We all know that gift giving is just as much about the presentation as it is the gift itself. I love this idea of giving gifts in tin cans - super cute, and waaay thrifty. I've seen this idea on several craft blogs and you can check them out, but here's my take on the how-to tutorial.
First - this is VERY important - use the right can opener. This project requires a Safety-Edge Can Opener (like the one from Pampered Chef) - it cuts along the SIDE of the can, while a regular can opener cuts along the TOP - here's the difference in a visual so you can see what I'm talking about:
Then put the can over your treats. Then hot glue the lid back on - I found it worked best to put the hot glue on the rim of the can, not the lid - it was very hard to photograph this step - by the time I snapped a pic, my hot glue had cooled to unusable - so I gave up. I'm sure you can picture the step.
