Step 1: Gather Supplies
You will need:
Step 2: Take Off the Paper
Remove the paper from your selected cans.
Step 3: Wash Your Cans
Wash and dry your cans out thoroughly.
Step 4: Remove the Glue
The paper on cans is held on by glue. I find it to look messy with the glue so I used a knife to carefully scrape it off.
Step 5: Select Your Paper Measure and Cut
Select a piece of decorative scrapbook paper. Measure the width by holding it up to the can. Draw a straight evenly spaced line using a ruler and cut.
Step 6: Tape Paper Strip
Tape the paper strip to secure it to the can and wrap the paper tightly around the can.
Step 7: Hot Glue the End
Place a line of hot glue to the area where the paper ends. Be sure to wrap it tightly. Let it dry and you are done.
Step 8: Get Organizing
These cans can be used for pencils, pens, scissors, paint brushes, Popsicle sticks and the list goes on.
