This is a practice that I have used for many years now. I collect tin cans, decorate them with some pretty paper and store my pencils, paint brushes, odds and ends, and scissors in them.
First, I picked out a pretty paper. Next, I cut them into strips of 41/4 inches wide. Then, I used my super power double sided tape on the perimeter backside. Lastly, I simply adhered it to the can, running it just under the top lip so it fit snug and tight.
Have you ever tried this project? Let me know down in the comment section.
