Candy in a Can

I've got an idea that's fun, thoughtful and promotes recycling.

Our blah -- an empty and clean sardine can. 

Make a lid for the can using paper and paint. 

With scissors, shape the lid to fit the top of the can.
Add a ribbon loop that mimics a tab to open the lid. 

Tuck in a small bag of candy inside the can. 

I chose the gummy candy, Swedish Fish. I know these guys will be right at home in a sardine can! Another option is "Crackers in a Can" using Goldfish crackers.

Cover the surprise with the handmade lid. 
Glue in place. 

Now we've got a cute gift or party favor.
