Soup-Can Gift Packaging
So technically this is a Christmas gift, but it's only the packaging, so I can post it early!
I had soup for lunch a few days last week, and instead of opening the top with the pull-tab, I used a Pampered Chef can opener on the bottom… Washed it out, peeled off the label, and then I had this.
(The cats like helping.)
All I did was cut a strip of paper to fit around the can, and hot glue it on…
(Don't try to glue the whole thing at once with low-temp glue. It will dry before you're done putting the glue on, and then you'll have to peel the glue off the paper and start over!)
Added some ribbon I had on hand at the top and the bottom, to hide the gap from cutting the paper unevenly… Filled the can, and used super-glue to glue the can bottom back on.
And made a simple tag with more scrapbook paper and ribbon, and I was done!
Husband thought I was really awesome for coming up with this, and then seemed disappointed when I said it wasn't my idea…
