What I'm working on for the guys in my family

Posted by   + Show Post

I took small paint cans +lids and covered them in fabric that fit their football prefrences.

Now I'm working on bad call bricks (sponge made to look like a brick), costers, and snacks to go inside. I just need to find a store that sell clear bags to put them in.

 Maybe cut a hole or a slit in the top for their loose change?

Very nice. You can get cello bags right at the Dollar Tree

You could use scrapbook paper instead of fabric and even personalized the containers.

 These look great.  I have done the paint cans before but never with fabric usually just laminated decorated cardstock.  I also love the idea of cutting a hole for change.  I normally bought my cans at Ace Hardware, they have the larger cans with the handles if anyone needs those.  Great Job!
