Lately I've made a couple altered pop top cans to hold birthday gifts or money. I've kept them on the simple side, because they were both for young guys. Plus my hubby and I both thought it was more fun to keep them looking like a can. If I ever do one for a girl though, I know I'll have to get the embellishments and glitter out. :)
here for the instructions to make these fun cans. It takes you to SplitCoastStampers. I think these would be such a fun surprise to receive in the mail and be able to pop the top off and find a gift or money inside.
One of the cans is a gift from my husband and his students to someone. My husband had each student write a note to the person and then he shrank the notes on the copier. The notes are in the can in a tiny envelope. We added a small magnifying glass for reading the notes. :) Plus a gift card and some candy, of course.
I loved my One Touch can opener even before I found out that I could use it to make these gift cans. But being able to use it to make these gift cans is such an added bonus. :)
- My husband's back injury has improved enough for him to drive short distances around town now.
- Friends who mowed, trimmed and cleaned up the back yard for us without being asked, because Mark can't do that right now.
- A terrific phone visit with my mom. I sure do miss having her here.
