Gift TUBES Altered Art...

....Never letting anything go to waste...and always recycling SOMETHING...these Gift tubes are created from faux CRYSTAL LITE canisters ( Wal-mart brand).....I have mega quantities of these, and when a customers wondered if I had something to wrap up her Christmas cookies in...OF COURSE I DID!....SO, I covered the canisters with non-SU pp, using red-line tape on the wrapped ends...and grabbed up a spool of FUN GOLD MESH ribbon from Joanns ( approx 3 years ago....yes, I hoard!)...and wrapped that around center...attached a FUN SU LABELICIOUS embossed tag, with corners ticket punched. Top of canister has pp with a flower & leaves punched with the 5-petal punch ....and gold stickles centers for bling.
SO, thats it!....Will definitely KEEP saving them now......great for ANY holiday!!!
REMEMBER MY BLOG CANDY CONTEST!!!!....Please leave a comment......so you can be entered for the RANDOM draw.......CONFESSION: I have JUST about decided WHICH CHALLENGE I will be doing.....watch & see!!!!!
Blessings, Debbie
