Anyway, here are a few stuff I altered today. I found these two mixed nuts containers that still had the mixed nuts in them. It worked out in the end. I was able to alter something but it would have been nice if I had the empty ones.

Hi Everybody! For several months, I've been collecting empty plastic containers that originally contained mixed nuts and other snacks as well as soup cans. I had set them aside in the kitchen and last week, I noticed they were gone. They were great containers and I was planning to alter them to create decorated snack containers during the holidays.
I asked my husband where he had placed them and he said "oh, the empty containers?". . .I'm like "Yeah! The empty contaners!!!" He's like "well , I thought they were trash and I had thrown them away." WHAT! WHAT! "No way. . .did you just say you threw them away. . .you gotta be kidding me?". . .he's like "yeah, I didn't know that you wanted to keep them". OMG!! I couldn't believe it.. I'm really bummed out that he threw the containers away. I had grand plans for them.
I decorated the containers for the Thanksgiving/Fall Season and the soup cans shown above are for Halloween. Looking at the picture, I don't like how the Raffia looks. It looks messy but in person they actually look really nice because it has the essence of the Fall season. I created them really quickly. . .both within an hour. I'll make better ones next time.
If you want a closer look and details of the altered soup cans with the lollipops, visit my Stampin Inspirations blog site. I posted them on my other blog site because rubber stamping is involved.
If I can find other containers, I'll make more of these and come up with something a little prettier.
Until later, folks?
