DIY wedding favor No. 3: Wrapped canisters
1. Using craft knife, ruler, and cutting mat, cut 50 3¾- by 12- inch pieces of wrapping paper.
2. Wrap one piece around each can, securing it in place with a 3½-inch piece of double-stick tape.
We used pint-size paint cans, available from Packaging Specialties (206/762-0540 ext. 2) for $30 per 10-pack. Or use quart-size cans, available at Home Depot (about $1).
3. Fill can with candy, spiced or salted nuts, or a drink mix, such as ingredients for making hot chocolate.
4. Place lid on top of can; then, protecting lid with the dish towel, close can by gently tapping around rim with the hammer.
