Halloween Gift Container

With Halloween coming up, I thought it would be fun to share an inexpensive idea for a gift container. You can purchase these clear containers at Michaels for only a few dollars and then decorate them with the Halloween coordinating papers.

Here are the instructions:

1. Use the Fancy Frames cartridge to cut out a frame and the coordinating shadow layer. I cut the shapes to 2.5″.

2. Use the Cake Basics cartridge to cut out the monogram letter. I cut the letter to 1.5″

3. Adhere to the canister with foam dots to add extra dimension.

4. Tie ribbons to the handle, decorate the cover with coordinating papers, and add flowers.

I hope you enjoyed the project and have a great weekend.

Thanks,

Diana McGraw
