These containers are super cute, super easy, and super cheap. What else could you want?
I bought a couple of these pencils holders from dollar tree. Then found some cute scrapbook paper. I cut the paper to the right size, by wrapping it around the container, making sure it is flat against the surface (it'll look weird cause the can is tapered), then traced a pencil around the inside top lip of the paper, and likewise for the bottom. Then I cut on the lines. This gives your paper a perfect fit. I used hot glue to attach the paper to the metal. Lastly, I used some stickers to decorate and added a box top/pull tab. For extra cuteness, add a ribbon border at the top.
I'm hoping these cute containers will encourage parents to bring in their box tops.
We collect pull tabs for the Ronald McDonald House.
Well I hope that I've inspired you to start on your back to school projects. I'd love to see your take on this project. Leave a link to your pictures/blog.
