Waltzingmouse Pajama Party Challenge #2

Hello! I am staying up late to play at the WMS Pajama Party tonight! The second challenge is Wrap It Up Warm - to make a gift bag or box with a cozy feel. I have had several small Pringles cans sitting around, just waiting to find a use for. My husband takes one each day in his lunch, so they are accumulating quickly! I thought this would be great container for some Christmas candy to give as a gift for neighbors. With the plastic lid, it would stay fresh. So I wrapped the can with some kraft paper stamped with the stitched quilt block from Secret Santa in red. I stamp a couple of the sentiments from the same set along the top and bottom. I also cut a circle with my circle Nestabilities and stamped it with Elf Approval stamp for the lid.  I think the kraft paper paired with the stitched block looks very warm and cozy!

Can't wait to see what others come up with! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Fabulous gift box & a very clever idea for upcycling :)
