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!  

Supplies:
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

Directions:
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!
