Nuts About You Gifts


This year I decided to do 12 days of Christmas for my husband.  I've never done that before and thought it would be fun to let him know how special he is to me.  After 20+ years, I think it's a nice way to do something special just for him.  As part of my 12 days of Christmas, I have a can of cashews for him.  So I decided to make these little squirrels and put them on the can.  I liked it so much, I did a second can that I'm giving away as a gift.  Isn't this a fun way to "wrap" a round gift!   On the can it also says, "Nuts About You!"  What a perfect sentiment on them!  Anyway, just a fun idea.   I think I like how the top one turned out better than at the bottom one but..... think they are both fun gifts and a cute way to wrap the can.  I used some 2 or 3 year old paper and a pattern set that I've never used before  Christmas Inspired Wrap it up photo challenge (I used the colors on the top can for this challenge - not the bottom can.) Traditional colors - the top can is red and green - traditional colours  Christmas
