My Sheri Crafts #189

September 9th is National Teddy Bear Day and our awesome leader, Sheri, is asking you to make any project that includes... what else... a Teddy Bear.  Come and join us at My Sheri Crafts and show us your Teddy Bear!

My project for this theme is an altered Planter's Peanuts can.  I save these cans because you can reuse them for so many things.  I've made pencil/pen holders and even coin banks from these as you can see from the links below:

The background paper used to cover the can is a thick cardstock from DCWV Pet stack.  I have a stamp I got from Michael's Crafts that says "one of the secrets of a HAPPY LIFE is continuous SMALL TREATS" that was just a little too big for the can so I printed it on the computer instead

I put a bow on the bear and sadly... used hot glue to stick the little critter on to the can

To complete my project... you got it... filled it up with treats!
Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts


  1. What a great project. I'm sure the teddy was fine about it as he'll get a pat on the head everytime a sweet is taken ☺️. I could see this put to great use in a Dr's for children to take one after their appointment. Sugar free ofcourse!!.

  2. Such a creative project! Love it! That is a wonderful sentiment too!

  3. This is just such a cute and fun upcycled little ting. This will also be perfect for one entry as an anything goes creation for our challenge below.
