Dec H & M Blog Hoppin' Time


I made these for this month's H&M Blog Hop. The tall large project is an emptied & cleaned Tomatoe Sauce can I covered with some baby wrapping paper from a baby shower gift. My stepdaughter just found out she is having her 2nd and last child so I will fill this with cotton balls, q-tips, alcohol, lotion, and baby wash as gift to her.
the small shorter project is an altered can of cashews. Shannon says all 3 of her kids love cashews so I will cover the other 2 and give them as part of their gifts this year. I love altering cans and wrapping paper is so much easier to work with than card stock because CS is so stiff it just does not like to make a circle around the cans. I covered 2 cans for my youngest daughter when she had her 1st child and it is so kewl to go to her house and see those covered cans still being used. That was 3 yrs ago.

Wow, that's genius Neva ... a tomato soup can? Who'd have thought! It's perfect and I'm not sure how long cashews would last in my house! Hope the grand kids love 'em!
