Hello! Jennifer Priest here with a treat can to share with you. Now's the perfect time to create some gifts for the holidays - they will be here before you know it! This altered treat can is a great way to upcycle an oatmeal or other cardboard based container and can be customized to any occasion.
This can was a gift from a friend, filled with Chardonnay Wine Brittle--it was super yummy! The distressed edge on the can had a natural, rugged feeling, lending itself to be altered easily with natural toned papers and Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow and Spun Sugar.
I covered the body of the can with a strip of Donna Salazar Designs Mosaics Paper. Then I stamped a sentiment on a shipping tag in ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan for a soft effect and inked the edges of the tag with the same ink. I tied the tag to the tin with waxed twine and a button.
To create the flower on the lid, I diecut several layers of patterned paper and a newspaper style paper using a Sizzix die and Big Shot machine. I dampened the layers with Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow to soften them and to help the paper to curl in the next step. I adhered the layers of flowers to the lid of the can, rolling the petals on a paintbrush handle to curl them. I then added a plastic and metal decorative button to the center.
I sprayed the entire can with Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow and Spun Sugar just to help meld all the colors together. I love how Smooch Spritz dries quickly and adheres to buttons and plastic items! Now I just have to figure out what to put inside...my favorite oatmeal cookies, candied nuts, hard candies, homemade peanut brittle...
