I'm melting...

This is not the gift for the Wicked Witch of the West (melting and all that mess)... But if you need a little more "adult" looking treat holder for someone next week (Yes! Halloween is next week!!) this might work for you.  The tutorial and template for this darling watering can can be found here on Splitcoast.

So easy and quick - just print the template on the back of your paper, cut, score, adhere and embellish as desired.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Night and Day Specialty paper from the mini catalog.  The tag sentiment is from Grateful Greetings (also in the mini).  The spider is from the set From the Crypt and is stamped in Versamark Ink for a subtle spooky feel.  Black Hemp is retired but you could easily substitute black grosgrain ribbon.  Mine is filled with candy corn in a small cello bag from SU - just the perfect size for this container.

Here is the first watering can I made - the day I saw the tutorial.

Tip - you can see the print on the inside of the handle if you use the template as is.  So instead of using the handle from the template - I suggest you just cut a strip of paper the same size.

Gorgeous! I really like this watering can, it really is a cute way to serve a nice little treat, or maybe a small gift. The Night and Day paper is perfect for this one. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. It´s also a great summer-gift for "gardeners".
My favorite is the first one. The paper is soooo gorgeous.
