Disney Paint Can Swap

I joined a Disney Paint Can Swap on the cricut message board. We had to take an empty paint can (bought at Home Depo) and decorate it with a Disney theme. Since Disney items are expensive, we had a $20-$30 price range to fill the can. My partner is going to be a grandma for the first time this summer. She wanted items that could be used in a baby book. I hope she likes everything.

Here is the can that I made:
