Coffee Can Make-Over

Just wanted to share a make-over for my coffee can.  This is a handy dandy little helper to have around!  You can dress it up or down.  If this was done for kids to use, I would probably stamp images and not add too many 3-d items. 

This is a small tin so I had to use the single roll tissue.  Remove the cardboard center, place the roll in the coffee tin and start pulling the tissue from the center of the roll.  Cut a star or X in the lid and pull the tissue out--I had to play a bit to get the right tension, so the tissue comes out smoothly--not too snug or loose.

I used Bo Bunny paper, Stampin Up cardsock, Fiskars punch, focked rub-ons from Prima, flowers and ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by  :)


  1. what an amazing and beautiful transformation dear Nancy!


  2. Wonderful Idea I wonder if that coffee can will still be in the house when I get home??? What a wonderful idea for every room in the house and in the car come to think of it.. Oh boy have a few to make Take Care

  3. Wellisn't that just so cool?!! I love what you made with it!

  4. This is wonderful and I love the idea of something sturdy like this (maybe not so embellished though) for in my car, as the Kleenex box gets pretty beat up looking in a matter of days.

  5. What a neat idea :)
    So pretty as well

  6. Wow! How clever is this! I love it and just happen to have an old coffee can close at hand. Thanks so much for the inspiration and have a Merry Christmas.
