Yesterday I shared my Grad card (scroll down for that post)
These are the small paint cans available at your local craft store.
I loved this paper I found at Archiver's. It was double sided so one side is the argyle and the other was different vintage looking squares with horses, golf or other "guy" things.
We filled the tins with our dad's favorite candy or snack. His dad: Andy's Mints. My dad: pretzles.
Hope this inspires you to make something great for the guy in your life.
