This is my first attempt at a paint can. I had a lot of trouble with the handles, I think it would have been much easier if I'd been able to remove the handle!
The Simply Scrappin' Kit made it really easy to decorate the can.
I think I'll have to do more now, it was fun once I got over the hard part. This is the whole gift, I included a Post-It note holder for Mariko's mum to write notes to pop in the can to write up at a later date. I found the poem on the lid on a thread here in SCS. It goes:
Baby books are great ideas,
But sometimes you're too busy.
Living with a little one
Can put you in a tizzy.
Milestones pass too fast at times
to find the proper page,
So jot a note of each event
with date and baby's age
(like "took 3 steps on April 3rd"
or "teething - 5th November)
then drop it in this memory can
To help you to remember.
Wish I'd had one of these once I had more babies- I wrote EVERYTHING down for the first, but poor #4 really missed out!
