Never throw anything away!

Okay well maybe that is a little unrealistic. But those of you who have seen my boys in swimsuits know they could stand to put on a few pounds so my pediatrician told me to put this in their milk each morning for some extra calories. We collect these cans at quite a pace and so today I was determined to make use of them.
This is the first one I made. I don't really love it, but it was a first try. I figured I could put cookies/treats in it for a birthday gift.

This one turned out a little cuter. I'm not sure what I'll do with it. The lids to the cans are blue and not the right blue for this paper so this can will have to serve a lid-less purpose.

So cute!! You wouldn't believe the things I have "saved" in my craft room.. a Pringles can, various sized cans w/ lids, formula cans, etc. It's a great way to reuse things. Yours were adorable... maybe after you filled them, you could just stuff in some tissue paper to top it off, instead of a lid! Thanks for sharing!!

Great idea.
