1st Christmas Paint Can

I also altered this paint can. I bought the pain can from Michael's and got some Christmas paper to embellish it with. I used the red sticky tape to stick the paper onto the can and then decorated away. I used my SU punches for the HO HO HO tags. This was really to cover up the gap the paper didn't cover and think it worked perfectly. I got bells to add to the base of the handle and added ribbon to the handle itself. I also cut a circle for the can top and embellished it with a scalloped punch!

I stuff the bottom with some shredded paper and then wrapped our baby nephew's Christmas Jammies and Bib in a way that you could see "baby's first Christmas" through the can towards the top! I also nested a gift card on the inside to make this gift complete! I really hope they liked this and were able to use the jammies as they were super cute!

Sorry about the last picture.. I really just wanted to show you the bell hanging on the base of the handle! I really need to work on getting my pictures taken for my projects a bit better!

Let me know what you think! This was a fun project.. Definitely will be doing more of these!
