Mother's Day Altered Paint Cans

I feel like all I've been making lately is paint cans! I love making them though! Tonight I made two simple Mother's Day cans for a silent auction at our church. I'm a big time procrastinator, so I had to rush to get these done tonight to get them in on time. If I had more time, I probably would have got a bit fancier, and maybe put a bunch of ribbon around the handle of each can. I got these clear paint cans from Michael's. I really like the way they look, although I like the traditional metal paint cans as well. I used patterned paper from the DCWV Spring Blossoms pack on each can, and the Cricut cuts were from the Mother's Day cartridge. I filled both cans with products from Bath & Body Works, so I think they will make some nice Mother's Day gifts for whoever wins the bids on the cans. :)

Just For You Paint Can Swap - Butterfly Can

Happy Easter!! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter weekend spent with family and friends!

Here is the paint can I made for my partner, scrappinchic, for the Just For You Paint Can Swap that my partner hosted on the Cricut mb. She had a great idea to host a swap with goodies that your partner would really like so we really got to know each other in this swap so we could find items that our partner would really love! I won't post pictures of the goodies since my partner hasn't received her paint can yet. For now, I'll just post the can itself! I decorated the paint can with a butterfly theme, as my partner is a huge butterfly fan!
