A Simple Gift

Today I wanted to share a little gift I like to make. Sorry this isn't a great picture, but it's the only one I have of this item.(The tag on the container says "Yum Yum") It is an altered Crystal Light container. This particular one I made a while back and gave to a friend as part of her b'day gift. It was filled with peanut butter filled Hershey Kisses. You could fill it with all sorts of different things. Small cookies, bath fizzies, truffles, pens or pencils, etc. These would also be great for any holiday. Just customize your container to fit the holiday. Use halloween stamps or scrapbook paper, tie on a spider ring with ribbon and you have a cute gift. Their also pretty simple to make.

This is how you make it:
*Measure your paper to fit around the container and cut to proper size
*Stamp paper or use scrapbook paper
*Put sticky strip(some people call it bologna tape) around the edges of the paper and
a couple strips in the middle
*Wrap paper around container. (The tape is VERY strong)
* String tag or other embellishments and tie around container
* Punch out circle for top of container and stamp or embellish
* Fill your finished container

What a neat idea! I love it! I'm saving instead of tossing my next empty Crystal Light container. :)
