"Can" I Please Use You For Storage

Remember that can of soda crackers I showed you here, well I finally finished remodeling it.  Who doesn't need extra storage?  I know I'm always on the lookout for interesting, decorative ways to store my junk.  This is not just another container.  It's prettified!  No one has to know it was a can of soda crackers.  Best of all it's one less thing that ends up in the trash.  Win, win. 


 Here's the before of the offending can. 



 Here it is covered in some type of rayon fabric remnant. 



Here's the final product after the addition of some scrap ribbon and a stenciled monogram.  Not too bad if I say so myself. 


I have enough cans to make a thousand of these!  I really like crackers!  I'm a cracker freak!

  4. I have a set of cans that I've saved to do something similar with. Love the little swirl too. How did you attach your fabric?

  5. @ Rugrats- It's holding tape, pens, paperclips, etc. @ The Mama- I glued the fabric on by coating the can with a layer of Modge Podge. Be careful though, if your fabric is sheer you might need to paint the can first. Good luck! I'd love to see what you come up with.
