My friends Dad passed away suddenly a year ago today. I can’t even begin to imagine how hard it has got to be to lose a parent. My heart aches for her and her family. I wanted to find a way to let her know just how much I care and that I am thinking about her, on this one year Anniversary of his passing. This is what I came up with.
I remember her dad LOVED Reece’s peanut butter cups, so I wanted to use them somehow. I
I went to Hobby Lobby to find a cute container, then Walmart for the candy. (funny side note…as I was buying the candy, I ran into her. There it was, a bag of candy just sitting in my shopping cart. I panicked for a second. I felt like she had totally just busted me, and knew what I was up too) haha 🙂
We had a fun little chat and off I went, home to embellish it up.
I decided to hang a little banner from the handle
here is the other side
The lid of the can dips down. I was originally just going to cut a paper circle to cover it. Then I thought it would be cute to use Amy’s acordian flower technique to go on the top of the lid.
after that was done I filled it up with crinkley paper and candy.
I made a matching card to go along with the gift.
I love making fun little meaningful gifts. I hope she was able to find a little comfort knowing that I am thinking of her and here if she needs me.
