How to Make a Pencil Holder Using a Can

How to Make a Pencil Holder Using a Can
Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing a tutorial on how to make your own pencil holder
with a recycled can.  Are you ready?  Here we go...
First you will need these items:

* A recycled soup or bean can (cleaned)
*Scrapbook paper, wall paper or gift wrap paper
* Scissors or other cutting device
* Spray adhesive or mod podge
*Clear tape
This is what I did...

I purchased scrapbook paper which runs about 50 to 60 cents a sheet.
I grabbed a soup sized can from the recycling bin.
I Removed the wrap from the can.
I Cleaned the can with soap and water and set it to air dry.
I measured the original can wrap against the scrapbook paper with a ruler.
Made marks with a pencil and erased later.
Once I had my measurements, started cutting the paper.
I Wrapped the paper around the can, to keep it sturdy,
I took a small piece of tape and taped down one end of the sheet of a paper on the can,
then wrapped the sheet of paper around the can and sealed it with clear tape, you can use mod podge.

We are finally moving and I am so excited
that we will be together as a family.
I am also excited about our new home,
lots of before and after projects coming,
so don't wonder off too far and come back to check it out.

I found this great feature that blogger offers,
and that is to turn your blog into a book.
What a great idea!
