Ok time for finished on the fifteenth, Favecrafts.com monthly Blog hop.
I do want the glass cutter, so if you could please go there and vote for me I would be so grateful. All you have to do is like my Can-tasic blog post on their site.
Ok this one is pure genius. I learned it from my uber-talented paper buddy Jodi.
She says she learned it from someone else.
Who-ever came up with this, is brilliant, and I am having a blast giving presents wrapped this way.
The look of pure puzzlement when you give this to some one is totally worth it.
Then after they open it they are still trying to figure out how it got in there.
You can even package the gift with wrapped candies, M and M's, Beans, gummy candies, and anything else that will give it a little weight and make a noise when it shaken, because they will shake it. LOL turn it upside down and look at it like they have never seen a can before in their lives.
Of course you can always use tissue paper.
You will need:
Christmas paper or scrapbook paper for whatever holiday you are giving this for
Scissors or paper cutter
Double sided film tape
Bows and ribbon
gift that fits in the can
Pop top can (You cut the bottom off of the can)
Side cutting can opener
Packaging stuffing (suggestions above)
Cloth Measuring tape
If you can let it dry completely for a while after wiping out.
With a cloth measuring tape measure around the center of the can for the circumference and add 1" to the measured length.
The measurement on my can is about 12 1/2".
I used scrap book paper and it is only 12" by 12" so I had to piece another strip of paper in there.
Cut the paper to the height of your can.
Add tape to can, press on and take off paper.
Add a couple of more strips about an inch apart, do not peel off paper from those
Cover with paper all the way around.
Press paper to can. There is about a 1/2" left there.
Place filling in the top of the can. Remember we are working from the bottom.
Tuck in the filling away from the edge of the can.
I used the paper I covered the can with to make a tag.
There you go Can-tastic wrapping.
