Paint Can and Candy Bar Sliders

This paint can is one I worked on over the weekend when I went to my friend's house. There has GOT to be an easier way to deal with the handles. My friend sure enjoyed laughing at me while I tried to accomplish getting the paper around the handles. I think she may have even learned a few cuss words! LOL.

It was equally as hard to get a decent picture of. This is the best picture of the can (even though it included the tag and the candy bar cover as well).



I love how the little tag turned out (I tried to match the colors to the papers on the can)



Next I made the candy bar covers. I got the instructions for these off the Splitcoaststampers site under the Resources page.



It's a "slider" - so as you pull up on the ribbon the candy bar "slides" out.

I wish the pictures really did these guys justice. They are so DANG CUTE! Thanks to my friend Concetta for letting me play with her new Changitos!

Well done Jane on the tin. I'm with you about the handles, they are a pain. I have found it easy to make two same sized panels, that meet at the handles, and use my circle punch to punch out a hole to go around the handle.
