Party Favors

I've been working on my Mother in Law's bday party.
I saw these first here and thought that they would serve me well as party favors. You find the pull top cans and open them from the bottom. Wash then fill them with goodies and hot glue the bottom back on. So your guests get to pop the top and find their surprises! Finding the pop top cans without the rounded bottom (they can't be opened with a can opener) was a challenge. These little cans are from little snack-size fruit cups. Here's a better look at the top:

My other new project that I am SO excited about are these checkbook covers! They cost maybe 50 cents to make and take about 30 minutes. That's with the personalization! I saw a girl on Martha Stewart do them. Well, she made wallets. I just kinda winged the checkbook cover. This one is for my sweet friend, Leah's birthday.
