Have you ever needed a little gift for someone that was quick and easy to put together and just plain cute? I thought this would make a cute little birthday gift. . .especially for someone who likes to bake. It's a little acrylic paint can filled with the dry ingredients and recipe to make mini cupcakes!
I filled the can with a Jiffy muffin mix because they're small enough to fit in the paint can. I added some powdered sugar (for the icing), mini baking cups, pink sugar sprinkles and a recipe card. All the recipient would need is a mini cupcake pan and the "wet" ingredients!
The paint can was quick and easy to decorate. I cut a 2.5"x12" piece of patterned paper to wrap around the can. I used my Coluzzle to cut a circle for the top of the can. Then I stamped and colored my focal piece, cut it out with oval Nestabilities and attached it to the can with ribbon and adhesive. Everything about this gift is little and cute. . .perfect for the sentiment "It's your birthday. . .eat something cute!"
