It’s that time of year again. Are you hosting or are you invited to a cookie party? Here’s a fun twist to taking home a paper plate full of delicious cookies: create a holiday-themed recycled potato chip tin.
First, eat the chips and then clean the container. Using your favorite holiday colors, paint the potato chip can. I used Americana Multi Surface Satin acrylic paint by DecoArt in Soft Jade. Then stamp a flourish design onto cardstock by lightly dabbing the rubber stamp with the paint. I used the color Red Barn.
Once the paint is competely dry, decoupage the cardstock strips onto the can. Seal it with another coat of decoupage.
Using an ink jet printer, print out “Wishing you a sweet holiday season!” onto a transparency sheet.
Adhere over the middle of the can. Glue raffia on both edges of the middle section.
Create a fun gift tag.
Embellish the top of the can with holiday decorations. Tie the tag around the decor. Fill with an assortment of cookies at the party. This would also make a great table centerpiece—just use a larger container.
