This is a step by step tutorial on how I made an Enfamil can into an altered box using supplies from ASC Craft Supplies and from my stash. The girl that cuts my mom’s hair watched all of my YouTube videos and gave the can to my mom to give to me. She wanted to see what I could come up with. Even though I haven’t been feeling crafty lately, it comes and goes, I wanted to make this with her in mind. My mom gave her the can today and she absolutely loved it. She said she was taking it home, because she didn’t want to risk anyone taking it from the salon.
ASC Supply List for the written tutorial project:
Sparkle & Shine – Mirri Magic Collection – Glitz & Glammer Sheets (Hop on over to my YouTube Channel to see this paper collection in all its glory)
49 & Market Vintage Shades Potpourri Blue Flowers (Not currently available)
49 & Market Botanical Potpourri Snow Flowers (Not currently available)
Supplies and tools from my craft room:
Black Linen Card Stock
Pink Lace Trim
Gold line washi tape
Gold Chunky Glitter Paper
Various sized and colored flowers
Clear Flat back Gemstones
1.18″ White Grosgrain Ribbon
Gold Leaf Vine
Small flower punch
Art Glitter Glue
Step One: I removed the label from the can and wiped out the inside to make sure that I had a clean surface to start with.
Step Two: Cut a piece of the black linen card stock wide enough and long enough to cover the can. I then chose what color of the lace trim I wanted to use and applied that around the top and bottom of the can.
Step Three: Cut a piece of the white Grosgrain ribbon long enough to fit around the center of the can. In order to secure the ribbon use small amounts of hot glue around the can. I spaced small dots of hot glue about an inch apart. I wanted to make sure the ribbon wouldn’t move.
Step Four: I cut the border from one of the Glitz & Glammer sheets and fussy cut around the flowers and added this strip over the ribbon around the center of the can. The border did not completely cover the center, but that was ok because I knew I was going to be adding one of the images from the other sheet as the focal point.
Step Five: I took the main focal piece, which has the pretty dress, and hot glued that down to the Gold glitter chunky card stock. Then I fussy cut around the image to give it a 1/4″ border. Once the glue cooled I added hot glue down the center of the back of the cardstock and adhered it to the front of the can making sure that the gap from the strip that didn’t go all the way around the can wasn’t showing. I added one of the crystal bows to the top of the image.
Step Six: I took the Darice® Crystal Rhinestone Flourish Bling Sticker Strips and cut them down, so that I had four separate pieces to decorate the can. I then randomly placed them around the outside of the can.
Step Seven: I took a small flower punch and punched out 12 flowers out of various spots on the sheet that I cut the border from and used my flower shaping mat and tools to give the flowers some dimension. I then glued small clear gemstones to the center of each flower and when they were dry I hot glued them to various spots around the outside of the can. I also glued medium sized clear gemstones around the can on the bottom and top pieces of pink lace.
Step Eight: I used the left over flowers that I punched, some of the 49 & Market flowers, and the bridal bouquet stamens to decorate the main focal image on the front of the can.
Step Nine: Now it was time to decorate the lid. I went back and forth on whether or not I should paint the plastic lid, but then decided to cover the edge with the Gold lined washi tape and cut out a circle from the left over sheet that I cut the border from to cover the lid. I hot glued the circle to the top and then started hot gluing down the Gold leaf trim before gluing down the flowers. Once those were in place I hot glued the main large flower to the center.
Step Ten: Finally, I hot glued the remaining flowers that I picked out around the larger flower and then hot glued the other stamens in between the flowers, because I felt it just needed something extra.
It really turned out to be a gorgeous altered can and I’m just glad that the recipient felt the same way. I’m really looking forward to using this special paper in two more projects I will be doing in May. The paper collection was designed for making cards, but when I saw it I just knew that I wanted to go outside the box and do something different with it.
