  1. I removed the labels and washed out a tin can and covered it with scrapbooking paper. I used silver metal from Walnut Hollow's Creative Metal Line. I cut it into 1" strips and folded it accordion style. I placed decorative scrapbooking tape over the metal before adhering it to the center of the can with strong adhesive.

  2. The angel placed on the front of the can was created with wood wings, a stamped circle and chipboard shapes. I used a photo-realistic stamp and Staz On ink in black to stamp a piece of smooth cardstock. I cut the face out and used Collage Pauge to adhere it to the painted circle. Rub ons provided the holiday sentiment in the center of the angel.

  3. I added a jeweled brad and glittered ribbon to the bottom of the front for extra sparkle.

  4. As an extra fun detail, I punched small holes with a heavy hole punch and placed brads at the back of the can on the seams. I added a sparkly beaded handle and glued the angel to the can with Aleene's Original Tacky Glue.
