It’s no secret we love the Target Dollar Spot. When I saw these cute little canisters and saw that they were only $3, I knew I had to grab them and make something super cute with them! I decided to make a Valentine Candy Canister! They are going to be perfect for teacher and neighbor Valentine gifts!
I was able to put this Valentine Candy Canister together in about 10 minutes. And I have to say, I’m a little in love with it. I’ve already got plans to make on for my sweet neighbor and the kids’ teachers. As I said, I got them at Target in the Dollar Spot for only $3! And we all know that the super cute stuff from Target goes really fast, so I’d suggest you high tail it over there and snatch up as many as you can. Ours only had pink canisters, so I’m assuming that is the only color option, but if your store has different ones, let me know! I also checked on their website and unfortunately they aren’t showing there, so you will have to find them in store.
So, I just created the Sweet Treats file on Cricut Design Space, you can find it here. I used glitter vinyl, but I also think the adhesive foil would be adorable too.
After I cut and weeded my vinyl, I put the transfer tape over the top of my lettering, and used my scraper tool (a debit card or library card works too) to get the vinyl to attach to the transfer tape. Pull up at a 45° angle and continue to use your scraper as needed to make sure all your lettering is attached to the transfer tape. I LOVE the lines on the tape because it helps me keep my lettering and images straight on whatever I’m putting them on! You have to be careful with this part, because the tape and the vinyl really stuck well to the ceramic canister. I lined up the top line with the top of the canister and laid it on the canister from the center of the lettering, moving outward on both sides. Make sure your letter lays flat and use your scraper again to go over it to make sure it’s all stuck down on the canister. Pull your tape away at a 45° angle slowly, and there you have it!
You can add a family name, teacher name, or first name to make it as a gift. Fill it up with your choice of Valentine candy, add a little ribbon tied on top and it’s ready to go! Let us know if you make one and share it with us in comments! We hope to see all your cute creations!
