I've saved these containers for a while (no surprise there). I knew they would turn into something! These are the containers that hold the little tubs of drink powder.
This particular brand has a plastic label that just peels right off. There aren't any marks or residue left from glue.
Now it's a clean slate for any decoration.
If you are going to cover the whole container, measure the height ...
and the distance around the tube.
You can also decorate the top of the container. I used my hole punch to make a hang tag too (last week's Tool Time).
One idea would simply be to use ribbon to wrap around the container with a little glue for a candy cane look.
Add your matching gift tag...
Fill with your favorite cookies or small present and it's the perfect neighbor, teacher or hostess gift.
How about a little snowman...great for a child's gift or cookies too.
For a little more sophisticated look, I used an old sheet of music.
Add a simple hang tag...
matching ribbon and you're done!
The possibilities for these cookie containers are endless...let your imagination run with it.
Speaking of cookies...I'm guest posting a cookie recipe today over at Pleasant Home. You have to stop by for all of Jodi's wonderful ideas...it's been a great week.
