Cleaning up

Our group worked on a little cleaning caddy.
There is a tutorial from Joanne Swanson, with printies and a pattern for a dust pan. She suggests using a restaurant jelly container for the caddy.

Trim the edging, then cut a strip of cardboard a little smaller than the length of the container.
Now, score a vertical line about 2 inches up the strip. Fold the strip over and trim the edges.
Measure how tall you wish the handle to be. (approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inches). Score this measurement on either side of the first fold
Fold along score lines.
 The strip should now look like this.
Glue the middle together.
Trim the tabs so they fit inside the jelly container.
Cut holes for the handle.
File the handle smooth and maybe file the corners.
Glue the cardboard to the jelly container. Gesso and paint. I used Patio paint.

Here is my finished caddy. 
The gloves are cut from paper, painted and podged.
