Going green with my Pazzles

Today I took a much needed rest from the bedroom (remodeling, that is) and spent half the designing and creating these little boxes out of recycled cans and jar lids. The Pazzles made the cutting a breeze because all I had to do was input the diameter of the circles to size them perfectly.
Of course you can do it the old fashioned way with scissors too...

Just make sure the lids and cans are the same can mix and match. The card stock insert holds the two together.

2 lids or cans of the same diameter
2 inside circles of card stock glue inside after installing insert
2 outside circles any paper or material for top and bottom
for the card stock insert (I lined mine with matching paper)...Measure the circumference and add 1/2 inch overlap.. and height of the 2 cans together.glue to bottom can inside.
Embellish the top with whatever and hide a gift inside!
