♥ Happy Mother's Day ♥

I think this is so cute for your flower loving, gardening Mother or Mother-In-Law.

I used a clear pint size paint can (from Joanns) and lined the inside with flower seed packets. A pair of gardening gloves and a gift certificate to the local flower nursery is in the center.

It's off with a ribbon, which has the can 'opener' tied on and one of my Felt Flower Magnets ~ instructions available HERE - that sticks to the metal lid.

I glued green rickrack around the bottom of the can.

The pretty flower magnet can be used on the fridge later.

This would also be cute made using one of the larger clear paint cans.
You could fit more inside & make a 'bouquet' of flower magnets for the top.


  1. So cute, would like to make this, what is the "can opener" mentioned in the instructions?

  2. The container comes with a small round 'opener'. You can barely see it in the photo. It's just above the work Happy. It's basically a small round washer used to open the can (container).
