Birthday Can Collage

Posted by Picasa

Happy Birthday! This is the coolest idea I have seen in a long time. 1st I must give credit to"Obsessed with Cupcakes" that is where the idea come from. Go check out their blog. They have great how-to pictures. I started with a can of pineapple and ended up with a great birthday gift. I used scrapbooking papers, stickers, glitter, ribbon & a tag. It is filled with hersheys kisses and ribbon. This is a gift/card for my mother in law's 60th Birthday. The can opener is from Pampered Chef, it unseals the can...so then it can be resealed. The recepient will still be able to open it with the pull tab (after you have resealed it with hot glue). It was a fun way to make a unique gift. Let me know what you think. I would love to hear your comments.

I love the collage! You did a great job!!!!
Well, thanks for visiting my blog and it was great to see your version of the can! I usually use the small pampered chef scoop http://www.pamperedchef.com/our_products/catalog/product.jsp?productId=237&categoryCode=BK to make cookies to put in the tin. This scoop is a MUST have!
