We have a birthday party to attend this evening, and not a lot of cash lying around for presents. My daughter wanted to make something for her cousin, so we baked Honey Cookies last night and then made a decorative can to keep them in.
We have done this project before (back when this blog was only a month old), so if you haven’t been through the archives, you’ll enjoy seeing the photos from the original cookie can post. Can you spot any differences in our artwork? We happened to still have some of that great metallic multi-colored ribbon and even the same pair of jeans we cut for the fabric on the top. I’m sure our little birthday girl will love it!
This is a great gift idea for the holidays if you have a ton of family to bake for and not enough cash to buy them all presents. You could fill them with most anything small. We used a coffee can, but the original idea used toilet paper rolls… so I guess it all depends on how big your “stuffing” is.
