Got treats?

For my project this month, I altered a Folger’s coffee container and turned it into a doggie treat jar.

I used MTC to design the panels (3.5″ x 4.25″) and top (5.25″ circle) and then imported clip art that I found using Google to create the dog and fire hydrant cuts. I used the pixel trace function to do this. For the dog, I copied the resulting cut file, pasted in place to get the same size copy, used Shape Magic to break apart the sections and then removed everything except the outline so I could cut the brown and black portions separately. I cut a small heart with a punch for the tongue and just trimmed to fit. I glued the black part onto the brown using spray adhesive.

The letter was also done in MTC, but that is child’s play. All you need to do is select a font on your computer to make titles.

Thanks for visiting the blog. See you again soon!!

  1. cute cute, I was just looking for something to put treats and rawhide bones in and u just my question as to what to use. Thank you for sharing, I love the way yours turned out.

  2. Oh, I need to do this for my mom! She’ll probably need a couple of them; one for rawhides and one for treats- her spoiled little Abbie even has her own Facebook page. LOL!

  3. I love this idea. Heaven knows I have the cans. 🙂 It is time to make them adorable and useful like this.

  4. I think I would like to make something like this to store labels in my garden room. I could make a set. Actually it would be kind of fun to decorate the coffee can I am using for coffee in the kitchen since it is always sitting on the counter anyway.

  5. Ahhh, been using coffee cans for years for storage, but, never decorated one. Now I just might try that. Thanks for the idea.

  6. I don’t have a fur baby but I may need to make something similar for my grandchildren’s treats. It’s adorable!

  7. What a great idea! We have coffee cans floating around and I think I will do something with them, but don’t seem to get around to it. We have plenty of dog treats too, so this is great inspiration! Thanks!

  8. I love that the can is recycled and made good use of for the dog treats.
    Loved the project. Thanks for sharing.
