Tutorial for covered Pringles tin


Yes, it is happening! I have a new ( long overdue) tutorial to share with you.
It's so easy to make that it barely needs a tutorial, but I'll show you anyways.




It's a Pringles tin that you cover with patterned paper and then decorate...all according to the season. Works great for Valentine's of course, but also for Christmas, Halloween, Easter and so on.

Perfect to give away your homemade cookies in or just some sweet treats.

 



I found the idea here. She used the regular size Pringles tin, but I don't wanna give away THAT many cookies;)

This is what you'll need:

Small Pringles tin
Mod Podge (or normal glue works too )
Paintbrush
Patterned paper
Paper trimmer
Whatever decorations you choose




Apply Mod Podge to your tin


Take your patterned paper ( approx. 3 2/16 inches x 10 inches ) and cover the tin. Let the sides overlap a bit and make sure your paper is tight and smooth all around.



Now you just have to decorate. Here I used a border punch and the Cricut. When you are done decorating apply some Mod Podge over the whole thing to seal it and give a bit of shine.



 

Then add a bow of some kind on top.
( My cookies were all gone when I took this last picture so this sad tin has nothing in it,ha,ha).




That's it for this time. I promise it won't take so long until next tutorial:)


Pin It!
