The first step is actually to get a soup can (Campbells Chunky) that has a pull tab top. Open the can with a can opener ON THE BOTTOM. I left the bottom attached a little bit. Dump (and eat, of course) the contents and wash well.
Next, I took coordinating paper and cut it to size.
I dressed the paper up a bit with stamps, distressing and some writing.
I then applied a generous amount of Mod Podge to the back of the paper and adhered it to the can.
I covered the entire outside of the can with another layer of Mod Podge.
Then, I stamped and distressed some tags to attach.
I wrote the name of the contents on each tag. I PLANNED on writing the recipe on the back but I finished this Christmas gift project on CHRISTMAS EVE, so that didn't happen ;o)
I wrapped my treats in wax paper so they wouldn't get all gross when I glued the bottom of the can on.
Which leads me to the next step: glue the bottom shut!
Tie some ribbon to the top, attach the tags, and there you have it!
Did I forget to mention my helpers?? You absolutely HAVE to have two adorable helpers to make this treat even sweeter :o)Ok, Taylor's seat was seriously not about to fall off the counter. The angle of the picture totally makes me lose my "Mom-of-the-Year" badge. First of all, it is nearly impossible to tip a Bumbo and second, the counter side angles to there was plenty of space to the right of the seat.
