MW Express: Aug 2010 - Altered Pop Top Can
Make Your Own candy tins or favors!
1. I used a 4 ounce can of peaches, peeled off the label and turned the can upside down and opened it. I opened the can at the bottom using a
safety can opener I purchased from Pampered Chef. I drained the can of itscontents and peeled off label. Next, I wash ythe can and lid well and let
it dry thoroughly.
2. With the can turned upside down, I filled it with Hershey's Kisses.Try to use small baggies for food/candy items to help prevent the glue
used to close the can from touching the food/candy.
3. I applied a thin strip of STRONG glue all the way around the outer rim of the cut out lid and then, carefully pressed the bottom lid back onto
the can, wiping away any excess glue immediately. I left the can upside down to dry to dry overnight. I also find it helpful to use a heavy object
to weigh down the lid until the glue has dried.
I added the Jenni Bowlin butterfly and added some stickle dots to my circular tag.
