I knew I had to try it!
Here's what mine turned out like:
So, you get little tin cans & you open them with a can opener (the kind of opener shown in the picture that doesn't leave the lid sharp), fill them with treats, close them up again, and give them as a surprise-inside-gift!
Start with your cans (preferably the kind with a tab on top) & a can opener. I used lunch-sized fruit cup cans.
Remove the label and open the cans at the bottom (empty the can and wash and dry) and fill them with whatever treat or gift you want to give.
Bunch up some tissue paper to fill the bottom of the can (this prevents hot glue from getting on your treat/gift in the next step).
Glue the "lid" back onto the bottom.
Cut scrapbook paper to fit your can and cover it to make it look cute. The messy glue job is fairly well hidden at the bottom of the can.
Once you've gotten this far, you can dress up your cans with ribbon on the tab and label the side of your cans!
I made my own labels to fit my small cans, but you can find a cute printable at Our Best Bites if you're using the right size of can for them!
I can't wait to use this idea for other things- I think they're so fun!
