The Magic Can

I’ve been saving pull-top cans for over a year now, and have finally gotten around to making “magic cans” out of them. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long – these are super easy!

The key is to use a safety can opener to open these cans on the BOTTOM. That leaves the pull-tab intact so that your recipient can stare in amazement and wonder how in the world you were able to put a treat inside the can. I bought my can opener from a home goods direct sales company but you may be able to find them anywhere – they cut the can with a smooth edge which makes it easy to glue back on using Crystal Effects.

So after washing the can, I filled the inside with a surprise or two and then crimped small strips of cardstock to provide cushion and filling. I adhered the bottom back on to the can with Crystal Effects and then wrapped the body of the can with Designer Series Paper. Added a cute stamped tag from the Cute By the Inch stamp set, wrapped the can in some luscious Poppy Parade ribbon (seriously, you have to feel this ribbon – it’s so soft!), and I had an adorable and surprising gift for my hostess.

If you’d like hands-on experience making this can, I’d be happy to show you and your friends how to make them. Contact me to schedule a workshop, I’ll bring all the supplies which makes it super easy for you!

    I am *still* in amazement at how you did this : )

    and FYI, you can get safety can openers at Bed, Bath, & Beyond and Target as well.
