Candy Jar?


I love to drink the sugar free drink mixes, kind of like Crystal light, but the WalMart brand. And I throw these containers out all the time. But the other night I took a good look at it & said "hey I can do something with this" So into my craft room I went! I covered it with printed paper that my sister had given me, then ran the purple paper with the Top Note die (SU) through the cuttlebug, then used Nancy Kubo's digi image. Added a few flowers with a bling & there I have it a RAK for someone!!! Filled it with Dove chocolates.....

Very cute, I tried something similar with the small Pringles chips containers. But that didn't go too well, coz chips are oily. Spend so much time wiping the inside to get it clean. I like your idea better. Thanks for sharing.

Too cute! And a GREAT IDEA!!! I always throw containers away cause I'm always thinking I'll never use it and I hate hoarding (but I do...hee). When I finally have an idea, I no longer have the containers! Ugh! LOL!

This turned out great Denise! I did this with a pringles can and filled it up with Brads. The containers fit perfectly. =)
Hugs,

Very cute. I take one of these with me to my workshops that I altered, it holds my ink pens. I used the crop-a-dile and a couple of jumbo brads at the top on the sides and ran a ribbon though it for a handle.
