Ribbon Resource Halloween Hop!

 The Ribbonistas are hopping at Ribbon Resource to give you some Halloween ideas!
Here's what I've come up with:

A fun way to upcycle those aluminum cans! 
After thoroughly washing I adhered approximately 40" of 1.5" orange grosgrain with scor-tape. I made sure to wrap it over the top and inside to cover any slightly sharp areas that were remaining.
A fun bow around the top with 5/8" cotton ribbon with black stripes only took about 30"
A spooky satin cut-out bat finishes it off!

Wouldn't it be so fun to give some treats like this?

Make sure to comment at all the Ribbonistas on the hop- there are 2 $20 Gift Cards to Ribbon Resource up for grabs!
