DIY DOG TREAT CANISTERS!!

Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

We love our puppies, and they love their treats! We figured we needed a way to easily store a variety of treats in one place to help save space (so we don't have five different bags of treats), so we ran to WalMart and picked up a couple of these clear canisters (one to keep inside, and one to keep outside)....


First, we peeled off the stickers and washed the canisters with soap and water...


Then we gathered the supplies we wanted to use to create a "bone tag"--or, a label that says "TREATS" on it! We picked some paper, ribbon, stamping ink, and stickers, and we printed bones in the size and shape we wanted (using Microsoft clipart for the bones--we printed a few different sizes to use as templates so we could layer the bones on top of each other)....



After gathering our supplies, which were all things we already had on hand (this is a great project for using up paper and ribbon scraps), we cut out the bone shape, inked the edges of the paper with the green stamping ink, mounted it on the green paper and cut that out, and added our stickers and cute doo-dads (the eyelet, paw print, and bone). That landed us with this cute label....


And then of course it was time for the ribbon! We chose one with dog bones on them, and we tied them around each canister....



Then we added the label to one of the canisters with thin jewelry/crafting wire (the indoor one--if we put it on the outdoor one, the weather would just ruin it)...


And that's it! We hope you like this idea! You could do something similar for a non-dog-treat canister. Maybe a Goldfish Cracker canister? Or a cotton ball canister? Or something? Haha, let us know if you come up with any creative ideas for a dolled up canister!
