Paper, no paint!

A friend, who is a teacher asked me to make a few of these paper covered paint cans for her classroom. They are really easy to do. You can buy empty clean paint cans at Lowes. I have a few more to make, they will be done tomorrow. Another finished project!!!



This little birdie is going somewhere!


My favorite part of this can is the little pieces of fabric on the handle.

That is tooo cute! What do you glue the paper on with?

Very cute. It seems like in a classroom, like a studio, there is always a need for another container to put supplies in.Very creative.

Penny, I am using a new glue. Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. It does dry fast and the glue does not end up on everything.
Debbie, I like making these cans, great for putting a present in!
