gone are the days of a simple shoebox working as a mailbox for a school valentine's day party. parker wanted a spaceship this year.
i think it all started when chris told the story of how as a kid he wanted his box for valentine's day to look like a spaceship from 'battlestar galactica'. he got so frustrated that he couldn't get the tin foil to go just right. chris and my mother in law aren't what you call the crafty type, so they couldn't figure out how to make it work.
i think that is why chris has so many problems now.
of course, parker has NO IDEA what 'battlestar galactica' is/was. but he was going to make a spaceship this year. and it was going to rock.
and i have to say-this was pretty cool.
it started life as a half gallon of chocolate milk container. we took the spout off and hot glued all the paper on.
the door on the side of the milk carton opens up so his friends can put the cards in. then the top lifts off so he can get them out.
like the title says, he gets his craft-ness from my side of the family!
