Step 1: Gathering Materials:
Fairly heavy-weight material scraps that can be pieced together to produce a 52 inch by 3 inch rectangle
Colored plastic decorating tape to match the container's coloring (available at craft stores) I paid $1.39 for a 3/4 inch by 125 inch roll.
Decorative children's stickers (available at craft stores) I paid $1.00 for these.
Thread for sewing the straps. The sewing can be done partly by machine and the rest manually, or you can hand-sew the entire project if you prefer.
