Wonderful Things Tin
1 Washed Out Tin Can-- Last night's green beans!
Card stock Paper - Your choice in color or design
1 4x4 of fabric - Your choice in color or design
1 Rubber band
Cut strips of paper (these are for your sweet little notes)
Extra sticky glue

1. Cut a piece of the card stock you have chosen to wrap around your tin. These may very in size so measure before you cut.
2. Glue the cut cardstock around the entire can. Let dry before moving on...
3. Create a one of-a-kind note on another piece of cardstock for the front message: 25 best moments with you. This can be anything you want!
4. Glue this message you can created on the front on the tin can
(Now take the time to write special, sweet notes....)
5. Place all of your notes inside the tin
5. Place the fabric over the top of the tin
5. Secure with the rubber band, wrap some ribbon around...and whola! You have created a "Wonderful Things" Tin Can.

Cheap, Heartfelt and the way to show anyone how you feel!

All the best,
