1. Gather your materials: several empty food cans in varying sizes (cleaned, with the top lid removed), an assortment of patterned paper, scissors and double-sided tape.

2. Measure the height and circumference of each can. Cut one piece of paper to each can's dimensions, adding one inch to the length. 

3. Apply double-sided tape along the entire edge of the back of the paper. Carefully wrap the paper around the side of the cans, pressing to adhere and overlapping the final inch. 

4. Fill your pretty wrapped tins with coloured pencils or other office supplies!
