This one is so easy you could have your kids make it. Still, its fun.

Take your run  of the mill soup can, cover it in black paper--or any solid color you like (i used a large magazine ad) glue it together tightly.

find a picture that strikes your fancy (what could be more striking than pam grier?)

glue down. I then covered the whole thing in clear packing tape to seal it. I"m sure there are better ways to deal with this last step. I made this awhile ago, and am not 100% happy with it but its still a good place to store my talking darth vader pen. Smiley

I love turning garbage into something cool!! I have a few of these kickin around. But no Foxy Brown graphics, damn!

I made sea salt scrub for xmas gifts and used the containers similarly: I cut off the tops and made a jagged pointy top, painted em with acrylics, punched holes at the top, and ran some wire through to make a handle. I had my 4 year old decorate them with glitter pens- so cute.

Also. missy, is it okay that I have pen envy, cos that penis cool! *nyuk nyuk*

I have a similar pen cup, but I kept the orignal paper label.  On my desk I have an old goya black beans can in spanish.  Old cans or cans from Ethnic food markets with great graphic are great for decoration.  You could also protect the outside with mod podge.

When God made the arse, he didn't say, 'Hey, it's just your basic hinge, let's knock off early.' He said, 'Behold ye angels, I have created the arse. Throughout the ages to come, men and women shall grab hold of these, and shout my name!
