Soup Can Gift

Do you have a member of your family that just can't keep their hands off the presents? Who just can't resist peeking and pulling at the paper? Well, that is my sister, believe it or not! We all love to guess our presents, and over the years she has gotten a bad rap for peeking and pulling before the big open.

So . . . . I wrapped her present in a soup can! Yep, a soup can. I have one of those 'safe' can openers that cut along the edge of the can and create a clean edge. So after I washed out the soup can, I inserted her present and then sealed the top with Crystal Effects (you could also use Tombo Adhesive, or another strong adhesive), and then decorated the can!

Here is a shot of the top of the can. I used my Circle Scissor Plus to cut the circle to fit inside the lid of the can. No peeking at this gift! :)
