Altered Pringles Can

Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Company is having an exciting Christmas in July Blog Hop/Challenge (it is really Christmas in July/August. Each day there is a fun tutorial on making/altering something for the upcoming Christmas season. Today is the last day (Day 5) and the challenge is a wonderful Advent Calendar. You have until August 10th to participate if you want to be eligible to win the great prize (it is a big one) but to win you have to do all 5 days.


I loved day 3's project which is an altered Pringles can. You can fill it with cookies, candy, dollar bills, gift cards, etc. I decided to try it and this is what I came up with:



You could also leave the Pringles in the can and give it as a gift and maybe add a gift card to you tag. It could be changed to a birthday or get well (fill it with cough drops and vitamins) container too.

I used the MFP Please Snow Stamp Set and the Holiday Tag Set.

  12. Wow, this is so pretty, and so far from a Pringles-can-look! Love the frosty, wintry feel of it.
