You’ll Want to Join Our Gang!

By Dawn (scrapnn-MO)

We are going to make you a container to use as storage for whatever purpose you desire.

Step 1:
Gather your supplies.
3 Different PPs (I used Paper Trunk Gigi Collection)
Paper Trimmer
Oatmeal Container
glue and water (you will need equal parts of both, mix in the bowl together)
bowl
foam paint brush
embellishments of your choosing
compass
scissors

Step 2:
Take your first sheet of PP and cut your first size 12 inches long by 7 inches tall and take the scrap and cut you a piece that is 7 inches long by 5 inches tall this piece is to cover the gap at the back.

Step 3 & 3a:
Take your 12 by 7 sheet you just cut and butt the bottom edge up and make yourself a line all the way around the oatmeal container.

Step 4:
This line is for you to know where to stop with your glue/water solution that your applying with foam paint brush.

Step 5:
Apply your two cut out sheets of pp, starting with the smaller size first and overlap the edges with the larger size. Take you fingers and smooth out any bubbles and wrinkles you have. Let dry for 5 minutes or longer if neccessary.

Step 6:
Now take you second sheet of PP and cut yourself a piece that is 12 inches long by 2 3/4 inches tall along with another piece from the same sheet 5 inches long by 2 3/4 inches tall this small piece is to cover the gap in the back. Apply the glue/water solution to the back of the pp.

Step 7:
Apply to top edge of oatmeal container. Take you fingers and smooth out any bubbles and wrinkles you have. Let dry for 5 minutes or longer is neccessary.

Step 8:
Take your final sheet of pp and cut one piece 12 inches long by 1 inch tall and another piece 5 inches long by 1 inch tall, this small piece is to cover the gap in the back. Apply glue/water solution to the back as well. Apply the pp to the bottom of your oatmeal container. Take you fingers and smooth out any bubbles and wrinkles you have. Let dry for 5 minutes or longer if neccessary.

Step 9:
Apply your glue/water solution to the whole container to seal it and let dry for 5-10 minutes. Make sure you cover the whole thing.

Now for your lid

Lid Step 1:
In the middle of you lid there should be a little nipple in the center. Take your compass and place the point there and move the pencil out to the rim. Mine measured 2 1/4 inch.

Lid Step 2:
Take that measurement and make your circle on 3rd sheet of pp. Cut out with scissors. Apply glue/water solution to the back of the pp. Let dry for 5 minutes or longer if neccessary.

Lid Step 3:
Then apply another coat of glue/water solution to the whole lid to seal. Let dry for another 5-10 minutes.

Last and final step for both the lid and container.
Embellish to your liking!

Thanks for coming by and letting me share! Enjoy your new alter oatmeal container!
