Finally, the details on the mini paint can and the coordinating tags! I just love these little cans that I got from the Container Store. They are clear and can be decorated in lots of different ways. Here I simply cut two pieces of Whisper White, Midnight Muse and Silver Glimmer papers to create a wrap around for the bottom of the container. I made them short enough that they go under the handle attachment points to keep it easy! Before attaching them to the can with Sticky Strip, I stamped the snowflakes from Snowflake Soiree and cut the scallops in the Glimmer Paper with the Adorning Accents Edgelit.
I wanted to create a tag for the can and started playing with the snowflakes in the set and the snowflakes in the new Snow Flurry Bigz Die. What do you know?? They coordinate! Of course!! So I cut some out of the Silver Glimmer Paper and Midnight Muse card stock. I layered two of the flakes on top of the stamped snowflake and then used the inverse flakes to add an embellishment to the can. Basic Rhinestones were are great last detail to add additional sparkle! I’m not normally a “glitter gal” but these products sure to make it easy to love shine and shimmer!
I made a bunch of tags to put into the paint can (along with some other treats). These are so quick and easy! I stamped the snowflakes on Shimmery White Paper and punched them out with a 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and a 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. I just love the words in the Snowflake Soiree set and I chose ‘Merry’ for the back of the tag. Of course a To/From would be great here too. The smaller snowflake was layered using a Dimensional and another Basic Rhinestone finished the centers. I used some White Baker’s Twine for attaching these to bags or boxes.
As many times as I tried, I could never get the sparkle on these to photograph but trust me when I say they are really pretty! I hope you love these little projects. Never too soon to start working on teacher gifts or gifts for the special people in your life!!
Thanks for stopping in today. For those of you in the US, I hope you have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend! See you again soon.
