It's a speedy little project (right up my street!) but so effective, don't you think!
Here's the know how...
Take some empty, clean food tins. See how sad and in need of a makeover they are, poor things...
Choose some pretty paper. I picked this up in Paperchase a few weeks ago. Fabric would work pretty well too.
Measure the height of your tin. If it has a lip on it, measure just under it. Measure around the tin, adding approximately 1cm extra as an overlap
Cut the paper to size
Add a few lengths of double sided sticky tape to the can at regular intervals
Carefully wrap the paper round the can, making sure you keep it straight all the way round. Secure the overlap with a strip of double sided tape and ta-dah, one prettified tin!
Then ta-dah, ta-dah and ta-dah - four finished tins!
It's thoroughly addictive, be warned!
If you try this, I'd love to see the results!
