Xyron Design Team Project - Re-purpose an old project!For my first official assignment for the Xyron Design team I was given the task of taking an old project and find a new use for it. When I opened the box to see what my assignment was I was a little excited by what I found, a clear acrylic napkin holder along with a couple of other pieces but I'm saving those for next time. My kids though that it was a big paper clip!!!! lol. I played around with the holder and in the end decided to keep it's general purpose as a holder but remove it from the kitchen and use it in the bedroom.
If your kids are like mine then they LOVE their bedtime stories and normally the books end up on the floor by morning or under the pillow for some sneaking reading by torch light. So I think I have a pretty nifty solution to help keep those books in order and ready for bedtime. I turned the napkin holder into a 'Bedtime Stories' holder.
