.:Tutorial Tuesday - Re-purposed formula cans:.
This idea comes from Fawnda over at Fireflies and Jellybeans. I'd been holding on to a couple of old formula cans and when I saw her post, finally knew how I was going to use them! My daughter's first birthday was last week, so I figured this was the perfect time to transform them and get some good use out of them.
What you need:
- old washed out formula cans (labels removed)
- modge podge, double sided tape - your choice of adhesive
- scrapbook paper
- scissors/paper cutter
- embellishments (optional)
Measure your paper to the height of your formula can. I lined up my paper and measured under and above the lips of the can.
Use a paper cutter or scissors to cut your paper.
A typical 12x12 paper doesn't go all the way around the can, so you'll need to cut an additional strip to cover up where it doesn't quite reach.
I used double sided tape to adhere the paper to the can.
Use ribbon and whatever embellishments to jazz your cans up.
Use your cans for whatever you had in mind! I thought mine looked fantastic holding the napkins and forks for Reece's party!
