Do the Can-Can

Looking for a unique way to present a gift or gift card this Valentine's Day? Do the Can-Can!
These are fun and simple to make: Use a clean-edge can opener (from Pampered Chef) to open any soup/fruit/vegetable can, wash and dry the can. Cans with the pop-top lid are fun to use and easy for the recipient to open...don't pop the lid open, just remove the whole lid using the can opener!

Cover the can with Designer Series Paper and/or roll an image (shown here using the I {Love} Love Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel). Spray adhesive is good for applying your paper to the can.

Add glitter, ribbon, accessories, etc. Don't forget to decorate the top of the can, too!
And since it says Hugs & Kisses (from the Love You Much stamp set), what better way than to encourage that display of affection with the contents of the can:
Once you have filled the can with your gift, seal the lid back on the can using Crystal Effects (from Stampin' Up!, of course). The recipient will have to open the can again with a can opener :)

That is so cute--what a great way to recycle cans. I may need one of those from pampered chef.
