Holiday Traditions Candy Canister with Eileen Hull/Sizzix

 Have you seen Eileen Hull new Vintage Kitchen Dies...they are amazing. I am sharing with you the Canister Die and how easy it is to make into a gift giving project. I love to give candy, cookies and other treats to friends that pop in...so sometimes I fill container with homemade or store bought items.
I began by first cutting on the Canister Die, remember to cut two of the sides out and then stained it with some Brushed Corduroy Distress Stain.
 Any one that knows me knows I love Graphic 45 and thought the 12 Days of Christmas Collection would be perfect to use on my canister. I fussy cut the pear image out twice and layered them together, twisted the ribbon to make it look like it was in flight using a small dowel rod and added a few flowers...some I fussy cut out and others I punched out and layered together.
 For the top of the canister I added a Doily Die cut, metal frame and a large bead I found in the jewelry section of our local craft store. I then added a fussy cut bird from the Christmas paper along with another flower I made.
I hope you enjoyed another of our Holiday Traditions on having small gifts ready for our friends. I sure makes life less stressful during this time of year. I hope you check out Eileen Hull's other Vintage Collection Dies and try making yourself, family and friends some fabulous gifts this Christmas Season. I am off to make a few more and thank you as always for stopping by. Hugs Pammejo
