In our house the first week of July is a time for celebrating America, shooting fireworks, hosting cook-outs, and having a birthday party! Our middle son is turning ten, woohoo for double digits! This year he is suggesting a camp out and these tin can candleholders, along with citronella candles, will come in handy throughout the campsite. And yes, we'll be using them on the Fourth too!
Gather as many tin cans as you can for this project, the more the better! You'll also need plain white card stock and washi tape. I used my PSA Essentials Peel and Stick Stamper, various Peel and Stick Stamp kits, along with Royal Blue & Holiday Red inkpads.
Start off by cutting your card stock to fit around your tin cans. There really is no one size on this and if the paper doesn't completely fit it's okay, we're going to take care of that in the next step.
Once you have your pieces cut start stamping! Again there really isn't a right or wrong way; I enjoyed mixing up the stars and patriotic symbol stamps in classic red and blue on the white card stock.
Use a bit of washi tape to hold your paper in place, if the paper doesn't quite meet just add a couple strips of tape and it'll be fine.
Trim your tin cans with washi tape for added color, not to mention it'll help the cardstock stay in place, and that's it!
So I had to share this, while I was trying to take a picture outside the littlest hands in the house was having a hard time not touching!
