I saw a hint in this month's Goodhouskeeping magazine, and immediately saw it as a cookie bouquet container! Use tin cans, cleaned, with the label peeled off. Use spray adhesive to cover them in wrapping paper, construction paper, wallpaper, etc. Who doesn't throw out those cans into the recycle bin every week? I know I do. And they come in a variety of sizes...I'm looking forward to a trip to the grocery store to see what I can find.
Wow, I wish I'd thought of that one!
Glad to read this now - I just made red sauce, and always use diced tomatoes in it. The empty cans will totally come in handy now!
Thanks for sharing -
Thanks for posting. I can see DH now, asking me about why I am saying them, he'll have that deer staring into the headlights look. There's always lots of stuff around from other craft projects to decorate them.
I saw a variety of scrapbook papers on sale at JoAnn's, so I'm thinking they would work great for this project. I think it'll be an easy way to coordinate the container to the cookies.
That is such a great idea. I saw everyones amazing cookie bouquets in the photo gallery. Im going to attempt one for Easter. I was looking at containers yesterday and I was thinking how expensive they are. Now I cant wait for my supermarkets Can Can sale!!
Great idea! I also go garage or yard saling in the summer and find amazing plant pots, large mugs, ceramic bowls, vases etc for next to nothing. Anything I can run through the dishwasher to sterilize!
