First I decorated my can with paper. Since I only had 12 x 12 paper, I had to use 2 sheets and I just glued them to the can overlapping each other in coordinating colors. I added some Washi Tape to the seams on each side. You can add ribbon and other embellishments as desired.
I wanted a bow on top of my gift so I made one with 2 coordinating colors of Washi Tape using a simple bow making method.
- Step 1 - Choose tape colors
- Step 2 - Cut 2 strips of tape and stick them together, sticky sides together so you have strips that are smooth and can be formed into loops
- Step 3 - Create loops by twisting strips and sticking the ends together. I used 4 strips of each color and one round loop for the center
- Step 4 - Alternating colors, layer the loops to form a bow and add the round loop to the center to finish it off.
I really love how it turned out and I know the recipient is gonna love being able to use not only the gift inside but the container itself!
