So, I have been following Young House Love for a while now, and recently they started a new section titled “Pinterest Challenge”. It allows viewers and followers to link to their creations from inspirations they found on Pinterest. I like to call them “Pinspirations”! If you haven’t heard of Pinterest, then I’m sorry for ya!
A few weeks ago, I found this great Pinspiration and documented my creation not even thinking about linking to YHL challenge. Well, just so turns out that I think it would work great for a challenge. So, without further ado, here is my Pinspiration turned creation.
Recycled soup cans modpodged with craft paper or DIY printed paper.
I started off with a ravioli can left over from my toddlers lunch. As I was starting to chuck it into the recycling, I realized I could maybe use it for something…Lightbulb! I had it! I was going to make some great pencil and marker holders. One’s that were hip and bold.
Earlier that week, I had made a chevron print stamp out of an eraser…an idea I got from You’re So Martha…( love her blog, go check it out! )
First I measured the length and the width of the can and cut my piece of paper to the appropriate size.
Then I started stamping away. The pattern wasn’t perfect, but come on…what really ever IS perfect in life.
After the ink dried, I took some Elmer’s Glue (didn’t even need ModPodge) and ran it along the inside of the paper.
After all the glue was in place, I rolled up the paper onto the can and secured it in place with some rubber bands until it was completely dry.
Once dry, I removed the rubber bands and plopped my pencils, markers and scissors in the can.
Ta-Da…My beautiful new pencil holder!
