Hi friends and Happy Tuesday!
Here are some pretty Gift Wrap Containers I made using Pringles Cans. These will make great containers to put homemade cookies, gift cards and other goodies in.
I can’t take credit for coming up with the idea at all as I have seen friends do this too. I went to search on Pinterest for a source and there were soooo many great versions of this too. It’s just a great idea I wanted to try and share too. My daughter and her friends LOVE Starbucks so I thought this would be a great idea to put some homemade cookies inside or some socks and nail polish and the Starbucks card on top.
Here’s how easy it was. I emptied the chips into a ziploc bag and my daughter will pack them in her lunch. I may have sampled a few just to make sure they were ok…lol. I cleaned out the insides of the containers.
I then got out some fun gift wrap and cut pieces bigger than my cans.
You can use tape or white glue or one of my favorites to use is Mod Podge. I use an old paint brush to dab a little on the edges and fold over the sides of the can.
I then cut snips on the ends that were sticking out which makes it much easier to fold and get a very clean look. I added Mod Podge and then folded the ends over nicely.
I then tied up some pretty bows. I love wired ribbon and highly recommend it. You can find it all over at places like Stats, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Target and thrift stores are great resources too. I usually will find a big bag of 10 or more bolts and other craft items for $5 for the whole bag when I am thrifting. If you see that buy it. It’s a great deal. Then you’ll have it handy when you need it.
I then put on my apron and whipped up some batches of homemade cookies. Ok shhhh me and Vons made these…lol, but I will bake before the holidays to take to friends.
I added some gift tags and used my glue gun and added a dab of glue to the top of the cans for the bows.
That’s how easy they were and a great way to use or reuse your Pringles cans. I can think of other versions of this I may try too, like the big popcorn containers too.
Hope you like them. If you have any great gift wrapping tips will you please share them with me in the comments. I would love to hear.
