What do I do with these paint cans?

I was given a case of clean, new paint can type containers that look like they are about quart size maybe a bit smaller. I'm thinking I could do something as favors in them but am at a loss for what. I'm crafty but not artistically gifted and FI isn't much of a painter/artist - so I'm not sure how to tie the paint can into something neat.

I thought about putting s'more type ingredients in bags then into the cans but we aren't the camping outdoor type. I also thought about putting together a dry mix for cookies or even candy in them (in food safe bags first). Any ideas on what to do with them or how to word the label if we do use them?

Do you have a picture of them so I can come up with something? I am pretty crafty so I may be able to aid you! I just need a visual!

I don't have a picture of the cans yet. They are still in the case but here is a pic of what they look like. I even think this is the brand.

you can paint/write something like both of your name and the date on the front, and then put some candy/biscuit in them as wedding favors
