Butterfly Kisses - Repurposed Soup Can

This week our Peachy Keen Challenge is to repurpose a Soup can.
I knew right away what I wanted to make.

I cleaned out can and let it dry over night. I covered the can with bright butterfly paper Dotty for You from Close to My Heart. I tied a fluffy bow using wired rainbow colored sheer ribbon.

Now I knew that this would be top heavy as the candies were removed and I did not want it to tip over so I made a Rosette in a coordinating chevron stripe and adhered the can to the Rosette. It made a sturdy base and won't tip.

Now it is time to start assembling the butterflies. I wanted them to look like stained glass windows. Using Wall Decor and More I cut 4 inch butterflies . You have to peachify the adorable butterflies, so I cut 3/4" circles to add heads to the butterflies and stamped them with PK-650 Just Baby Faces Assortment. I accented them with black and white gel pens and pink chalk. I also mixed turquoise and purple glitter for the butterfly bodies. 


Ok...are you ready. Filled with Hershey Kisses and ready to give to my mom next week. Here is my entry. It is gonna be hard to part with. I may have to make another one!
