It's a Wrap!

It's A Wrap...A Can Wrap that is!
As promised, a super-easy tutorial for you this Monday.
Below are step-by-step instructions for the easiest way that I've found to embellish a clear (or tin) container. I've used this design as my altered project over at Back Porch Memories this month :)
  1. Measure the diameter of your container by measuring across the entire top
2.Multiply that number by 3.17 (or more commonly known as PI).  My can measured 6" across which gives me a little over 19".  
3. Half that number and you'll get the measurement of what you need for two strips of paper.  Mine was 9.5" ( so I cut two strips of cardstock into 9.5" lengths)
4.  Next, decide how wide you'd like your paper...I chose 3" wide.
5.  After attaching your accent paper to your base paper (I stitched mine!), you'll want to sandwich your two paper strips together and punch holes as shown above (so that the holes lines up evenly).  You can use twine or ribbon to tie the two strips together...makes a super fast and easy wrap for any can!
Finally, embellish as desired.  Quick, cute and best of all...E-A-S-Y!
