Step 1: Materials

1. Some type of paper that's reasonably thick. (I used poster paper)
2. A marker or pen or something to write with.
3. A trash basket.
4. Adhesive or rubber band.
5. Scissors

Something to decorate it with
A ruler (helps if you're not good at drawing straight lines.)

Step 2: The Base

You'll need to draw the main outline, which looks like the picture. You should use measurements according to preference and/or trash bin/can/whatever.

Step 3: Cut It Out

Pretty simple

Step 4: Draw the Box to Help Aim

May want to use ruler. Doesn't have to look like mine.

Step 5: Add Another Piece of Paper

Look at picture

Step 6: Attach to Waste Basket

With adhesive or rubber band :)

Step 7: Enjoy

If you don't, just tell me what you'd like me to improve, and I won't care at all.
