Today’s tutorial was requested by a few readers. I love receiving feedback from readers. I’ll do my best to post a tutorial for any project you wish to see. So grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started.
First, you’ll need to collect a few cans. I use the food service size cans for their size.
Second, you need a can opener that releases the seal that holds the top of the can to the base. There are many can openers on the market that cut on the side of the can instead of the top. This eliminates the sharp edges, which is very important.
Remove both the top and bottom from the can base.
Next you’ll need to punch holes into the first lid about two inches apart. I punch the holes using my Crop-a-Dile tool. It punches holes into the lids very easily.
After punching two holes into the first lid, stack the first lid on top of the second lid. With a marker, mark the two holes. This is your guide to punching holes into the next lid so they line up when you attach the lids. Remove the first lid and punch the dots you just created. You will need to continue this step with each remaining lid. I find marking the holes the easiest way to get all the lids to line up correctly.
After all the lids have been punched, stack the lids and attach rings.
That’s all there is to it. All that’s left is to give it life. That part is up to you!
How will you decorate your mini lid album?
Thanks for stopping by.
