The can for this project is a "coffee" can that I got on clearance at Michael's earlier this summer. Now I wish I'd bought more because I love that they're pre-painted in a khaki/beige color with the red lid. They're also a matte finish so that the paper sticks really nicely to it.
This can was made for my mom's birthday. I used 2 - 12x12 pieces of paper and had enough left over to make a birthday card (not pictured here) to go with it and 4 blank cards.
