DIY Canvas Catchalls
I used these for a Father's Day craft for the kids. They all painted the canvas, let it dry and then wrapped it for their dad's. They look awesome and I'm sure the dad's are going to love the little tray to hold misc. items.

Wow! Great product and my students loved them!
I couldn't think of anything for my 5th graders to make for thier fathers for father's day until I found these. It was perfect because they are sturdy and you can use any type of marker. The dads loved them too!

Very nice idea and easy to make. Snaps break easily

Easy, Simple and Elegant Father's Day Gift.
I teach 41/2 to 5 year olds. I had them paint the canvas and used the activity to have some color mixing fun as well.
The children enjoyed the craft very much. Once the canvas was dried I coated it with acrylic paint varnish. It sealed the paint and gave the catchall a sheen as well.

cute for Father's
Our 1 1/2 and 2 year old children enjoyed sponge painting them for a Father's day gift.

very bad quality
I bought these for my classroom. I made sure I had extra, incase I messed up putting the children's handprint on them. But the snaps broke off of 9 out of 36, and I am sure more will break after the children take them home. I had to do some multiple times as the snap broke after I did the children's handprint and then I ended up not having enough as the snaps continued to break off. I ended up having to sew some together so that every child had one to take home. I buy projects from your company because they are affordable to do for my entire class. One of the problems with the product was that the cardboard used in the product was recylced (which I fully support recycling) but many of them had lables and printing on it that could be seen through the canvas. Now I understand that the products are not going to be perfect, but I have never had so may of the items be completely unusable and have a vital componant break as to make the item useless.
I will not reorder this item and will not recommend it for anyone, unless you want to remove broken snaps and put in new ones at your cost, or desparately sew them together so that the item actually works as it was designed to.

Don't waste your money
I purchased over 300 of these for a school-wide project. Over 50 of those 300 either had snaps to fall off before they were even started or never even had a snap put on it. Oriental was great and replaced the bad ones, but many of the replacements were just as bad. I lost count of how many more broke once they were snapped the first time or how many the snaps weren't put in correctly, so the tray wouldn't sit correctly, it just wobbled or came unsnapped. I wouldn't waste my money on purchasing these.

Great idea especially for Father's Day but poor quality. Every other one had a snap fall off. The girls were disappointed and so was I.
