Tin Can Mummy



Do you save bottles, tins and containers like I do?
I never want to throw any type of container away because I always think that I'll come up with a use for it.

How about potato chip tins like pringles?

They make perfect cookie tins, especially for giving to friends & family!

Here's how I turned a pringles Walmart Brand potato chip tin into some halloween gift giving bling.













      Hand tear white card stock into strips.
Distress the edges with brown ink & a sponge.


I used double sided tape to cover the tin with the paper strips.

I had some raffia lying around so I wrapped it around the tin as well.


For the eyes I used a 1" & 1 1/4" hole punch with white & black card stock.
And I then glued on black buttons.


Add a gift tag & decorative ribbon and you're all set!

But wait!!!
Don't forget to bake some cookies to fill it with!




Mmmm, these were good. Unfortunately they are not homemade :(
Just store bought Pillsbury cookies with a few halloween sprinkles on top.














Imagine, Improvise & Invent

Ooh! Great idea. For a second I thought I should do this for all my co-workers for christmas with the mini cans, but then I realized how many cans of chips I'd have to eat - probably not the great idea I thought it was. :P Your mummy is super cute though!
