easter container...challenge from

this week's challenge: make an easter container.
with a "safe cut" can opener i cut the bottom off a small can that has a pop top lid. emptied the contents and after washing and drying it and saving the bottom i ran pink CS through the CB with the stylized flower embossing folder. inked the raised parts in pink. the darker pink oval was made using my oval nestability die and sets off the bunny....she is made various two different sized ovals..... to finish it off.... all you have to do is fill the decorated can with candy, jelly beans....whatever....being sure to place something with your name on it inside the can. then use a strong adhesive....i use crystal effects... to put the bottom back on. the pink bow on top is looped through the pop top. this makes a unique gift for any occasion....a nifty surprise for the recipient. most are amazed..."how did you get that inside?" my DD put hockey tix inside one for a christmas gift for her honey.....

you can use any sized can that has a pop top lid. just be sure to use the safe opener so there are NO sharp edges.


  1. How darling. The little bunny is just so precious. I can't ever remember you get me one of those can openers, I've got to do that.

  2. What a great container!! Love all the shades of pink

  3. Really cute!

    Recycling cans makes your bunny green!

    Nice job!
