Danger! Contents Highly Addictive

Good Morning, My Crafty Friends!

Welcome to another Flaunt It Fridays Challenge! Today's challenge is to Flaunt the skull and crossbones from Mini Monsters. The only requirement is that it not be used for a Halloween project. Here is what I cam up with:
This is a pop-top can filled with chocolates. It is a fun way to give a gift.

Here are the steps in making this fun gift.

You will need and can with a pop-top lid, safety can opener, super glue, and something in which to fill the can.
You are going to turn the can over and open it from the bottom with your safety can opening. Empty the contents from the can and clean it thoroughly.
Now fill your can with whatever surprise you would like to hide inside.
Using super glue reattach the bottom of the can. It is probably a good idea to put the contents in a sandiwhic bag or baggie with a twist time. This will help protect the contents from the glue.
Now the fun part, Decorating!
Here is what I used to decorate this can:
Cricut Cartridges ~ Mini Monsters - skull and crossbones, Gypsy Wanderings - Danger
Fiscars Punch
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders ~ Seeing Spots, Swiss Dots
Computer generated sentiment
Atg or if you really want it to stick, Mod Podge

I hope you join us this week in Flaunting your stuff at Flaunt It Fridays!

Happy Crafting!
