Check it Out! Last week I shared my adorable and easy to make floral petal butterflies. You can check out that post HERE. This week I wanna share another easy craft that I used some of those butterflies on.
Because I love using old objects in new ways I of course have some pringles can lying around. My youngest son DJ LOVES pringles! So over the years I found many uses for them. From storing paint brushes to creating these awesome gift containers. I have used these for gifting cookies in the past but just recently I was cutting a container up and experimenting with another project. I had the bottom portion left in tact so I decided to make mini containers for gifting things like rings, bracelets and even candy.
I used those cute little butterflies inside too to dress it up. The supplies for this project are actually really basic...
- clean pringles can
- hot glue
- mod podge
- fabric or scrapbook paper
- flower petal butterflies
- box cutter
To get started I measured and made marks all around the can to get an even line to cut. Using my box cutter I cut the top off the can.
Next I cut a piece of fabric to fit around and down inside the can. You could also use scrapbook paper to do this, but I like the pliability of fabric. I lined the edge of fabric up with the outside bottom edge of the can and used my paintbrush and mod podge to adhere and seal the fabric to the can.
I pushed the remaining fabric at the top inside the can and sealed it down as well with the mod podge.
To finish off the inside of the can I cut a strip of felt that fit the inside rim and used hot glue to seal it on. Using the lid I cut three round pieces of felt as well. One for the bottom of the can, one for the inside of the lid and one for the top of the lid.
I added lace around the bottom outside edges of the can as well as the lip of the lid. I then used flowers to finish embellishing the outside. I made the flowers on the tops of the cans using strips of fabric. I'll post that tutorial in an upcoming Make It Monday. I may be slightly addicted to making them! lol I also added a butterfly and a little lace circle to the inside.
As I said these are really easy to create, pretty cheap also and they make great gift containers. You don't even have to cut the can to make the taller one.
