I Can't "Contain" Myself!

We had a big work meeting where they unveiled this "exciting" campaign so to speak. So to get everyone pumped (?) about it they put this new little logo on a few things. One of the little things was M&Ms. So why am I posting about that here? The little M&Ms came in these cute little tins. As soon as I saw them they practically screamed at me to be decorated! I grabbed 1 extra and have collected a couple more from co-workers. They are all curious to see the finished product now! Here is the one I have made for myself, and my daughter has requested one for herself now as well! (It was always my plan to make her one though!)

Here is mine!


For the top I used the two butterflies from the Love & Happiness Rub-ons. (Expect me to use these a lot!) The lid wouldn't fit on over the paper, so I cut it about 5/8" and used Modge Podge to secure it, then added the ribbons.





Supplies: Berry Bliss Paper (the light pink blooms side), Modge Podge, White Grograin, Pink Gingham ribbon, Love & Happiness Rub-ons


I'm still wondering what to store in it though!


Then I decided I wanted to make another pop-tab can for my boss. It has been so crazy at work these past two weeks that I thought she needed a pick me up. She is so wonderful to work with and has really become a great friend to me. I can't wait to give this to her tomorrow!



This is the reverse side of the Berry Bliss paper I used for my little tin. I used more flowers from the Love & Happiness Rub-ons set for the top circle as well as the flower on the tag. I crimped the paper and then accordian folded it to make the inside filler. Finished it off with ribbon and a tag. I you haven't already seen how to do these, you need a special can opener! You can find the tutorial here.




Here is the top view of all the ribbon around the pull tab and the flowers.










And this is what it should look like when she opens it...full of chocolate!

And once again I probably won't get the sketch or color challenges fitted in tonight, dangit!
