Instructions

  1. Wrap the scrapbook paper around the cleaned chip can.  Trim the paper to fit around the can with a little over hang on the ends. Coat the back of the paper with Mod Podge.  Position the paper on the chip can.  Top-coat with a coat of Mod Podge.  Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles.  Smooth your brushstrokes.  Allow to dry.

  2. Paint the Popsicle sticks Citrus Green.  Allow to dry.  Cut one of the sticks in half.  Glue the sticks to the chip can in the style of flower stems. 

  3. Glue flowers and buttons to the flower stems.  Glue ribbon around the top of the chip can.

  4. For each flower you will need to paint two coffee filters.  Open and flatten the filters.  Place them on wax paper.   Dry-brush paint the flowers.  Begin with a small amount of Aqua paint on your brush.  Lightly paint the filters working from the inside of the circle to the outer edge.  Leave white spaces to add highlights to the flowers.

  5. Add glitter highlights by randomly painting a coat of Turquoise Extreme Glitter over the filters.

  6. Place the two filters wrong-sides together.  Pierce the center with the bamboo skewer.  Slide the filters to almost the end of the skewer.  Add a drop of glue and scrunch the filters to form a flower.

  7. Tie a piece of yarn around the bottom of the flower.  Wrap the yarn around the base of the flower and to the skewer-stem, tie the end in a knot to secure.
