Studio Tuesday - Ribbon wrapped coffee can tutorial

It's not February anymore, but I never got around to posting this:

He's holding his Valentine container that we made together. Here's a side view:

And here's the top. I let him use my label maker:

We stayed up past his bedtime making it the night before his Valentine's party at school. He enjoyed using the hot glue gun (maybe a little too much) and it was tedious and messy, but when I tucked him in that night he said, "You know mom, I like making stuff with you. We should do that every night." Awww. He was so proud of it when he took it to school the next day.

Coffee cans are great for storing notions and other little things. There are lots of ways you can spruce up a plain old utilitarian can. I recently saw a beaded one Susan Beal posted on CraftStylish and some she made with bias tape and posted on her blog West Coast Crafty.

I've made these over the years and they've held up nicely:

They hold my elastic and bottle caps.

Wanna make your own? It's easy. Just get some ribbon, measure it to fit around the can, and line it up so it fits together and covers the surface.

Then start gluing it down.

I use hot glue, doing an inch at a time, burning myself occasionally. You could try other craft glues if you like. It's going to be messy either way.

If you can line up the edges nice and neat, then more power to you. I can't. You can cover it with a ribbon though, so don't worry if this part isn't pretty.


You'll probably go through about 10 sticks of hot glue, so have them ready. Also, don't let the glue sit too long before you press the ribbon down, or it won't stick right. When you've covered the entire can, glue the end of a ribbon over the edges like this:


Then fold it over and glue it down. When you get to the end, fold it under and glue it down so all your raw edges are nicely hidden.

It'll look like this:


Here's the front:

I didn't like the words on the lid so I found this picture in an old Ladies Home Journal:

I cut out part of the image to fit inside the circle:

and Mod Podged it down.

And here's how it turned out:

Here they are all together:

Sweet tanks for posting this. It totally makes sense But I never would have thought to do it.

Thanks! I'm sure there are lots of other things people could use to cover a coffee can - fabric, paper, etc. - the possibilities are endless.

This is SO cool! I have saved possibly way too many coffee cans and metal cans (all have been washed and are ready to be re-used... somehow) over the years. This is a great idea to also use up some vintage ribbon I have. And with Michael's craft store having cute ribbons on sale in the dollar section, I may go on an endless hot-glueing trail! Thank you for this idea! :)

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=twitter.com/iuyjopg]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://fovunec.freehostia.com]Ordering Viagra to Canada[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Having read other posts, Was just wondering if anyone has managed to figure out how to add audio streams in avi2dvd. Ive downloaded all the latest audio codecs, Renamed the file although it had no unusual symbols originaly, And I have moved the file from its original location, And still nothing in the choose audio stream dropdown menu. I could just delete the movie file and download another but thats not the point. Im a stubborn mule and its something I would like to crack.
