Recycled Soup Can Gift Pail



Hello everyone! I have another recycling project to show you! This time I used a soup can. I am in recycling mode, because I have another fun home decor project that I did and will be posting it this week. This coming weekend in my town is the city wide rummage sale and I can't wait to see what fabulous stuff I can find to re-purpose!
I made this to enter into Peachy Keen's challenge. This week the challenge is to use a recycled soup can.
I started with an empty soup can and added a beaded handle to it. I did this be using a metal piercing tool and punched holes in the sides of the can. I then added some wire, beaded it, and tied it through the hole on the opposite side. I covered the top and bottom 1/3 of the can with twine and the center is a strip of paper that I stamped the word MOM onto. I paper pieced the bee and added it to the can using pop dots. The tag I cut by hand, stamped the sentiment and lips, and tied it on with some ribbon. I am going to put a gift card on the inside, the perfect little gift pail!

SUPPLIES:
Peachy Keen Stamps- Faceless Bugs and Kiss Me Leprechaun
Aqua Blue Timeless Twine
Michaels Mom stamps, sorry I don't remember the brand
Wire, Beads, and Ribbon

Thanks for looking and have a great night!
