Party Prize Idea

A couple of weeks ago I did a post on my other blog about repurposing all those empty cans.  You can read it here.

Well I found a new one that is just for you consultants.

I am working on some new games for my show tonight and had bought some little prizes from the Dollar Tree.  Spoons, brushes, and strainers.  I tied ribbons on them and was going to place them in a basket.  I then started thinking that since they were cooking utensils I should put them in a utensil holder.  I didn't have one that I wanted to risk breaking, so I came up with this.

What do ya think?  I have some other ideas also.  Decorating it for dog or cat treats and even using it as a hostess packet.  When we put our hostess items in a folder or envelope often times it gets lost in piles of mail, etc.  If we used a can, it is big, will sit on the cabinet and will not fall victim to the out of sight, out of mind problem.  I'll post pics when I get these done.  If you make one or have another idea, leave a comment and tell us about it.
