Gift Wrapping Peppermint Icicles

Label this tin irresistible. All you need is miniature paint cans, available at container-supply stores, and our clip art. One batch of icicles will fill two cans.


Resources: 32-ounce paint can with lid (No. 449330), from the Container Store. Paper: presentation matte in 8 1/2 by 11 inch (No. S041062), and 11 by 17 inch (S041070), from Epson.



  1. Step 1

    Wash 32-ounce unused miniature paint cans with soap and hot water. Dry thoroughly.

  2. Step 2

    Using an ink-jet printer, print clip-art lid labels onto 8 1/2-by-11 paper and clip-art container labels onto 11-by-17-inch paper.

  3. Step 3


    Cut out labels, and affix to tops and sides of cans with double-sided tape. Fill cans with icicles (placing in cellophane bags if desired), and top with lids.
