I wrapped the tape around the edges for a finished look. I adhered it to the can with strong red scrapbook tape. I trimmed the edges of the tag with tape and tied it with cheerful yellow and white twine.
I sorted my M&M's into different colors, so each colored layer showed separately in the clear pail. For the lid, I cut a circle out of yellow patterned paper and adhered the brad and diecut paper with pop dots. I sewed around the edges of the poem and used MME chipboard letters for the "M&M".
