I made this today! A mom from Jewel's class came up with the general idea of turning empty food cans into cute little pencil holders.
In it's former life, this was a can of pinto beans. I cleaned, painted and decorated it with American Crafts rub-on transfers. I Mod-Podge'd on the lacey ribbon. I'm using it as a temporary holding spot for some Valentine-Day stickers.
However, I think this little can will find a permanent spot on one of my shelves. In fact, I'm thinking of making a bunch more in different shapes and sizes. Wouldn't it be a perfect holder for scrapbook pens, paintbrushes or small tools?
