I love DIY crafts and especially ones that are practical and useful in our daily lives.
Our Illy Espresso coffee comes in these canisters that I wanted to upcycle. They easily transform into cute containers with just a little bit of paper and glue. It is great to create storage in personalized colors that match your home. This DIY craft is so easy that you’ll want to make a few for your home!
Upcycling Tin Cans with Scrapbooking Paper Instructions:
Basically, you will cut a long piece of paper that will wrap around the tine can.
Step 1 – Measure the Paper
Place your tin on top of the paper and measure the tin’s height—Mark your paper.
Step 2 – Draw a Line
Measure the distance from the top of the tin to the bottom. Now measure your paper and create a line across the paper.
Step 3 – Cut Paper
Now cut the paper along the line. Make sure to have enough to wrap around your can.
Step 4 – Glue
Glue or tape the ends to the can. You don’t need to glue all the paper. Otherwise, it’s apt to bubble.
