Sugar Shaker

I love turning trash into treasure.  About a year ago, I made a Cinnamon Sugar Shaker out of an old Parmesan cheese container. It's held up really well. I love how you can either sprinkle it on or spoon it on depending on how you open the top. I use it for all sorts of things like cinnamon toast, or sprinkle it on crepes. I also use it to make my dried apples.

I decided that I needed one for plain sugar, since the kids are always getting out the big jar of sugar to sprinkle some on their rice krispies.  Here's how to make one.

First wash thoroughly and dry complete. Also take off the label.

Next I cut a piece of thick scrapbook paper and attached it with glue dots. 

Wrap the paper around and affix it at the other end.

Next make a label. I used a template I've had forever.  Write on the label before attaching it.

Affix the label using glue dots.

For a more washable surface, apply two coats of mod podge. ( I would still only use a damp cloth to wipe it off. NEVER immerse in water or you'll probably ruin it.)
