How to Make this teen gift idea
Step 1: Make sure that your container is clean and dry. Wrap it with red paper lining up the edge of the paper with the top of the can.
Step 2: Trim the excess paper off the bottom if it is too long.
Step 3: Use glue to secure the paper tightly to the cylinder container.
Step 4: Cut a strip of green paper to wrap around the center of the cylinder and glue it into place.
Step 5: Glue the trim right at the seam where the green paper meets the red paper so you have clean looking edges.
Step 6: From the green leftover paper cut out two holly leaves as shown. Form the red paper cut three holly berries as shown.
Step 7: Use the marker to add detail to the leaves if desired.
Step 8: Glue the holly leaves and berries to the can partially on the green and partially on the red so it creates a nice contrast.
Step 9: Write a Holiday message on the front and don’t forget to write your TO: and FROM: as well.
Step 10: Use some of the leftover paper to cut a circle that fits on top of the lid and glue that down.
Step 11: Fill with any sorts of gifts for the holidays along with festive tissue paper, shredded paper, confetti or whatever you find fun.
