Altered Paint Cans

These are a couple of paint cans that I altered. The first 3 is a gallon size paint can I made for my MIL for Mothers Day 2007. She's a big Tony Stewart fan, so I started with Black Cardstock, attached with Mod Podge. 2nd coat of MP to seal it and added my piece of Tony Stewart paper half way down the can. Coat of MP over the Tony Stewart Paper and then wrapped the racing ribbon around the can. Again sealing it with Mod Podge. Embellished the back with 3d Stickers. Letters were cut out with my Cricut. Cartridge used is Tear Drop. Then a variety of ribbons tied around the handle. Tags and can opener attached with fibers. Glass stones hot glued to top of paint lid. The card I made with a SU! Set. I stamped a bottom layer and then embossed the same stamp on a top layer of vellum. The blue mat is embossed with the Swirls Cuttlebug Folder and the heart is a card charm, as well as the word charm at the cottom.

Below is one I made for a friend. It's a pint size can. Made the same way, with mod podge to attach papers, letters and ribbons. Cricut used once again for letters. Glass pebbles and painted drawer knob hot glued to can lid.
