Pringles Cans Wrapped As Presents Make Excellent Christmas Cookie Exchange Containers

Photo Credit To Unknown

This is simple and makes giving cookies so much easier. (no need to stop at cookies – because Pringles cans could be used for a variety of Christmas presents.) Why spend money on buying a container to give cookies that most likely would be thrown away or just donated. These are easy to make and they are upcycled so it gives them additional uses.

Wash the inside of the can with a clean sponge or I used a wipe that was food safe that had bleach. This kept it clean so no bacteria grows.

Cut a piece of wrapping paper the height of the Pringles can. You will want to cover all of the design and advertising but no need to cover the silver rim or the bottom. When you have it cut you can use spray adhesive to cover surface or use a disposable paint brush and Mod Podge/white school glue. If using school glue mix in a bowl with a bit of water. Do not use excess because the wrapping paper will bubble, warp and then it wont meet the edges of the can.

The cookies I individually wrapped with cling wrap and placed them one on top of the other. I closed the lid and wrapped them with a coordinating ribbon.

These looked nice and I think made really nice presents.
