Gift Card in a Can

I have known about this idea for years but never made one. I needed a quick shower gift  and didn't want the standard giftcard in a card idea. 

Very quick - giftcard in a can - - - I love it and plan to make a lot of these for Christmas. I already have ideas how to fill some of these for my grandangels this year.

Scrapbook paper is perfect - you don't even have to trim very much. These particular Pringles cans do not have the "pop tab"   - these have the paper pull tabs - I will make sure I find the pop tabs for my next ones. I think they will will be more fun for the girls to open.

This one is for a wedding shower - so I embellished with 3D stickers with Bliss & Happy Life. I added a flower on top for good measure and a little bit of scrap ribbon. 

How cute would this be for a baby shower? Cute paper - lots of curled ribbon - and filled with baby socks, bibs, etc -  along with a gift card? You can stuff quite  a bit in these tall cans!

So just carefully cut out the bottom of the can with a can opener and empty out the chips - and wipe clean. I know some people hot glue the bottom back on but why bother? Just put the plastic lid on the bottom that came on top of the can!! They all come with one! Simple Simple!
