I love fun, thoughtful gifts, and who wouldn’t love to receive a 6 pack of treats. I know I would! *hint*hint* (:
I got the idea from Catherine at Cat on a Limb. She recovered her 6 pack box and used it as a tool caddy which is very smart. But who wants to paint when you can grab your 6 pack and sit in front of the TV (or Pinterest) and DO NOTHING!!!
Catherine gives a great step by step tutorial with pictures so I didn’t bothering catching every step. I just did exactly what she did.
The person I was making it for really likes the color purple so I tried to pick colors that I knew she would like.
I must admit that my favorite part was drinking the Cream Soda. Oh, how I love IBC Cream Soda. I wanted to leave my friend a couple of bottles so I drank 4 and left 2 for her. But I didn’t throw the bottles or the caps away. I washed them out really good and then let them sit for a couple of days to make sure the inside was good and dry. Then I filled them with small candies: Smarties, Skittles, M&M’s and Candy Corn. But really any small candy would work.
Then, my favorite part, I left it on her desk at work. It was a fun gift to make but I think it was a great gift to receive as well.
