- 18 oz oatmeal container (empty)
- Hot glue gun
- Mod Podge
- Scrapbook Paper (2 patterns if preferred)
- Ribbon (Optional)
- Pen or pencil
Step 1: Lay the oatmeal container on its side. Line the bottom of the oatmeal container up with the edge of the back of the scrapbook page. Trace a line to determine where to cut, roll the container and continue this process across the paper. Cut scrapbook paper on dotted line.
Step 2: Place 5-7 hot glue strips surrounding the container
Step 3: Wrap scrapbook paper around container.
Step 4: Because I was using scrap scrapbook paper (pun intended!), I had some space left. So I chose a scrap of a matching pattern and glued a strip over the gap.
Step 5: Mod Podge the whole thing for a gloss finish and to make the container more resistant to stains & water. It was important to Mod Podge the strip very carefully so it lays down on the larger scrap with no space or bubbles. Mine had a few bubbles that I left for effect... you may or may not choose to do this.
Step 6: Let dry!
Step 7: While drying, trace the outer circle of the lid onto the back of the paper (I used the same pattern as the strip) and cut the circle approximately 1/4" in all the way around so it will fit inside the lid. Next, put hot glue on the lid and fit your circle right inside. Cover with a layer of Mod Podge.
Step 8: Tie ribbon around the container & voila - you're done!
