She is awesome! If you haven't checked her out, do, like now. (Well after you read this, of course!)
So to make these, you will need a can with a pop top, such as this for Campbell's soup, in whatever size suits your fancy. You will also need some lovely goodies to fill it with. Mine were for boys, so I filled them with booklets that I made by printing out coloring sheets and jokes from a website for free. I also added flarp (if you have boys I'm sure you know what this is all too well and it's disgusting), Tootsie Rolls, and crayons. I was going to add bouncy balls, but I overestimated the size of my cans.
Open the can and eat or save the soup. Wash it well (be careful of sharp edges).
I bound my coloring books with strips of fleece left over from the taboggans, I think they turned out cute.
Stuff those puppies good and tight so you can squeeze lots of yummy goodness inside! (I actually contained myself and only stole 2 Tootsie Rolls!
Now all you have to do is embellish 'till your heart's content. WARNING: you might get carried away on this part, I did!
Wrap the can with scrapbook paper (or, if you're like me and you don't have a craft store nearby, make your own using paint shop and print it on cardstock: noone will ever know!). Seal edges with craft glue or hot glue. Cut circles for the top and bottom and glue on. For the top, make a notch for the tab. Then add ribbons to the pull tab and a cute tag. I also gave mine some ric rac and button love, see I told you-carried away.
