Made this for my DS preschool teachers for Christmas. They are requesting that we send in supplies for the school to use rather than individual gifts for all the teachers. I plan on filling with supplies requested such as glue sticks, tape, paper clips, etc...I covered with 12x12 scrapbooking paper found at AC Moore, wrapped around crimped orange and then a band of red. Cut out individual images, matted on various colored cs nand attached to red/orange band. Attached letters and numbers printed from computer, matted on various colored cs with colored brads, placed colored brads between images on orange/red band. (Did that make any sense?!)

I think that is an AWESOME idea! I will have to case it and come up with something for my dd's 1st grade teacher! I wonder what I can fit in a paint can! Does anyone ever put cooked items in these?? Maybe in ziplocks?

Go as far as you can see, and when you get there, you will see farther. ScrappinGallery

photocropper....I just sent you a LONG PM on paint can uses...as for cooked items...I have put cookies & little loaf breads inside them. For the cookies I just lined the can with wax paper...cookies seem to go pretty quickly & for the loaf breads...I wrap them individually in plastic wrap then put in the can. As long as you use a NEW can & not a recycled one, I think it should be fine ~ JMO ~ Smiles ~ Kelli
