Happy Teacher Appreciation Day/Week!!

Hello everyone!!  I have a super cute treat container to share with you today that is made out of a pint paint sized can.  This posted last week over on The Twinery blog.

I started out with a blank can and painted it red and green like an apple.  I rolled up a bit of corrugated cardboard and inked it with a brown color for the apple stem and hand cut out some leaves.  I hot glued them all on and then tied it all up with some Cappuccino and Peapod bakers twines and added a red button in the middle.  The tag is made with THIS die from My Creative Time and the apple is cut with my Cricut Explore.  I added a Thanks sentiment from SRM Stickers.  Here is a closer look.....

I added some woodgrain washi tape to the bottom of the can for a bit of fun texture.......

I filled it with a bag of chocolate candies, but you could fill it with just about anything you wanted to for that special teacher in your life.  I actually homeschool, so my kids have been filling up this can with treats, sweet notes and pictures for me.  I can't wait to see what they have put inside.

What do you think?  Happy Teacher Appreciation Day/Week to all the teachers out there!!
