Gallon Sized Altered Paint Cans: http://www.rubberroadadventures.com/1105KarenGAlteredPaintCan.htm
Quart Size Paint Can: Measurements: I was doing some quart cans for another swap and decided to actually write down the measurements for the paper for a quart-sized can in case it would help anybody: I used two sheets of cardstock 6 3/4" wide by 4 5/8" high. The seams overlap a little. I used ModgePodge/double side tape to adhere the paper. If you use modge podge you need another layer of the modge podge to seal it.
For the lid, I used my Cricut to cut a perfect 3" circle. If I had the option (but I don't), 3 1/4" might be a little better but the perfect circle is wonderful!
It looks like you can make 3 cans with two sheets of paper if you have an allover pattern.

Dyan can we get this as a sticky please?

I'm going to try to do some classes for the slide mounts when I start putting mine together for the swaps.

    Pretty well. I didn't trim the paper close enough in some places and so the filing didn't work as well in some spots. But honestly, I didn't want perfect edges, I wanted it too look distressed, so I am really pleased with it. I inked the edges and they are cute. I made parenthesis {} with a monogram in between.

    Thanks for all the great tips. I am new to scrapbooking and am having trouble feeling confident enough to make final decisions. I have spent hundreds of dollars and only just started really doing the work.

    Thanks for your help. I'm ready!

    I'm wondering if maybe there could be a link of techniques to use w/ the cricut?...
    Maybe pages that have cricut cutouts on them? ... just a thought what do you think?

    Make your own glue dots has been added to the OP.


    If you have an idea, technique, how to that will help us with our scrapbooking please share it with us.

    If you start your own thread please pop over on this thread (since it's a sticky) and plug in the link to your thread and I can get it added for easy reference!!!


    Thanks to all that have submitted great stuff so far!!!!
