pretzel-containerHere is another re-purposing idea.  I like to make chocolate dipped pretzels as gifts.  They are fun and easy to make.  My son loves to help and this is one that he can do with ease and little mess.   Not sure where the idea came from to give them in the Pringles can came from.  But here is one that I made as a thank you to his bus driver.    This has been a very busy season for me an I only expect things to pick up as we near the CHA Summer show.  For many of you who are not attendees they are having something different this year.  After the traditional wholesale show they are going to open the event to the consumers.  SO, if you live near Orlando or feel like taking a trip to Orlando the consumer portion will be the first weekend in August.

    Hi Niki,
    Just popped by to see what awesome creations you’ve been making! I love this can idea and am going to get busy decorating some formula cans I’ve been saving to use for a variety of presents for grandmas and aunts from the kids. (flavored roasted nuts, cookies, maybe even a planted flower if I can waterproof the paper from watering overflows)
    Thanks for the inspiration and congrats on all of the recent publication success!

    I love this idea! The pringles can is perfect. The ribbon of red buttons really gives it a fun look.
