Super Simple Food Container

It's getting close to Christmas and I've been making some food gifts and need containers.  This is a gallon sized can that I opened using one of the safe can openers that open the cans from the side.  I just measured it and covered it with some holiday paper.   DH put the hole in the lid for the ribbon. 

It's a great way to recycle any size can and save some money on containers.  My next project is to decorate about 24 lunch bags to hold some pint jars of goodies.  I'm hoping after the Christmas party this Saturday that I can convince Shirley, aka Okieladybug, to give me some inspiration on those!

Brenda, I'll probably put Chex party mix in it. I'm doing a lot of food gifts this year for neighbors and friends.
