(Updated) Altered Christmas Mini Paint Can

Yes, I've been MIA.  I'm incapable of handling more than one hobby at a time and have been reading for the last few weeks.  Then I "woke up" and realized it's December already and I need to move my butt!

This was orignally a clear mini paint can type thingy that I got some flowers in at Michaels.  I had already started to cover it to make a gift for my friend when I read that Club Anya would be having a contest soon and some of the categories are for altered items (All Wrapped Up) and best use of Santa or Mrs. Claus (Ho Ho Ho), talk about perfect timing!

Anyways, the top says "Christmas kisses and holiday wishes" and it's filled with Hershey Kisses.  It's for my best "in real life" crafting buddy, she knows who she is and she saw this in the early stages but didn't know it was for her ;0) 

Hope you like!

The set (made the card earlier):

The can:

TGF Stamps - XMas Sweeties
Liquid Applique (THANKS TRACI!) ("puffy" looking parts)
Nestabilities - snowflakes, scalloped circle
EK Success Snowflake mini punch

Wowzers Rachel, this is absolutely drop dead gorgeous, your friend is a very lucky girl. You have certainly set the bar high for the Club Anya competitions, i love it. That liquid applique is so cool (i call it fluffy stuff, tehe)
Amazing work, obviously the rest from crafting did you good, really got your mojo flowing. Can't wait to see what you make next.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
