Pop top container made from a fruit can. This view shows the decorated side. The Cranberry flower and the leaf are on dimensionals. I glued the two pieces of word window punched cardstock together so that you could always see the saying. To make:Find a can that has a *squared* bottom rim--If the can has a rounded bottom rim made that way for easy stacking, it won't work for this project. Anyway, take the can, flip it over and open the bottom end with a saftey can opener ($8 Walmart). Clean and decorate to your liking. I figure you can fill it with just about anything-candy, gift cards, money, small stuffed animal, etc. Next, I want to take this design and make it into a card. Tip: try and put your seams in the back, and if more than one layer, offset layers so that they don't all meet at the same spot, 'cause it makes for a distracting flaw.
