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.
Here are the cans I used.
I made these nail kits for a teenage girl is four easy steps.
STEP 1: Choose your gift.
STEP 2: Make a “pull me” tag.
STEP 3: Tie all your gifts together with ribbon.
STEP 4: Insert them into your decorated Pringles can.

What else can you do with a Pringles Can???
Every year we go to my best friend’s house for the Fourth of July. It’s a casual potluck style get together and I always have a ton of fun. This year I was assigned appetizers. Although I didn’t know this until yesterday I was able to put together some fun festive last minute party appetizers.
Finger foods work best, in my opinion, at casual outdoor parties like this one. You don’t have to worry about supplying/holding/throwing away utensils. My favorite “party utensil” is the toothpick or skewer. It’s so easy to put together and they look great too.
This year, I went with the red, white, and blue theme and made raspberries, star shaped marshmallows, and blackberries on toothpicks.
I also make skewers with cold tortellini with Italian dressing, salami, and cheese. I made little festive flags on my computer and printed them on address labels.
Some other toothpick/skewer last minute party appetizers to consider are:
- Any combination of fruit
- Any combination of veggies
- Cucumber, olives, blue cheese, and tomato
- Mozzarella, basil, and cherry tomato
- Gorgonzola, apple, bacon
- Deli meat, cucumber, tomato
- Any combination of gummy candies
- Any combination of deli meat, cheese, and tomato
- The more colorful the better
- Consider using a small cookie cutter for fruit and such
- Marshmallows are inexpensive and can be dipped in chocolate, sprinkles, or melted candy to fit any party theme.
- Gummy skewers are fun for candy bars. They can also be wrapped in a clear plastic treat bag, tied with ribbon, and given as a party favor.
Memorial Day Craft: Patriotic Votives
Memorial Day is coming up on Monday. Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is when we honor Americans who have died for our country in all wars. Over 100 years ago, it became a widespread practice to decorate the graves of soldiers by friends and family.
With no surprise, Martha Stewart has come up with two ideas that I love; a table top patriotic votive and glowing hanging votives that I thought would be nice to make and to light in honor of our soldiers.
