Peacock Gift Tower
Metal cans are inexpensive and with the right graphics/label, they have the look of specialty items.
For this package I used a wide ribbon to tie the cans together .
I enjoyed not having to use cellophane, for a change.The top box is topped off with a peacock feather for a little extra pizzazz.
You will need:
- 3 metal cans
- Chocolate covered pretzels
- Dried Kiwi
- Marbleized Cookies
- Peacock feather (inexpensive on amazon)
- Wide ribbon
- Colored string
- Graphics (OMG Designfirstname.lastname@example.org)
- Blue or green shred, optional
Place some shred in each can.
Fill the cans with food (I used a small cellephane bag to put the food in before putting it in the can).
Place stickers on the cans.
If you are using the feather, use a drill to make a small hole on the cover of the top can or simply tape it to the back of the can.
Stack up the cans and bring the ribbon around the cans to tie a tight knot. It is a good idea to run a piece of packaging tape on the back of the can to reinforce the stack.
Attach tag to your ribbon.
- Your favorite sugar cookies
- Baking chocolate, melted
- Blue and green candy melts, melted
Place a small puddle of chocolate in the center of each cookie.
Drop ¼- ½ tsp of each color candy melts into the chocolate and swirl around with a toothpick.
