Tiny Treat Tin

Here is a great way to recycle and make a cool gift. This was a little can of fruit, now it's a super fun treat. All you have to do is take off the bottom (don't open it the usual way with the tab) by using a safety can opener on the bottom. You need a safety can opener to leave the smooth edges. Then you wash it with soap and water....make sure you get all the sticky fruit juice out, and dry it. Now you're ready to decorate. Embellish with patterend paper (I used Cast-A-Spell paper) and ribbon. Add a tag if you'd like. I stamped this with the pumpkin from the Batty for You set. Then when you're finished, turn it upside down and fill with your favorite candy. Then use a thin line of Crystal Effects around the edge and place the lid back on. Let dry. After a couple hours you have a cool new treat. The recipient gets to open it by popping open the top and will be amazed at your creation!
