A Gingerbread Kids Merry Christmas


I hope you are all having the most wonderful Christmas ever with your friends and family!

I thought I would just stop by and share a project that I have been working on to give to some friends as a Christmas Treat!

I started with a clear paint can. This one stands about 5" tall and approximately 3" in diameter.

I printed out some of the papers from our Gingerbread Kids Digi Paper Collection. The best part of using Digi Papers is that you can print them off as many times as you like and you can mix and match  designs for double-sided paper! 
You can see the double-sided designs that I used for the blue paper. 
I wrapped the Gingerbread Kids Papers around the paint can, layering various designs.

I printed and colored several of the Gingerbread Kids Digi Stamps and place them around the paint can so that no matter how the can stands you can see a smiling little Gingerbread Kid. 



I also punched a few holes on each side of the wrap using my Crop-a-Dial, added some eyelets, and laced it up with cream colored ribbon.

 As you can see, I curled back the the tops to reveal yet another layer of Gingerbread Kids Paper.


For the top of the can I cut out a couple of scallops using the same paper and printed and cut one of our Sentiments from our "A Season of Cheer" Collection"

This one is not the best picture, but I wanted you to see an inside view as well. 
Now you can fill this adorable can with all kinds of homemade treats, goodies, candy, small toys or even....some coal! 

After taking these photos, I realized that I should have turned my little gift card into a shaker card/tag. Oh well, next time, because by the time you see this, I will have already filled out the gift card and given this little Gingerbread Christmas Treat Can to someone on my "Nice" list! Or was it my "Naughty List"?

Don't forget! Today is Day 12 of our 12 Days of Christmas Sale!

I hope I have inspired you today!!

Have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
