Boo 2 U!

I just finished these up earlier today and delivered them! There were a few more but I figured this would be enough for picture purposes! lol

I started out purchasing the quart sized paint cans & openers from Sherwin Williams. The clerk kinda looked at me strange when I asked to buy sooo many! lol

TIP: Something I learned while picking up the cans that I would love to share with you---the cans are cheaper to buy at Sherwin Williams than they are at Menards---this really surprised me too!

I used the Kraft wrapping paper that comes on a roll from any office supply store and cut enough for each can. Then I wheeled on the Jumbo Spooky Skyline from SU! with the basic black jumbo ink cartridge. Then I stamped the 'boo' using the 'Big Deal Alphabet' and the SU! white craft stampin' pad. I used a hot glue gun to adhere each strip of paper to the cans. I used blue grosgrain ribbon to wrap around each can and tied it tight. Then I attached a small piece of black grosgrain ribbon and a small piece of orange grosgrain ribbon to each side of the blue grosgrain tie made. The only orange tags were punched out using the SU! tag punch, and the design is stamped in basic black using the 'Tags so Much' hostess SU! stamp set. The little green galore name tags were punched out using the Small Oval punch from SU!. Both of the tags were punched with the 1/16' circle punch and tied around the grosgrain using the silver cord and this was just tied in with the grosgrain ribbons.

Now to the top of the can---- Because I was making sooo many I wanted to keep it relatively simple. I cut out Brilliant Blue circles with a circle maker and stamped the two images in basic black from the SU! Booglie Eyes stamp set. Then I just used the SU! liquid glue and SU! Dazzling Diamonds glitter on each of the cute little spiders. I attached it to the top of the can and called it complete.

I filled each can full of yummy candy treats that I purchased in the Halloween candy isle at the store! Mmm!

So each recipent could open their can I attached the can opener to the side of each can. I ran a longer piece of silver cord through the hole on each can opener and stuck the end of the cord under the lid before I closed them---this held the can opener in place and the longer cord will allow the recipent to have enough cord that they can open the can with the can opener....gosh that was alotta' cans in that sentence!! lol

Hopefully the recipents will enjoy opening their can of Halloween goodies! These would be great to stamp and decorate for birthdays or really any kind of celebration in your life!

~Enjoy & TFL~
