Organizing the Craft Room - Recycling Cans for Craft Supplies

We enjoy instant chocolate cappucino and have been collecting the empty cans for quite some time. It just seemed a shame to throw them out when they could be useful for other purposes. At the same time, the stash in the craft room was needing some organizing. That is when this idea came up to use the cans for that. With pretty paper the cans got a face lift and labels were then printed to indicate what is inside each can. Now the room looks a lot more tidy in a colorful and harmonious way.



Recycling Cans for Craft Supplies

For this project you will need:

- clean cans with a lid
- paper wide enough to wrap around the can once plus 1 cm extra to overlap
- decoupage glue
- paint brush
- craft knife and cutting mat
- ruler
- printer to print out labels
- cereal box sides


Please follow the tutorial in the link below to make this project.
