I am so late - but I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very safe and Happy New Years!
As winter break approached we got creative thanks to a fellow momma on DFWareamoms.com who posted a GREAT, cheap and easy gift project!
I want to try to tackle some more crafts that I see, I just need to make the time to do it :)
But here is our hand at this Popper can (not sure if that is what it is called but that is what IM callin it hehe)
Here is ours:
What you are gonna need:
A pop top soup can like this:
You are going to want to open it the OPPOSITE side of the pop top part so that the pop top is still intact - so in other words open with a can opener on the BOTTOM! Dont open where the WHOLE thing comes off you want it to be still attached just not fully attached.
Wash can out and do what ever you will with the contains of the can :)
once can is open (from the bottom), washed and dried. Get out your GLUE GUN!
I just love glue guns :)
You are going to want to pick a nice paper to glue on the outside of the can, scrap paper works well - it should look like this:
Fill the can with what ever goodies you want to, candies, gifts cards, what ever ideas you have that will fit in the can that will be fun to receive :)
Next you are going to want to pick out a nice ribbon for the border, glue that on you will get something to look likehttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif this:
Time to glue the can shut! BE SAFE with this one! I found my fingers burned with glue a few times, just take your time. You are going to want to hold the top in place.
Decorate top with strings and things :) we added a tag to determine whose it was and who is was from and also directions to POP THE TOP to see what is inside!
FUN FUN FUN!
EASY and CHEAP!
