An Altered Almond Can for Easter

Top 3 Pick at Through the Craft Room Door

Coffee of the Day - Caribbean Hazelnut

I made quite a few gifts to either send out or give away for Easter this year. the one I'm sharing today is something Tyler will be taking with him tomorrow as he heads to PA for a visit with his girlfriend's family.

I have altered another almond can, this time for Easter. it is filled with yummy pastel M&M's. I hope they like it! :) if nothing else, they will enjoy the treats inside!!!

someday I will think to take step by step photos, but I'm usually on a time crunch when making these. sorry, for those of you who have asked in the past. will try to do it the next time I make one.

decorative papers are all from various collections by Basic Grey, silk flowers were purchased at Michael's & Pat Catan's, and mulberry flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. buttons are from my stash.

ribbons & trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon include:
yellow circus dots
pink silky crush
violet burlap string
Elise crochet lace

you can't really tell from the photo, but I used a pretty doily die from Sizzix under the ribbon spool and outlined several of the pieces in stickles. yes, the bag of M&M's really does fit inside! :)

thanks so much for stopping by! I'll see you tomorrow with another Easter project.
