Workspace DIY: Paper Covered Tins
This is an easy weekend DIY to brighten up your studio or office. I had some old tins lying around and decided to finally cover them up.
You will need:
- Patterned paper of your choice. I used origami paper from my stash but you could also recycle some pretty giftwrap.
- Tins washed and dried. I used an old Ikea tin and a powdered baby milk tin.
- Craft knife or scissors.
- Metal ruler.
1. Measure your tins and cut the paper to size using the craft knife or scissors. Leave an extra 2 inches extra at the top.
2. Use the glue to secure the paper to the outside of your tin.
3. Fold the top of the paper over the inside of the tip and glue down.
4. Take another sheet of paper to use on the inside of your tin. Cut to size. You want this to be slightly shorter than the tin.
5. Glue it inside the tin with the pattern facing outwards. That’s it!
So quick and easy and brightens up your studio instantly. Now you just need to fill it with lots of lovely things.
This was my first DIY so I’d love to hear your thoughts.
