Personalized Recycled Container Keepsake for Father's Day
Repurpose and recycle by turning an empty cylinder container and lid into an awesome Father's Day personalized gift box keepsake or use as a holder for those important items like pens and pencils or special mementos.
It's really fun to make in a few easy steps: Using the cylinder can as a guide, measure and cut chalkboard fabric to size.
Cut out an opening on the fabric slightly smaller than photo.
Place photo on back of fabric opening and secure with tape.
Apply glue to back around opening and center fabric with photo on container. Add additional glue to container and smooth on fabric around the entire container.
To decorate the lid, trace circle on chalk fabric and cut out slightly smaller than lid and attach to top of lid with glue.
Add a small gift - like folded handkerchiefs, socks or tie - inside for a lovely Father's Day gift.
And on the outside, write a thoughtful sentiment in chalk to personalize the gift! And when the gift is removed, the container can function as a pen and pencil holder!
