Goodie, Goodie

I’ve had so much fun putting together little goodie treats, but I was really just looking for an excuse to use my new Pampered Chef safety can opener – very kewl.

Here’s the top of the can – look, the pop-up lid is still intact.

Here’s the side.

With the safety can opener, I can open the can from the bottom, empty out the fruit cocktail, clean the can, decorate it, and re-attach the bottom with crystal effects. So . . . without giving too much away, I think this will be really fun for that niece or nephew who really just wants cash, for stocking stuffers, our annual pickle gift, or co-worker treats. It’s perfect for giving lottery tickets, jewelry, silver dollars, candy . . . anything small. (Looks like I’ll be eating a lot of fruit cocktail.)

The rest of the recipe is:

  • Stamp set: Punch Pals
  • Punches: 1 1/4" circle, 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, big tag, scallop, corner rounder
  • Paper: Cutie pie (8 1/2" x 1 1/8") and Bashful Blue (8" x 1 1/2")
  • Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Bashful Blue, Old Olive
  • Ribbon: Stitched Purely Pomegranate, Blue Gingham, Silver
  • Crystal effects and silver eyelets

And, since I was on such a roll with the treat thing . . . I made these sour cream-like holders.

Sourcream

My very talented friend, Chris Twing, showed me how to make these. The new designer wrapper paper is so luxurious, and perfect for this project. Basically, it just takes a 4 1/4" by 5 1/" piece of paper (or 1/4 of a regular 8 1/2 x 11 sheet), some sticky tape, and a crimper. Run adhesive on the very edge of the two long sides and one of the short ends. Put the two short ends together to form a tube. Pinch one of the open ends together and crimp. Then add a treat and pinch the other end together in the opposite direction to form the "twist", and crimp.

I used my Cricket die cut machine to punch out numbers 1 through 25 and attached them with the beautiful taffeta ribbon. So . . . hmm . . . should I tell you whose getting these. I’m so proud of her, I’ll spill the beans. My daughter has been taking 15 credit hours, working two jobs, and still trying to do some charity work. It’s been a very stressful semester for her. So, even though she’s 20, I think she’ll still enjoy counting down Christmas with a treat each day.

Here’s a close-up.

My hostess club ladies are going to make these treats. So . . . ladies, if you’re reading, start picking out some little treats to put in your pop-up cans and sour cream containers.
