Project 2: Emergency Mother Treat in a Pop up Can
When I saw this project over at Best Bites
I knew I had to make it for my friends who are mothers. They even have the free download to print out this clever tag.
Pop up cans of fruit, I used the 4 ounce size and 7 ounce size
Candy, I used mini Kit Kat Bars and mini Almond Joy bars
hot glue and hot glue gun
Cut out the bottom of the can with a can opener, put aside
Fill inside of can with candy or chocolates
Top of with a piece of tissue paper, so hot glue does not touch candy
Place can bottom back on can and hot glue in place.
Wrap pretty paper cut to size around can
Place free printable on can front
Top can tab with pretty ribbon.
I of course ordered my mom’s flowers a while back from Bloom Garden Shop
a local garden shop and they are amazing!
Hope these two simple gifts come in handy today and any other day you need to put together a quick gift!
