" Trick or Treat" - Anything BUT a Card

I do my fair share of recycling! I take a load of recyclable items every Tuesday.  In this particular case, I sometimes recycle tin cans that have a "pop top". I think it is a fun way to use as a gift holder.  For today's tutorial, I used Fancy Sunbonnet Witch from Bugaboo Stamps as my focal point.  I've taken pictures at various angles, but still felt it would help to do a little tutorial video.  I do my very best not to go over 3 minutes.  I was a stuttering girl with a southern accent, and a mess in this particular video, but  I  hope you get the jest of "how-to's" for this fun gift holder.
