Years ago (9 or so), I got my mother in law something called a Fill A Bowl. I think I first saw it on QVC, then later in Michael's. She loves kitchen stuff, and I thought it was neat. Since then, I've used it for nearly every birthday. The whole thing is made up of clear cavities and you can fill it with anything that will fit. Here it is leftover from a previous birthday.
Removing the old colors...
Now it's ready to stuff. (the bottom circle pops off)
Like I said, you can use anything that will fit. But I prefer to use crepe paper. It's cheap, easy to clean up and comes in basically any color you need.
I just cut a length off, then cut each length into four strips. And begin stuffing.
Ta-da! Here it is done up for the rainbow party. As you can see, the number of spaces didnt work out evenly with the rainbow colors, so I doubled up a purple. This is the top looking in.
And the bottom. You won't see this when it's full of chips, but I stuff it anyway.
Let's just hope I can get this all finished by Sunday!
