Hey everyone, welcome to the Bombshell Stamps blog hop. The theme is 'Pretty in Pink' and we are making projects that are pink, spring themed or 80's style.
I've been making a lot of home made paper lately and finding a safe place to put it has been a real challenge. This idea was born from that need. It would also work great for wrapping paper storage or even a few umbrellas.
You'll need some large cans - these are gigantic apple sauce cans from Costco - duct tape and something to cover the cans with. The rest is up to you.
Cut the bottom from one of the cans and tape the cans together. Don't worry too much about wrinkles, they won't show too much.
I'm paranoid about rough edges so I covered the top rim with tape so it was smooth and safe.
Tape the inside seam to cover any rough edges as well. This works best with several short pieces of tape instead of one long one. Where you start opening a can, there can be a rough snag; hit it gently with a hammer and it will lie flat under the tape.
Cover with fabric or scrapbook paper. I used linen and attached it with spray adhesive. I tucked the top edge down into the can and secured it.
Embellish however you prefer, taking care to disguise the seam.
I used butterflies from Bombshell Stamps Butterfly Queen Set, flowers made from paper towels (tutorial here) and miscellaneous embellishments left over from other projects.
