DIY: Organizer cans & free printable wrappers by Maiko Nagao

If you follow my blog, you should know by now that I love to upcyle! It is so much fun to make something out of waste, not to mention upcycling can cut your carbon footprint by preventing you from buying new stuff! Plus, you’re saving energy used at the recycling plant. So, here's a DIY organizer tin can tutorial. To make it easier for you all, I've made my prints available to download - for free! 


1.  Use cans with a rim on the top and bottom. The rims give the can a clean finished look.
2.  Download my free printable patterns and print to fit to A4. (download links below)
3.  Fold the top and bottom of the print to fit the height of the can. (there's no need to cut as the fold gives it a cleaner finish)
4. Tape at the back. As you never see the back, it doesn't need to be perfect.

You can use these in the shed to organize your screws and nails or for your makeup brushes. The possibilities are endless!

Happy crafting everyone!
