Office Bliss by Claire Campanella
My office can get a little crazy and my supplies end up everywhere, especially after finishing a project. I wanted to create some simple storage containers that I could leave out on my bureau or desk and not be visually assaulted by another cluttered mess.
I used the Cut ’n Boss to repurpose these cans into beautiful storage containers for my craft supplies. I was able to clear up the clutter and display my supplies at the same time.
Different sized vegetable and spice cans
A clean dry towel
Double sided tape
3 differently patterned papers from Michael’s
Cut n’ Boss
Cut n’ Boss plates A and D
Craftwell Modern Stripe folder
Craftwell Alpha A6 folder
First, I removed the labels from the cans using soap, warm water, and Goo Gone. I also used a razor blade to scrape off some excess glue on the cans and then rinsed and dried them.
I fed the papers through the Cut n’ Boss to add pattern and texture to my containers and give them a nice pop.
I mostly used double sided tape to attach the paper to the cans. I used the glue stick for the edges that weren’t laying perfectly flat. I also used an X-acto knife around the rim of the can to even out the edges of the paper if they weren’t perfectly aligned with the edge of the can.
