Tin Can Treats

Tin Can Treats
Tutorial by Our Best Bites

canned fruit with tab tops, suggested size 7-8oz
candies for filling
tissue paper
hot glue gun
decorative paper

1. Use a can opener to remove bottom (non-tab top side) of can, but leave it attached at one point.
2.  Wash cans thoroughly and dry completely.
3.  Fill with candies/treats/trinkets, leaving about 1/2 inch space at top.
4.  Fill remaining space with tissue paper.
5.  Use glue gun to secure lid back to can and let dry completely.
6.  Measure a strip of decorative paper (a child's drawing, marble painting, etc?) the same height as can.  Wrap around the can and secure with tape or glue.
7.  Tie decorative ribbons through the tab on top of can.
8.  Attach tag if desired.

I was thinking these would be a great teacher gift for the beginning of the school year or later on... here's the link for a teacher tag.There are also mother's day tags and father's day tags.
