My husband bought one that opens the can with "no sharp metal edges"! Thought came to mind (but not expressed) "Why didn't you get me another Kitchen Aid opener??" But then I had a light bulb moment... I can now make pop top can gifts!!
I made them for my kids for Valentine's Day today! :) Here they are... (scroll down for pics and instructions) I'm entering this is the Cuttlebug Spot Sweetheart Challenge -hearts (mine are embossed) and a stamp.

|can't remember where I got this stamp|

Here's how to make one...
1. Open your pop top can on the bottom. These soup cans are kind of big... the mandarin orange cans are a great size, but I didn't have enough of them. If your family is helping you get your stash of cans, make sure everyone knows to save the bottom they cut off!!! :)
2. Have lunch :)
3. Remove label and clean out well
8. Put a bead of hot glue around the rim of the bottom. **Lesson learned... DO NOT use low temp glue! It will harden before you can get the lid on!
10. Embellish sides and top as desired. It is such a fun gift! Most people will wonder where you bought a can of their favorite candy! Crafty people will wonder "How did you do that??" Just smile!!
Thanks for dropping by!!!
