Pop Top Holiday Treat Tin!

I've wanted to make one of these clever little altered pop top tins forever and finally did! Not only is it a perfect gift container for candy, it would work perfectly for a gift card or CASH too! You could make it a birthday theme, Valentine's or whatever your heart desires.

Many of you have probably already tried this, but if not I'll give you the scoop... just take any pop top tin and instead of opening the top, open the bottom with a can opener that cuts the seal and doesn't destroy the can. (I have the Pampered Chef opener) Fill the tin and seal it back up. I used Stampin Up Crystal Effects. Decorate as desired and there you have it . . .a special handmade gift in a tin! :)

For mine, I've used designer paper from a DCWV Glitter Stack and the PaperTreyInk "Holiday Treats" set. The holiday ribbons are from Michaels. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Now I should be packing for our trip, but I'm trying to catch up on some Christmas thank yous. It's been so FUN to spend time stamping again!
Holiday Smiles,
"A brand new year is nearly here,
Open your heart and be of good cheer.
A year full of promise and good things to come.
In your list of resolutions, let good deeds be one.
Help one another and give of your love,
for that will be pleasing to the Father above."

I had never seen one done using a pop can. I've seen the larger ones done and have thought those looked so cute. Love it!

I always think I'm going to try these and never have. Yours is adorable. Love your slide show of cards and Lilly is so adorable in her little hat.
