    Altered Paint Cans

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm very intrigued by this new fad and would like to make some for an upcoming craft show... I have the pattern for precision cutting, lots of cool paper from my favorite store, but now I need to know what to attach the paper to the can with... I have tried permanent scrapbook adhesive, and decopauge... the adhesive does not stay put and the decopauge looks ridiculous. Any handy tips would be appreciated!

    rubber cement? put a thin layer on the can and a thin layer on the paper, let them dry, and stick together. seems like it would work. i've used rubber cement to glue paper to lots of random things.

    I just used Mod Podge to stick magazine pages & photos to a rectangular can, and it worked great! I used it to glue the paper to the metal as well as using several coats as a sealer. Great stuff--my first time using it. I'm making the can into a purse, by the way.

    altered paint can

    Hi All!

    I am trying to start this craft for Fathers day. Since a 12x12 paper doesn't fit all the way around the can, what is teh best way to cut the papers? any suggestions on a "pattern" for easy, quick and precise cutting? I have never made one. Any help/advice would be great!

    Thanks!
