I downloaded a template from Martha Stewart to assist me in cutting out the craft paper. You see, I'm not very good with measurements and numbers. :)
Using this template as a guide, I cut out my craft paper and prepared the tin cans by peeling the labels off and thoroughly washing them. Here they are drying on my counter, waiting to be made beautiful.
I chose good ole' Elmer's Craft Bond spray adhesive to adhere my craft paper to the cans. I suspect there are multiple different products that can be used for this step, but this is what I had on hand.
Note to self: be more careful when using this stuff. Once it is on your fingers, it NEVER comes off! Anyways, the spray adhesive worked perfectly and soon I had three beautiful utensil holders.
Aren't they pretty? I popped some silverware in them to show you all what they will look like.
So, there you have it. Quick, simple, easy. This project took me less than 20 minutes from start to finish. What do you think?
