Creative Neighbor gifts

We've received a gift yesterday that had THE most creative packaging I have ever seen!  Here it is:

Yes, that is a Pringles can.  They put homemade cookies inside a used Pringles can!  So creative!

I have analyzed this (so I can do it in the future) and here is how they did it:

1. Modge podge scrapbook paper on the can.  You could use wrapping paper too.  I think the scrapbook cardstock looks more professional (IMO).

2. Cut a circle out of cardstock the same size as the top of the lid and glue it on with sticky dots. Finish the lid by attaching a ribbon around the edge.

3. Then attach a cute ribbon handle by punching 2 small holes in the sides of the can, thread a ribbon through and tie a knot on the inside of the can on both sides.

Fill with cookies and deliver!

Also, we got this tag from another family:

They used a photo card (I posted one from Kodak and one from Seehere a few weeks ago) and turned it into a present tag.  What a great idea!  You could even make them general enough to use for a few years no matter what the gift is that you decide to give.
Pin It!
