We did that this year, too! Glad to see that you and Belladune are getting good use out of your cans, too! I ended up having to spray paint the lids to my cans, though, because none of them matched my wrapping paper. (I used paper that I received on last year's gifts)

Ha!  That's awesome!  I am actually using mod podge on empty baby formula containers and using them as storage in my craft room.  Awesome idea, though.  I use Nestle Goodstart and unfortunately the lids are REALLY ugly.  I was thinking of spray painting them or something.

I remember using these when I had my first baby and we covered them with paper to match the kitchen and used as plant pot holders!
I breastfed all the others so no tins LOL!! but Hot chocolate ones work well too (and Pringles crisps ones are also good)

This is a great idea and it looks great too! Nice work!

I started doing this a couple years ago with all my baby formula cans too...I save every can/container I get my hands on.  Now I cut brown paper bags or random leftover paper in the size to wrap the can and have my kids paint, color, and stamp stuff all over it.  Then we wrap the can and send.  Last year we did all of our holiday cookies in 'one of a kind' snowflake stamped paper with a few 2 year old handprints....everyone loved them.

I was saving mine to do the same thing!! but funny how I ran out of time to do it Smiley

Yours look awesome, I love the red color of the lid. Mine are gold and have writing on them.  You know one thing you can do is modpodge some coordinating wrapping paper over the lid, just leaving the rim exposed.
