I haven't personally tried it, but some people take off the soup can labels and decoupage photographs to the can. It's an interesting way to display pictures, and doesn't require a lot of $$.

I bake with my cans, especially the taller metal coffee cans. The cakes - sweet potato cakes, particularly, come out in such interesting shapes.

this is very off topic, but it makes me remember the trading spaces where this family had a soup can under each leg on the back of their couch because the legs were missing...

I have a magazine from the 70's with instructions to make neat sconces, candle holders, and wall art from cut up tin cans...

Maybe I should scan it and post the various instructions to the Vintage Craft Projects section?

I'll be sure to post here if/when I do!

Rox, that idea sounds absolutely fabulous!   Definetly post a pic!

Someone else posted this link on another thread somewhere (could have been here, could have been Glitter...  I'm not even sure anymore, all I know is I saved the link to my favorites cause I liked it)  


I don't know how to post links, so in all probablility you'll have to copy and paste  Smiley

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

The current issue of Martha Stewart Kids has a section on building tin-can robots.  They are so cute!

This is not for everybody- you have to have a certain esthetic and sense of humour.
cheap decorating idea and great gift for people that have everything- use old glass jars to create your own laboratory look!
take old glass jars and one old barbie (or buck store equivalent). take the barbie apart, put one complete barbie per jar. fill with water, and add pretty food coloring. put lid on. glue gun a piece of feather boa to lid, and voila! barbie inna jar!
if you're on a budget, these can look fabulous lined up in a window, all different colours.
i've given them as last-minute xmas gists a number of times and received great responses.

This is what I do with the following:

*coffee tins (regular and jumbo sizes)
I have decoupaged the large ones then placed the gifts inside.  

*glass jars (salsa, pickle, baby food)
I use the jars for my homade sauces.

*gallon plastic tubs (that ice cream came in)
These are great for storing acessories.  
They would also be cute to decoupage on.

*amber prescription bottles
I use these for storing beats, just label the color.
