Pull ring cans?
You use em?
Don't toss them out for recycling.
Toss them in your craft room for re-purposing.
I know this is barely revolutionary but bloody hell, come on! I have pens, pencils, scissors, markers, tools, sticks, wire and all sorts that need pretty storage and I have 12 cans needing decoration like these. This is blue peter in its earliest form! The basics are the best!
For a standard (uk) heinz baked bean/spaghetti hoops tin
10.3cm x 26cm of patterned paper, stick it up with double sided tape and wazz on a can.
Decorate the edge with a simple ribbon bow or whatever you like.
PS: Pull ring cans are better, no real nasty edges although you might wants to sand the ring pull edges now (I didn't).
Im away tomorrow for a screen test. Ive had a screen test before and whilst it wasn't a super duper one (basically because I was a bag of spanners and nerves) this one should be a breeze. I also get to book a date to sell my new CD whilst Im there. Yippy skippy.
