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!!
