While this isn't my best project, the idea is cool and I have a lesson learned to share! I appologize for not having all the pictures for the project. My little one deleted them on my phone so I don't have the inside shots of the can and I didn't have another can. :(
This type of project has been around for a while. The first time I saw it was by my friend Yolanda, yolibean on YouTube. This can be done for almost any occasion, birthday, Easter, Halloween, etc.
I used the Enjoy the seasons cartridge for my papers and printed out a piece to wrap the can in the polka dot paper. I used some glossy accents on the smaller circles. The top and bottom band were cut from a piece of paper I had in my stash. I edge punched them with a Martha punch.
The label is from the Craft Room Exclusives cartridge and I choose coordinating colors to create my layers.
The top looked too plain so I created a paper flower from tissue, like we used to do as kids. I only had white so I used some Glimmer Mist on it to give it a bit of zip. Warning, go easy on the Glimmer Mist. It is water and the paper thin....they don't like each other much!
I added some shredded tissue paper and a hand written note that states "April Fools". To assemble this, make sure you place the note in first facing the top or it won't come out first.
Ok so here is the lesson learned....I tried to use tissue paper in my imagine. Don't try this at home! My mat isn't super sticky and I did do the print on "DRAFT", however, after it printed it was stuck to my mat! And I mean stuck! Fortunately the tissues is thin and doesn't like water, so after 10 minutes of scraping I had the brilliant idea to wash my mat. It came off but I had thought I ruined my mat.
