This next month, my daughter will be turning 3-years-old. Where did time go? It seems like I should still be changing diapers, fixing bottles, and rocking her to sleep. I guess that is why we should cherish every single moment we have because it goes by WAY too fast.
My daughter will be having a princess party for her birthday and mommy has already started looking for cute, reasonably priced plates, napkins, and accessories. When I was opening a can of pineapples last week, I had an idea. I could turn this pineapple can into a cute utensil holder for her birthday! And, that is exactly what I did. For my first can-to-creation project, I did a pretty good job. There were a few things that I didn’t think about until after I had started (like making sure the scrapbook paper seams were in the back), but overall I was satisfied. And, now, we will have a cute cupcake utensil holder for Miss. Kate’s birthday.

paper to the can.
