Gift Idea!


I have posted this in years past but wanted to share this idea again for those that might have missed it! It is simple and a big hit! I bought new, unused paint cans at Lowe's, assorted Christmas ribbon, red craft paint, retro graphics, and scrapbooking adhesive. Line the can with wax paper and fill it with caramel popcorn, or cookies, or candy...
Enjoy!

Free retro Santa graphic to use.

I've been looking for something fun for neighbor gifts (I always stress over neighbor gifts!)and this might be it. Annie is so excited to be invited to participate in your boutique next spring. I'll be buying a plane ticket so I can come too. I've been MIA for the last few weeks. BUSY time of year! Mimi
