Recycled Pringles Can Gift Kits

by Dinah Wulf

I have seen a few Pringles can cookie tins on Pinterest.  They are cleverly wrapped and hold the perfect sized cookie.  I’ve seen them wrapped with Christmas paper complete with a bow and I’ve seen them wrapped like a Mummy for Halloween.   These lovely ideas inspired me to create these Recycled Pringles Can Gift Kits with a “pull me” tag and ribbon.  The long vertical shape is perfect for this.

    Wow! What a cute idea! I just had to click and check this out, as it happens, I bought a can of Pringles for my daughter for the first time yesterday! Now the “junk food guilt” can subside, as I have something awesome to make from the soon to be empty can! I love the “pull me” tag!

    • Thank you, Debbye! I’m almost at “hoarder status” with my empty food container addiction! 😉

      • Yes, me too! If only I had the room to store them all in my tiny kitchen or overflowing laundry room! I love what you did with the recycled food storage gift boxes too! Lovely!

  • This is such a fantastic idea. I think I will be using this idea for giving a stack of cookies for Christmas. Great post!
