You've got lots of cans passing through your house everyday, right? Did you know you can re-purpose them into many different nifty things? Here's one very simple idea.
Start with a can.
Spray it with an adhesive spray and cover with the fabric of your choice. Wrap the rim with seam binding and hot glue into place.
Fill it with supplies like fabrics...
or buttons, stamps, patches, ribbons, whatever you'd like.
Or make a bunch and fill them all.
Notes: The vintage can shown here was shown only for an example, as this project was done a few years ago and I didn't have a before shot. :) I prefer to use new cans that I'd be recycling anyway. (Old cans are so pretty!)
This can was spray painted so the bottom teeny tiny rim didn't distract from the project, however, it's completely unnecessary.
