*Soup Can Makeover*

So I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday just looking around and found this
scrapbook paper that matched my drapes in the craft room perfectly!!
I was sooo excited when i found it...
Since the craft room is still a work in progress i have been trying to organize it the best i can
i need a place to store all my 1,000 scissors


sooo i thought why not a old soup can?
add a little scrapbook paper 

some little hot glue so it will stick

and....

Viola!!

EXCELLENT scissor storage!!

;)

hope you enjoy!!

  10. Hi Andrea! Thanks for linking up this project with Theme Party Thursday. I was JUST thinking of making one of these today, but my edges seemed a little sharp. Did you use any special kind of cutting tool to remove the lid? My cans were the pull-tab kind. Thanks again! :)
