Altered Christmas Canister

Christmas greetings, fellow crafters!  This is Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  If you're like me, I know you're busy with holiday EVERYTHING!  For some of the really special people on my list, I like to not only give them a special gift, but also an original gift package.  While I think gift bags are the greatest thing since toast, sometimes that special gift calls for something a bit more, well, unique!  Like this, perhaps....



This is a Kraft container that I've had in my stash of alterable goodies forever, and I pulled it out to decorate for a special friend.

Here's a picture of the supplies I used.  I'll list and link them at the end:

I covered the container with a Christmas paper, keeping the pattern simple and small so it wouldn't overwhelm the die cuts.

Next, I got busy cutting out all those pretty Christmas die cuts:

After that was done, it was just a matter of using some of the Best Glue Ever to attach the die cuts to the container.

The tree was so lacy and delicate that it got lost in the paper, so I backed it with a label die:
In case you're wondering what gift is going in the can, one of my best friend loves socks.  I have a couple of very fun pairs of socks to fit inside.  Perfect!
