Recycled Formula Milk Cans

These tins are empty formula milk cans.  The big cans are used to organize rolled wrappers, craft papers etc. The ones I decoupaged are smaller, just roomy enough to accommodate Teddy and his friends.

Here's how To:

Choose the paper you want to decorate your tins with. I have different kinds of decorative paper so i used a different theme for each can. I have a vintage themed one, an autumn design, a papemelroti drama, a gold coin in red background, a vintage map inspired craft paper and many more.

Cut them into small squares.

Apply decoupage glue on the surface of the tin then start adhering your paper cut outs until the entire surface is covered. Let your creativity arrange the papers in a way that pleases you.

Let dry completely.

Apply varnish at least 3 times to seal making sure to let each layer dry before applying the next. You will be surprised with the result. The images/paper cutouts looks inlaid and as if they were painted on the surface and not adhered upon.
