Hot Glue Gun

1.  First, make sure your Pringles can is clean and 100% dry.  Measure the length of the can and subtract 1 inch.  Measure that length on your scrapbook paper and mark it with a pencil.  Cut off the remaining paper.

2.  Place a strip of glue vertically down the canister.  Attach the paper to the glue strip, leaving about half an inch of room on the top and bottom of the canister.  Roll the paper around the container and secure with more glue.

3.  Decorate your container as you’d like!
