Good evening all!!

Deb, I just copied the link to send to myself and my sister. She is pretty much disabled at this point, but does like to do crafts, and can certainly do some of these for Christmas gifts, and/or to be entered into a craft fair.

Thank you so much for sharing. Norma

Those are really cute "can" ideas. I remember in elementary school taking cleaned soup & veggie cans in to school to decorate for gifts for the parents or starting seedlings in.
