Okay ladies as I promised, the recipe is here. But now that I am finally posting it I'm remembering back to when I wasn't even willing to make one of these suckers, it took me forever just mulling over the idea before I made one. I didn't see the point, what would it be used for?
Well, let me tell you just in case you are as bad as I was... they can pretty much be used in the place of any gift bag, but even more cute and specific, like with themes of a spa retreat, a date/movie night, a wedding engagement, a baby shower and so on. They also make good raffle, card, donation, suggestion, or even supply buckets.
My first paint can was for a client's husband's retirement party about a year ago. The party was Mardi Gras themed, so I made her a themed can and some tags to match, she put it all on a table where people wrote their best wishes for her husband on the tags and put them in the can. I ended up making a custom album for her as well with the party pictures where I used the tags, it was wonderful... and I was sold!!! I have made about 40 cans since. Including the 16 I made recently for my dear friend's wedding reception centerpieces (pictured above). The possibilities are endless.
