Step 1: Measuring...

First, get your can out. Take your paper and put it FACE down so that the side you don't want to look at is down. Wrap the paper around your can.

Step 2: Tape

Next, take your handy dandy tape and tape up the part where the two ends meet. You may notice that it can slide right off, so on the top tape some tape connecting the paper to the top of the can. Now for the bottom.

Step 3: Taping the Bottom

Now, it is time to tape the bottom. Wrap up the bottom like you do to the end of wrapping a present. Tape down that to the can. Now, you might have a space where there is can showing on the bottom. No worries, take a sticker or draw and cut out something on a piece of paper and stick it down. I drew a turtle and put it down.

Step 4: The Finishing Touch

Now, you should have a pretty can! Here is the part where you add anything additional like stickers.
Once you are done, add pencils or give as a gift!
