ClearSnap: Christmas Cookie Canister

Hi everyone! How can it be December already!?!?! And the 4th?!?! I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that fact that it’s almost the end of the year but I want to share a quick DIY canister project I created for ClearSnap that might inspire you to create a thoughtful gift to give to a family member or special friend.

I started with an empty hot cocoa tin that my sister had given me…nothing like up-cycling something that you would toss in the garbage can. 😀

I cut a piece of Red and Ivory Ticking Cardstock to fit around the lid and container and adhered.

I placed a scallop circle rubber stamp, from the Cookies Clear Stamp Set, onto an Acrylic Block and ink with Wicked Black Ink which I stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock.


I fussy cut the stamped image out and adhered on top of container lid. I glued the chipboard button to the center of the lid an on top of the button I glued the felt ball. I added mini pom pom trim underneath the “lip” of the container. I cut one recipe card from the Black and White Recipe Cards Cardstock and stamped the mixing bowl and wooden spoon onto patterned cardstock. I fussy cut both images out and adhere to the bottom corner of the recipe card.

I also added the “To” and “From” to the tag stamp before inking with Wicked Black ink and stamp onto a white piece of cardstock. I fussy cut the tag out and punch a hole in the top of the tag. Next I inked the holly stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of green cardstock. I fussy cut, shape and add mini red gems to the berries and adhered the holly to the top of the tag. I finished off by tying the tag with baker’s twine to the top of the container. Now all I need is either candy or some sweet treat to add to the inside  before giving as a gift. If you have any question about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
