Watering Can

I made this cute watering can using the Wonderful Watering Can template from My Time Made Easy. It was actually easier to make than I expected.  I did have to re-make the spout but the 2nd try came together like I wanted. I also tied some May Arts Ivory silk ribbon around the spout to hide where it attached to the base.   I had to cut this template out by hand since my Cricut died and the replacement wasn't here yet--poor me. LOL  Luckily, my new Cricut showed up just in time for me to make the flower.

I used the metal sheets from Quickutz and embossed them with some cuttlebug folders.  I put 12 mini chocolate chip cookies inside and donated this for the school's annual baked goods auction.  They were low on baked goods, so I ran out and bought some cookie dough.   I also thought they might get more $$ if I packaged the cookies in a really nice container.  This watering can had room for the cookies, I just had to split them up into 2 - 6 cookie pkgs in order to slide them inside without damaging the top.  I also put a dozen mini cookies in this container and donated it too.  This is one time I was grateful to have a bunch of decorated templates sitting around just waiting for a use!


Thanks for stopping by!
