Here we are in the last week of July. Have you made any progress on your Christmas projects and gifts?
This week I'm working on my gift list. I am not a huge fan of gift cards. They seem impersonal to me. I will admit to giving them as gifts, though. Sometimes, I just have no other ideas in mind.
I thought a gift card might be more fun for me to give if my giftee had to work a little to get it. Plus, there is no guessing what is in a sealed can until you open it. Muwhahaha. Gift peekers foiled!
The last time I opened a can, I used an under–the–rim can opener to preserve the lip of the can lid. I measured the width of the original label and then washed out the can.
Since gift cards are rather generic, I thought a generic can label might be funny. I actually weighed a gift card (½ oz, 0.03125 lb, and 14.175 g in case you were wondering). I printed out a simple label and sprayed it with Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel to give the label a bit of gloss and water protection.
