the lettering.

The practical use for this will be to have something attractive to stow Cade's miscellaneous belts, (clean) socks, other-gear-we-won't mention ;) on top of my washing machine so he knows where they are as he's getting ready for practice or a game.

These little crates could be used for so many fun storage ideas.

Merry Christmas!!
