Mothers Day Goodie Container

Mothers Day is coming up - and my mom and sister love chocolate!  So I figured I would recycle a "peanut" container (shown below) to create this adorable "goodie" container to hold all their chocolate!  I can't wait to get it filled up and in the mail this week!  

Peanut container (bought at Walmart)
Delight (1 package)
Ribbon and twine
Paper (I used Stampin' Up)
Flower mold's (molded with Delight)
Hot glue gun and adhesive for the paper

Step one:  Flatten out the Delight product.

Step two:  Cut strips about 1" or so, using a ruler to make the strips as straight as possible.

Step three:  Take the strips of Delight - and start to ruffle around the edge of the lid, going around the entire edge.

Step four:  Take a circle made from the lid itself, to put on the top of the ruffled edge.  

Step five:  Add the paper to the front of the container to cover up the label.  

Step six:  Add the molded flowers to the front of the container on the paper.  

Step seven - When the Delight product has dried - add ribbon and twine around the edge, with a bow on the front!  

I can't wait to go shopping for my mom and sisters' favorite snacks and fill it up for them!  Fun project to make just in time for Mothers Day - and simply by using different paper and molds - can be switched for any holiday or event!  I hope you enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!
