Don't throw away those old tin cans! Instead, make a recycled gift craft. Tin Can Gift Holders from Heidi Borchers are a fun and unique way to show you care.

Tin Can Gift Holders
 

Materials:

  • Cool2Cast fibre plaster (1/4 cup of C2C plaster to 1/8 cup of water will fill 2 medium lids)
  • Water & measuring cups
  • Zip top plastic bag
  • Tin cans (use a can opener that removes the lids safely with no sharp edges)
  • Stamp pad – any color
  • Small rubber stamps – various shapes and an alphabet
  • Alcohol inks
  • Brush
  • Papers, paint, trims, glue, embellishments and fabric to decorate tin cans

Instructions:

  1. Remove lid from can using the type of can opener that leaves no sharp edges on the lid.
     
  2. Pour 1/4 cup Cool2Cast plaster into zip top bag.

  5. Hold over lid and let the plaster flow from the cut corner into the lid.

  6. Fill to the top edge of can lid. Carefully tap the edge of the lid, to help the liquid plaster settle. Let plaster dry completely. It will be solid to the touch in about 1 hour but leave overnight to dry completely.

  7. Decorate the top by brushing on alcohol inks on the plaster. Let dry. Next, stamp words or sayings with rubber stamps.

  8. When you use the no-sharp edges type of can opener, you should find that the lid will snap back on when you are finished. If your lid does not, just tie ribbon from top to bottom to hold the lid in place in transit.
