Black bird, black bird

Have you ever ventured so far from your "safe zone" that it made you squirm a little?
This color trio of always artichoke, rose red, and black for the SCS CC209 turned me into squirmin' Herman! I decided to try it anyways...and found a new color combo that I like.. a lot as a matter of fact.
I recycled a cleaned veggie can for this treat container, its the type with the white lining. You can use any type of can just make sure its super clean and dry before you put treaties in it...safety first! wrap the can with patterned paper, add strips of coordinating card stock smaller strips tend to work best due to the heaviness of card stock. Embellish with any number of accessories.
I chose punched flowers topped with black buttons & rhinestones attached with glue dots { those little suckers are time savers} The glitter strip, is sticky strip with Martha Stewart tourmaline glitter..it looks just like rose red.I can't wait to ship this off in my mom and dads Easter care package they will be thrilled to get a can of black beans...that is if I can stay out of them Yummy!
